Cowichan River and Stamp River

Anyone here fish this area on the Vancouver Island. Maybe you can make some suggestion or share some history. I have a potential contact that guides the area and might be looking into a trip this winter. Never been out west so anything you got will help.

Thanks, eriefisher.

Which way to the river?

I live close to The Stamp River(how could you guess), and swing flies all winter, IMHO it is not a very productive river in the winter for the fly fisherman, it's a fairly large river, with conditions dictated by the weather, it can go from drought conditions to blown out conditions in two days depending on the amount of rain we get in that certain period, with that in mind it is more set up to the gear fisherman in the winters, that is what majority of guides do then, shore access is not the best, a few honey holes where majority of fisherman congregate, a guided trip will be your best bet. The Cowie OTOH has great trout fishing on the fly, steelhead present, a much more pleasant river to fish, guided by drift boats only. Our winter steelhead returns on The Stamp over the past two years has been pretty dismal and if I was spending my buck coming from back east, The Stamp would spell SKEENA

There is more Bull***t in fly fishing than in a Texas cattle yard Lefty Kreh

I fished the Stamp for a couple days once. Lots of bears when I was there.

Not all who wander are lost.
