GUIDED SMALLMOUTH BASS & Sturgeon FISHING

If you’re looking for outdoor fun in the sun, it’s hard to beat bass fishing!

The Snake and Grand Ronde Rivers are teeming with Smallmouth Bass, making this the ultimate fishing destination! Peak season starts in June, so grab your tackle box and hit the water, you’re sure to be reeling in over a hundred fish each day.

Most of them will clock around 8-15 inches but don’t worry if they seem small compared to their bigger brothers who can grow up to 24″!

Bass fishing is all about embracing beautiful Snake River life–the sunny temperatures, the crystal-clear waters, and those hard fighting Bass! To unlock your Smallmouth dreams come true join us on a guided journey to remember.

Here’s the spot to catch some big ones!

Our Sturgeon trips take place on the Snake River at Heller Bar. Here we fish the entrance to Hells Canyon, the deepest river gorge in North America. On a typical day you will see six or more fish on.

The Snake River is home to a healthy population of oversized sturgeon, meaning most of the fish you will catch are going to range six to 10+ feet! While springtime is the best, we continue to catch these prehistoric monsters throughout the summer and into fall. Check out our Sturgeon page to learn more.

Thanks for showing us a great time on the river. Travis got all four of us on great steelhead. One was a real hog! Would highly recommend this company.

Great time fishing with knowledgeable guide. Hot lunch was nice but while parked on the beach seen two fish caught. Maybe a sandwich while fishing instead.

Fished 2 days with Captain Pepe and his crew in Cabo. These guys were fantastic. Had us in Fish from the start. 13 Marlin and 5 big Mahi in two days. If you are going to fish in Cabo, do yourself a favor and book with Reel Time.

Our guide Jack worked hard to ensure we had the best opportunities to catch Salmon and Steelhead. His knowledge of all aspects of fishing made this a great opportunity for us and he gave us many opportunities to catch and land fish. We landed 5 steelhead and had several other opportunities, but were unable to connect on all of them. Overall, it was a great trip and a great day to be fishing with an expert in his field.
