Stamp River Salmon Fishing Report Sept 16 2016

Sept 16 2016

Opening Week awesome!


This past week guests have been having experiences of a lifetime. One fellow has had over thirty hookups in three days while fly fishing. The quality of the Coho and Chinook are beautiful and with a surplus this year retention opportunities also exist.

Both spin fishing and fly fishing have been productive and the fish are already through out the entire rivers system. Since there are a range of regulations in place that open up all kinds of fishing this is a good opportunity for gear, spin, bait or fly fishermen to have good days.

Rain now this week and the Elsie Lake dam has also scheduled a release of water to coincide with the low pressure system to compliment salmon migration. We expect the river to rise and more fish to enter as well.



The daily limit is 4 salmon per day of which:

  • Two (2) may be Chinook of which only one (1) may be greater than 77 cm. in length, and
  • Two (2) may be coho, marked or unmarked.

This year the Fall River Season is selling out fast and by the looks of the size of the Coho, its a season you really want to be a part of.
