Just wanted to give a brief testimonial for my longtime friend Shawn. He is a professional salmon and steelhead fishing guide from the pnw. And when I say professional its exactly what I mean. All of his gear from his boats to the top of the line rods and reels he has are always ready to go. I have had many great trips with him and have limited out more times than not. I have never had a bad trip out with this guy. If you want to go catch some of the best tasting salmon of the year book now with Shawn for spring chinook before he’s booked!!!

Best guide around in all aspects, this is one of our favorite fishing trips not only for the fish but because Shawn has a great personality and makes sure you’re well taken care of. My husband and I try to make at least 1 trip with STS a year! Highly recommend Shawn to anyone looking for a great fishing trip!

2nd trip with Shawn, it was a very tough day, fish hard to find. Not wanting to bite on much. Shawn hunted for the fish and we limited out. Great job!!! Thank you for your persistence and determination. We had a great day laughed and enjoyed ourselves . Another epic day. We’ll book another trip!!!

Shawn is one of the best guides I have fished with. He works very hard to find fish. He is very knowledgeable and will not waste your time if the fishing is slow. He is also very professional with a laid back personality and great with younger kids. Fished with him twice. I have fished with many different guides all over the US. Can’t go wrong fishing with him.

Great fishing trip today with Shawn! Shawn is an awesome guide and gives his all to get you on the fish. We boated 7 Spring Run Chinooks for 4 fishermen! Thanks!

We had the pleasure of both spring and fall fishing with Shawn this year. He did a awesome job getting us on the fish and putting them in the boat. We where always one of the top boats out there both days. I would highly recommend Shawn and sts if your looking for a great trip.

Thank you Shawn for the most successful spring Chinook fishing I can remember. My son Dean had “one of the best days of his life!” If you’re looking for a guide….this is who you need to call.

STS fishes year around targeting Salmon, Steelhead, Walleye and Sturgeon on the Columbia River and tributaries in both Washington and Oregon. Often times following the current species migration as they move from the ocean into the fresh water. This is done out of a top notch 25′ Willie Raptor open sled, which fishes up to 6 people very comfortably. The Wille Raptor is completely setup with state of the art equipment to help us get on the fish. If we are not fishing out of the open sled, then we will be fishing smaller tributaries for Fall Chinook Salmon and Winter Steelhead using a fully loaded 18’ Clackacraft Clackamax drift boat, which fishes up to 3 people with ease.
