Gillian Steele

Fishing Guide

Gillian has spent years in the footsteps of her father chasing down salmon, steelhead, and trout in the rivers of the lower mainland. Her command of fly-fishing developed in the Skagit Valley where very early on she learned to dead drift dries for wild rainbows and became consumed by the realm of delicate presentations. Every September through until November you will find Gill chasing coho in the Squamish, Cheakamus, and Ashlu rivers as her familiarity with the Sea-to-Sky systems has materialized from countless days in the pursuit of fish. Having worked in her family tackle shop since she was 15, Gill is well versed in local knowledge and has profound affinity for working with people.
