Lewiston Idaho Guided Fishing Trips

Get in on this ultimate outdoor adventure.

Lewiston Idaho residents can consider themselves lucky – they get to enjoy year-round access to the Clearwater River, an angler’s paradise! But those that live outside of Lewiston, don’t have to miss out on fun fishing on the Clearwater River. Reel Time Fishing gives you a chance to experience all its wonders with their incredible guided expeditions.

Revered around the world for its big catches of Steelhead and Salmon that can weight up to 20 pounds. The Clearwater has earned its reputation as one of Earth’s premier fishing waterways.

At Reel Time Fishing we have top rated Lewiston Idaho Fishing Guides that will take you on an epic fishing journey, covering 40 miles up and down this shallow river with rocky structures and gravel bars. Also, don’t be surprised if our experienced Idaho guides have your group catching 20 Steelheads or more per day – because for here, that’s just par for the course.

Clearwater River is a nature lover’s paradise, where you can see Bald Eagles soaring high above or Elk and Deer roaming on the river’s edge. You might even spot the playful river otter if you’re lucky. And that doesn’t even begin to scratch the surface of what this scenic river has in store. Book your trip today, you won’t be disappointed.

This was our first time out with Reel Time Fishing, guide Travis Wendt was an excellent guide/host/cook! We booked a trip on Dworshak Res. for bass fishing and were very successful. It wasn't just the fish that made the trip successful it was the total package! We had great company on the boat, including Denali the boat host. All was so perfect that we have already scheduled another trip with Reel Time and Travis. Thanks for the experience and look forward to the next trip out. Scott & Bonnie Willis

Travis made room for my brother and I after our original guide service had boat problems. We had an amazing experience with him. Our boat caught 11 steelhead with 4 of them being keepers. The next trip will be with Reel Time Fishing.

I had the best time steelhead fishing on the Clearwater with Captain Jim from Reel Time Fishing. He put us on the fish and we were able to bring in all that we caught. He was very professional and accommodating in every way. He made us a great hot lunch each day. We back trolled and side drifted and had so much fun bringing in all those beautiful fish. We stayed at the Lenore Lodge which was 3 mins from the launch. The lodge had 10 beds and an awesome game room. It was very clean and comfortable. I do suggest Reel Time Fishing for an epic trip and I will definitely return for more fishing.
