is a year round angling dream. Squamish, BC is tucked away at the head of Howe Sound, halfway between downtown Vancouver and the world class mountain resort of Whistler. Squamish, has a long history of exceptional angling opportunities and can provide the focused angler with a good range of lodging, food and outdoor activities, all within close proximity to excellent fishing.

It is not uncommon when fishing in the area to see mountain goats precariously perched on steep cliff sides, black bears munching on salmon, cougar and wolf tracks in abundance and a growing herd of elk running wild in the valley.
