Smallmouth Bass

Small Mouth Bass Fishing on the Snake River
Idaho, Oregon & Washington State

Smallmouth Bass Fishing

There are plenty of Smallmouth Bass to catch in the Snake River Canyon.  Smallmouth fishing peaks around June and continues into early September.  It is not uncommon to catch over 100 fish a day.  Most fish average around 8” to 15” in size with the occasional 15” to 24” fish chomping on your lure.  The best thing about bass fishing is the weather.  The weather in the spring and summer can be beautiful with temperatures ranging from 80 to 100 degrees.  Along with bass you will catch some very nice Rainbow Trout.

Mother's Day Bass Catch

Two trips are offered for bass and trout depending on water flows and the time of year.  The first is your standard Jet boat trip working the pockets and shoreline of the Snake River.  The second is a drift boat trip down the Grande Ronde.

Both trips offer excellent opportunities to hook fish!
