Whistler Fishing Spots and Fishing Guides
Whistler Fishing Spots and Fishing Guides. Whistler is best known for its breath-taking scenery and passionate community. If you ever get lost or have a general question, do not hesitate to ask a Whistler local because they will gladly take the time to point you in the right direction! The majority of people that live and visit Whistler are outdoor enthusiasts so we are all in the same boat. Whistler is situated in an ideal location that gives tourists access to a wide variety of different terrain within minutes. You can start your day exploring one of the many hiking/biking trails and be on the ocean by the early afternoon! Every stream and lake are glacial fed, making the water extremely cold. As the streams and rivers pound down through the mountains it takes on a very high oxygen level. Trout and Salmon love Cold and well oxygenated waters. Most of the smaller lakes surrounding Whistler have a healthy source of aquatic food that include; Dragonfly nymphs, damsel nymphs and freshwater shrimp to name a few. This accounts for the rapid growth of Trout in the Whistler area.
