Dec 2 Fraser River Update

Celebrating 25th year in business

Fishing has been fair to good this past week, although most of our boats are now put away for the winter we are still operating fishing charters out of Mission and Harrison Hot Springs. Our Jet boat tours are focusing on Eagle Tours as we are having a record year for Harrison River Eagle migration. We are operating two twin engine jet boats with a capacity of 20 passengers so we can accommodate single passengers to larger corporate or family groups. We offer up to 3 charters a day, please call the office for times.

The weather for the next week looks great for both Fishing and Eagle watching. The cost for Eagle watching tours is $69 per person for 1 ½ hour tour, guided fishing charters are available in 4,6 or 8 hour increments. You can send us an e-mail or call the office directly at 604-316-9798 or call Vic at 604-671-3474.

December is a busy month for everyone and that includes our office staff. Tom, Tony, Frank and Vic are busy getting ready for the 2019 season which is also STS Guidings 25th year in business. It’s going to be a great year and we really look forward to celebrating this great achievement with our long time loyal clients and our new guests who come join us this season.

25th Anniversary Specials will be posted during the holidays so you can take advantage of some great savings if you plan to fish with us in 2019, We are also working on a Finns & Skins Fishing/Golf Tournament as well as a Sturgeon Derby for our 2019 guests, we will also be offering out some special 25th anniversary swag that should be very cool.
