Lyons Ferry Walleye Fishing
Written by Toby Wyatt

Pre-Spawn Time is when We Can Target these Bigger Fish
January and February offer some of the best walleye fishing of the year. The fish are in pre-spawn mode waking up from a winter slumber as temperatures in the river begin to rise they start to think about spawning.
This pre-spawn time is one of the only times throughout the year when we can target these bigger fish effectively using the jigging technique.
The Place to Be is Lyons Ferry on the Snake River
We take a lead head jig and we bounce it off the bottom with worms it’s a very satisfying way to catch a walleye as it is hands-on you feel the bite you set the hook it’s much more intense than just trolling where your rod is in a holder.
We are currently fishing for walleye in these two areas: Snake River at Lyons ferry at Starbuck and Lyons Ferry and Columbia River at John Day Dam.
For current up-to-date intel, please visit our Walley Fishing Report page.
Our rates for this trip are $275 per person. We provide poles, bait, and tackle and look forward to 8 hours of fishing.
