Hells Canyon Fishing Adventure

 

HELLS CANYON Guided STEELHEAD Fishing Trip

We hit the scenic back country of Idaho, our fishing rods in hand and ready to catch some awesome Steelhead!

Idaho’s backcountry offers the perfect playground for fishing fanatics, especially along Hells Canyon on the Snake River. Steelhead season is our special time of year; it’s a unique Rainbow Trout that travels between ocean and freshwater habitats in search of its ideal spawning grounds.

If you’re up for a real battle, Hells Canyon Steelhead don’t disappoint; these hard-fighting fish put on an incredible show and are sure to give your arms (and patience) a workout. Not only that, but steelies at this location in the river can get huge, we’ve even seen some massive 10+ pounders! All season long our highly experienced local guides will be there to guide you every step of the way.

Looking to land the legendary Steelhead? Our Hells Canyon Fishing Guides make it easy – no learning curve necessary! You’ll get all your angling gear, a tasty shore lunch, and have an expert at hand ready to fillet up that prize catch. So, drop those lines for one of anglers’ most sought-after game fish!

SNAKE RIVER HELLS CANYON STURGEON

Craving an adventure? Look no further than a fun-filled day of sturgeon fishing.

If you’re in the mood for a real challenge, then our Hells Canyon Sturgeon fishery is calling your name. These gargantuan freshwater fish – some of which can reach 10 feet or more! – are absolutely mammoth and provide an incredible battle when hooked. They don’t call them ‘the largest’ of their kind in North America for nothing!

Our experienced Hells Canyon guides know the ins and outs – from where to find these fish, to which months are prime for hooking these big boys. April through June or October & November can be your ticket in an epic battle you won’t soon forget – so grab yourself some buddies and jump aboard with us – let’s get those monsters on the beautiful Snake River.

 

 

SNAKE RIVER HELLS CANYON SMALLMOUTH BASS

Fury in a tiny package.

The Smallmouth Bass near Heller Bar will give you one heck of a fight! With our Heller Bar guided trips, your springtime excursion is sure to be brimming with activity. We guarantee an action-packed day where it’s not uncommon for 100+ feisty fish between 10-18 inches long (or even bigger!) to cross your line.

If you’re looking to reel in some bass and sturgeon, the shorelines are sure to be your new favorite spot. Cast soft plastics like tubes, senkos, or curly tails into pockets of water near rocky areas and shrubs – simple yet effective! Don’t forget that this combo can create a truly amazing fishing experience (not even mentioning how rewarding it’ll feel when you bring home those prized catches).

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.
