Special Notes: No fishing between signs 200m above & 500m below Stamp Falls, June 15-Nov 15. No fishing from the confluence with Ash River upstream to the Great Central Lake dam Jan 1-April 30. Bait ban all year ABOVE signs at Girl Guide Falls. The fishing season on the Stamp River practically runs all year long. Winter steelhead move into the river starting in January, and will be in the river with decent numbers right up until the end of April. At the beginning of May the summer run steelhead will start showing up in small numbers. A sockeye run is also present in the river in July and August, and sometimes there are recreational openings in the Somass River much like the ones in the Fraser. Once August hits the summer steelhead will be in full swing and Chinook will be entering the system. September up until November is prime time, with good amounts of coho, Chinook, chum and summer run steelhead around for the fishing enthusiast.
