MARYHILL STATE PARK
Columbia River Maryhill State Park Walleye Fishing
The Columbia River near Maryhill State Park is home to some of the best Walleye fishing in the state of Washington. Our Maryhill State Park Fishing Guides target these Walleye below John Day Dam down to the mouth of the Deschutes River. Stating in late February and continuing until July you can find our Maryhill State Park Fishing Guides filling their live wells full of nice Walleye. Trolling worms on the bottom is the 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 boating numbers exceeding 70 fish per day. Give our Maryhill State Park Fishing Guides a call if you interested in catching great numbers of Walleye!
Columbia River Maryhill State Park Salmon Fishing
This section of the Columbia River sees two runs of salmon, Spring Chinook, and Fall Chinook. Depending on run timing you will find our Maryhill State Park Fishing Guides targeting Spring Salmon towards the end of April and into May. This is mostly an anchor fishery that occurs right out from the Maryhill State Park or just below John Day Dam. Our Maryhill State Park 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 Up River Brights as many call them. Fishing for these fish takes place near the mouth of the Deschutes River a few miles below Maryhill State Park. Trolling Brad’s super baits and spinners are key. Our Maryhill State Park Fishing Guides know exactly when and where to be targeting these fish and it’s not uncommon to have a boat limited within a few hours.
Columbia River Maryhill State Park Sturgeon Fishing
One of the last areas of the Columbia River to have yearly retention of Sturgeon occurs right out from the Maryhill State Park. Taking place early in the year, January until the quota is met or until it’s set closure in May, our Maryhill State Park Fishing Guides will put you onto Sturgeon ranging in size from a couple of feet to over 10 feet! Our guides have found that Sturgeon on this section of the Columbia fight harder than anywhere else!
