Stan Doll

Stan Doll — Founder

Born in Terrace, Stan started fishing as soon as he was able. He was one of those kids with an innate talent for fishing. Reading the water and finding fish became second nature to him. Fishing the rivers that were accessible by bike, Stan managed to catch hundreds of salmon from the Skeena, Kitsumkalum, and Copper rivers.

By the time Stan was 16 with his driver's license, the use of a power boat was most important to him; it was his gateway to all of the rivers on the lower Skeena. By the time he was a young man, Stan had beached a staggering number of Chinook salmon, the largest weighing a jaw-dropping 86 lbs. He also caught steelheads that would impress the most dedicated angler, including a 32-lb. trophy male.

Stan still has a profound love of fishing and the outdoors, as his two sons will tell you. At 60, he enjoys a well-deserved reputation as the premier Chinook guide in Terrace. With 36 years of fishing journals and 40 years of angling experience behind him, Stan is arguably the area's most productive steelhead and Coho fishing guide and most skilled boatman.

About Our Fishing Charters

For the true angler who needs access to fresh sea-run fish every month of the year, there may be no location equal to Terrace, British Columbia. Here, the fly fishing season never ends; it only changes. If you want to truly make the most of these plentiful waters, you need to try a charter with Stan Doll.

Stan's home is also the main lodge, and it offers an unprecedented number of angling options in the Terrace, Prince Rupert, and Kitimat regions. When it comes to the area's classified waters, no one even comes close to Stan. His unique permits cover many rivers, including the Copper (class one and two), Skeena (class two), Kalum, Gitnadoix, and Kwinamass.

Our standard charter packages are as good as they get. For the ultimate spring steelhead adventure, Stan can arrange custom helicopter trips into some of the most remote and tightly controlled systems in the province. See isolated areas like the Nass River Valley and the Ishkeenickh and Kincolith areas on the Copper River.


Spring and fall are mild here in Terrace, featuring cool temperatures and occasional rain. Temperatures are generally lower in the fall, but generally range from 35 to 65 degrees Fahrenheit. Summers are warm and sometimes even hot on sunny days, with rain frequently cooling things down.


There are many fisheries in the area that are available to visitors. Experience what it's like to fish on world-class public waters like the Kitimat or one of the several classified waters areas in the region. Ask your fishing guide or one of our representatives for more information about area fisheries.
