Whistler/Squamish Area Lakes: Brohm lake is ice free as is Browning lake (Murrin Park). Whistler lakes are still frozen!
Whistler/Squamish Area Rivers: Fishing over the weekend was slow most likely due to the cold water temperatures. Peak activity was in the afternoon for both steelhead and char. Flies that worked were black and natural sculpin patterns and size #8 fry patterns (sparce). Chum fry were visible on the river edges and lots of merganser activity also indicates that the fry migration is in full swing. Watch for slashing fish! Using an intermediate clear line is advantagious in low clear conditions.

Upper Squamish Valley Rd.: Snowcovered with large ruts. A 4×4 with a high clearance is recommended if you plan to travel up there! I give it at least another week or two before the snow is gone.
