STS Guiding Service is a charter with a long-standing tradition. Founded by Captain Vic Carrao in 1994, it is based in Mission Marina, located some 50 miles east of Vancouver. With a fleet of more than 20 boats and guides, they are certainly the largest operator in the region.
You will be fishing aboard one of the many 24-25’ Hells Canyon Marine jet boats that are part of Captain Vic’s fleet. These have all the necessary safety and navigation gear, and plenty of space for up to four prospective anglers. These boats are custom built and designed to be able to traverse waters as shallow as 6’’ but also run smoothly in rougher conditions.
STS Guiding Service offers both freshwater and saltwater fishing trips. Some of the fish you will be targeting during these trips are Pacific Salmon (all five species), Snapper, Halibut, Trout, Sturgeon, and more besides. Fishermen of all colors are welcome and gear for fly fishing is also included in the price. From trolling to jigging and plunking, the captain will make use of the best technique to catch whatever you want to catch.
If you’re looking for a longer adventure, you will also find lodging packages that include accommodations, breakfast, lunch, as well as world-class fishing.
Rods, reels, and terminal tackle are included in the price, and anything you catch will be cleaned and filleted afterward for your convenience. You will need to bring a valid fishing license or buy one on the boat separately. Make sure to also bring a pair of polarised sunglasses, and you’ll be good to go.
