JOHN DAY DAM WALLEYE FISHING
Looking for a place to land that perfect catch?
The Columbia River below John Day Dam is home to some of the best Walleye fishing in the state of Washington. Our guides target these Walleye below John Day Dam down to the mouth of the Deschutes River.
Starting in late February and continuing until July you can find our team of guides filling their live wells full of nice Walleye.
Trolling worms or crankbaits on the bottom is key as well as knowing where the hot spots are. For pure numbers of Walleye, this is the place to go.
Last Spring our boats were bosting numbers exceeding 70 fish per day. Give our John Day Dam fishing guides a call if you are interested in catching a great number of Walleye!
JOHN DAY DAM SALMON FISHING
The mighty Columbia River, home to a spectacular double-header of salmon runs.
This section of the Columbia River sees two runs of salmon, Spring Chinook, and Fall Chinook. Depending on the season and runs, you will find our guides targeting Spring Salmon towards the end of April and into May.
This is mostly anchor fishing that occurs right out from the Maryhill State Park or just below John Day Dam. Our John Day Dam fishing guides know exactly where to drop the anchor to set you up for success. These Spring Salmon are chrome bright and are some of the best-tasting salmon on the market.
In the Fall time, around the first of September, another Salmon fishery occurs. These are the Fall Chinook or Upriver Brights as many call them. Fishing for these fish takes place near the mouth of the Deschutes River a few miles below John Day Dam. Trolling Brad’s super baits and spinners are key. We know exactly when and where to be targeting these fish and it’s not uncommon to have a boat limited-out within a few hours.
