STS Guiding Service - Chilliwack

STS Guiding Service is a not your regular one-man operation. Founded by Captain Vic Carrao in 1994, it consists of a fleet of more than 20 boats and guides. With their history and knowledge, they are certainly the largest operator in the region.

Your boat will be one of the numerous 22-25’ Hells Canyon Marine and Custom Weld jet boats that make up Captain Vic’s fleet. Equipped with the necessary safety and navigation gear, they have plenty of space for up to four prospective anglers. The boats are custom built and specifically made with running waters as shallow as 6’’ in mind, but are also reliable in rougher conditions as well.

Depending on your wants and needs, Captain Vic can offer freshwater and saltwater packages. Among the fish species you will encounter during these trips are Pacific Salmon (all five species), Snapper, Halibut, Trout, Sturgeon, and others. Gear for fly fishing is also included in the price, and a good time is guaranteed no matter what your preferred technique is. From trolling to jigging and plunking, Captain Vic’s crew will make sure you’re using the best tools for the job.

If you’re on the lookout for something longer than a regular fishing trip, you can also opt for one of the lodging packages that include accommodations, breakfast, lunch, as well as great fishing.

The price of the trip includes rods, reels, and terminal tackle. Anything you catch during the trip will be cleaned and filleted for your convenience once you return. You will need to bring a valid fishing license or buy one on the boat separately.
