Stamp River Opens for Fall Chinook and Coho
fly or Gear Fishing
Sept 1 2015
Greetings from Port Alberni!
Back from a tremendous season in Kyuquot Sound and now tuning up the river fishing gear for another season on the Stamp River
This fall there is also tremendous Coho retention opportunities in the Stamp and Somass Rivers.
The daily limit is two per day with no maximum size limit. The possession limit away from your permanent place of residence is twice the daily limit.
You can spinner fish, spoon fish, jig fish or fly fish for Coho. All of which are well known local methods to successful catches.
This fall there is Chinook retention opportunities in the Stamp and Somass Rivers.
The daily limit is two per day, both which must be under 77cm which is about 15 pounds. The possession limit away from your permanent place of residence is twice the daily limit. Big Chinook must be released.
Bait is allowed to be used in the river this year within certain sections. This will be a great bonus in getting into some quality Chinook! Gear fishing or fly fishing both are permitted.
Look for Steelhead to become more aggressively feeding once the Salmon start to spawn in October.
