Special Notes: Map marker shows the river location, not a fishing spot. Bait ban, release all Steelhead. Chinook in Sept, Chum in Oct and Pink on odd years. Late winter Steelhead peaking in April. The most popular fishing areas on the Squamish are just up and downstream of the Cheakamus outlet, and what has come to be known as the 24 mile section (26 to 32 kilometers above Cheakamus bridge). This portion of the scenic upper Squamish has several gravel bars where anglers can camp along the river on weekends. Fishing for pink salmon becomes available in August and September. Chum salmon and coho salmon fisheries are available from early October to late December. Between January and April, anglers can enjoy targeting a variety of winter species, including bull trout, coastal cutthroat trout, rainbow trout and winter steelhead.
