Heller Bar Fishing Guides
Snake River Heller Bar Sturgeon Fishing
Our sturgeon fishing experience is the ultimate thrill-seeking escapade!
Sturgeon fishing near Heller Bar on the Snake River is an adventure you’ll never forget! These massive fish are found in Idaho and Washington and can reach up to 10 feet long. Even if you’re not lucky enough to hook one of the monster fish, reeling in a 6-8 footer is still an adrenaline rush for sure – the current will test your fighting skills, as these bad boys put up quite a battle.
Our guides have been hunting Sturgeon for years, so they know exactly where to find them. They can be fished year round but April, May, June, October and November are the peak months for Heller Bar Sturgeon fishing, so don’t miss out on the chance to tick off this epic challenge from your fishing bucket list!
SNAKE RIVER HELLER BAR SMALLMOUTH BASS
Need an intense fight? Look no further than Snake River Smallmouth Bass.
Pound for pound the Smallmouth Bass fight better than any species we target. When the bite is on it is not uncommon to catch over 100 of these feisty fish in a day. Most of our fish range from 10 to 18 inches with a few 20+ inches to be caught. In the spring our Snake River Heller Bar fishing guides will take you on a scenic trip into Hells Canyon targeting the soft water areas.
We usually find Smallmouth Bass hanging out along the shorelines in shrubs, rocky areas, or behind gravel bars. The easiest and most simple method works the best – casting soft plastics such as tubes, Senko’s, and curly tails into these pockets of water. Most of our anglers choose to combine this trip with Sturgeon fishing.
