Stamp River - High and Good Clarity

River cleaned up after last weeks heavy rains

Feb 13 2015

This Weeks Highlights

Last weekends major rain event kept us off the water for two full days. The river was blown way out but has transformed back into good conditions by the middle of this week.  The early week was too high and really dark for good success from shore.  The boat trips didn't do that great earlier in the week either but has improved since then.

Current Conditions (as of Feb 13, 2015 4:54pm

The river is in high condition but very fishable with great clarity.  The falls pool was the best the last few days but some more fresh Steelhead showed in the lower sections yesterday.

Raining very hard today but with sun in the forecast it should be a perfect weekend to get out and on the river!

The river has dropped alot since the last big rain last weekend but is still in high conditions

The river conditions graphs below are generated from the upper system near Robertson Creek Hatchery. The lower system is generally higher and has more color, however this data is still very useful as it will indicate the trend.  The Stamp Falls data system was wiped out with the past flood and not hearing of any immediate plans for replacement.
