Brett’s Guide Service is owned and operated by full time professional guide Brett Basim. 

Brett has been a professional fishing guide in Washington State since 1990.  Based just outside Seattle, Brett offers fully furnished guided fishing for Steelhead, Salmon, Sturgeon, Kokanee, Dolly Varden, and Sockeye. 

Several premier rivers are less than an hour away from Seattle.  Brett works in partnership with select professional fishing guides, offering fishing charters for corporate and large groups, ensuring your angling needs are met. 

You will fish out of a new 23 ½ foot Alumaweld Super Vee Pro sled, Powered by a 200hp Mercury.  Heated on cold days, this sled is exceptional.  There is plenty of room for up to six anglers!

All of your fishing gear is provided.  Brett uses G-Loomis rods, Pflueger spinning reels and Abu Garcia levelwind reels.  Brett provides the best tackle, bait and lures to hook into your fish.  All you need is a fishing license, a few personal essentials and a positive attitude.

Brett also provides scenic trips on the Wild & Scenic Skagit River for outdoor photographers, videographers, and those who love to view the beautiful scenery.  In late fall and winter, you can view the largest wintering population of Bald Eagles in the United States, which draws visitors from around the world.  As you sit in the warmth of a heated sled, you will be in a position to view these magnificent raptors, as they roost in the trees lining the banks and feed on fish on the gravel bars.
