LITTLE GOOSE DAM



Snake River Little Goose Dam Walleye Fishing Guides

Walleye fishing is offered year-round, early spring through late summer is prime. Our Little Goose Dam Walleye Fishing Guides operate boats on the Snake River for this fishery near the Little Goose Dam. The Little Goose Dam section of the Snake River is home to Walleye ranging in size from 1 to 17 pounds. Walleye spawn in the Spring and Fall and can be found in shallow flats during that time, in summer they can be found in deeper water near points of sharp ledges and bars. These fish have better vision under low light conditions, making early mornings or late evenings best for fishing, overcast skies, or during windy conditions where sunlight through the water column is obscured. Let our Snake River Little Goose Dam Walleye Fishing Guides take you to the hot spots and put you on some of the largest Walleye in the country.

Our guides use various techniques to target Walleye. During cold water conditions in the winter and early spring, we will vertical jig using one-ounce jig heads with hootchies and worms. When the water begins to warm, the fish will begin to move into shallower water where trolling deep-diving crankbaits is the key to success. As the season progresses we then follow the fish back into the deep water by trolling worms with bottom bouncers. This method produces the best during warm water conditions. Catching Walleye can be challenging as they tend to move a lot and change what they are wanting to eat. Book a trip with us to take the hassle out of the learning curve.

Snake River Little Goose Dam Salmon Fishing Guides

In May our Snake River Little Goose Dam Fishing Guides are targeting Spring Chinook Salmon directly below the Little Goose Dam. This is a unique fishery as we anchor inside of a back eddy created by Little Goose Dam. The fish get trapped in the back eddy and during the peak of the run, we position the boat on top of, at times, 10,000 or more Chinook Salmon. As you can imagine this provides for excellent fishing on most days our clients limit out by mid morning and go home a Salmon or two that is the best table fare among its species. Our Snake River Little Goose Salmon Fishing Guides take the upper hand in this fishery because it is a very small hole that is difficult to anchor in. Our guides are up early claiming the hot spot to provide the best fishing experience for our clients.
