What’s up with STS ?

As most of you know in 2015 STS Guiding Service was purchased by BCSFG ( BC Sport Fishing Group ) based out of Harrison/Chilliwack area. Even though the two businesses work closely together they are still very different in many ways. STS focuses mostly on lower Fraser between Mission and Chilliwack & Fraser Canyon while BCSFG focuses on Middle Fraser between Chilliwack and Hope as well as the Harrison area. BCSFG also has a Jet Boat Tour division as well as Kayak Tours and E-bike rentals with an office in the Harrison Resort Hotel.


  • We have boats moored and operate from Mission Marina, Harrison Resort Hotel, Chilliwack Island 22, Stevenston Marine and Hope Rupert Street.
  • We offer discounted accommodation options from Harrison Resort Hotel, Mission Best Western, Chilliwack’s Coast Hotel & Private group lodging.
  • We operate the largest fleet of Jet Boats & Guides on the Fraser River.
  • We have over 50 years of experience working in the Guided Fishing Industry
  • We work closely with the Fraser River Sturgeon Conservation Society on Sturgeon Conservation Issues.
  • We are the only guide outfitter permitted to Operate from Mission Harbour & Harrison Resort Hotel.
  • We offer rental/use of our 75person conference room on the Fraser River located at Mission Marina.
  • We do ½ a dozen or more large Corporate events each year from our exclusive Mission Harbour Location.

As you can see, the sale of STS to BCSFG has provided us the opportunity to grow, offer our past, present and future guests more options for Adventure, strengthen our team of guides and run some of the best equipment on the Fraser River. The future is bright and we look forward to serving you for another 29 years.

Last but not least, we will be offering once again Christmas Gift Certificates in any denomination, you can purchase any salmon or sturgeon day trip, overnight package or any dollar amount. These certificates have no expiry date and can be used at any time.

Thanks again for choosing to fish with STS, we hope you and your family have a great holiday, Merry Christmas and Happy New Year from all of us at STS.
