Fishing in Squamish
Before Squamish was discovered as an outdoor recreation mecca, it was a world-renowned destination for anglers. The surrounding freshwater rivers, lakes and saltwater of the Howe Sound have a wide variety of fish. The rivers including the Mamquam, Cheakamus, Squamish, and Elaho have been known to run thick with all five Pacific varieties of salmon as well as Dolly Varden Char and Cutthroat Trout.
There are a number of areas for fishing in Squamish. Browning Lake at Murrin Provincial Park is a great place for Rainbow Trout fishing and is stocked regularly in spring and fall. Brohm Lake is also stocked with Rainbow Trout as well as a natural supply of Cutthroat Trout and Dolly Varden Char.
