Ringold Fishing Guides
COLUMBIA RIVER RINGOLD WASHINGTON SALMON FISHING GUIDES
If you’re looking for an outdoor adventure, then Ringold is calling your name!
In mid-September, our Columbia River Ringold Fishing Guides are targeting fall-run Chinook just upriver from Tri-Cities, Washington. This section of the Columbia River is a natural spawning area for these Salmon.
At the start of the season, we focus on covering water by fishing a method called “downhill or down river trolling,” meaning that we troll with the current. This allows us to fish more water in a faster time frame than other methods. This works well when fish are traveling.
As the season progresses we switch it up to back trolling egg and plugs, focusing on the spawning habitat where these fall Chinook are establishing dominance.
The Ringold area is home to the largest population of fall Chinook in the state of Washington and is a producer of large fish, often pushing or exceeding 50 pounds, with an average Chinook in the high teens to low 20s.

Our experienced guides make sure you land these big guys every time!
If you’re ready for a fishing adventure, Reel Time Fishing is just what you need. The water changes daily on the Columbia river near Ringold and these Chinook Salmon can be tough customers. But our knowledgeable guides know exactly where these big fish are hiding! Get your gear on, it’s time to prove who’s really the boss of this river.
There is something to be said about being in the desert yet fishing on the largest river in the Pacific Northwest. The Hanford Reach National Monument extends 40 miles on the left-hand side of the river, looking upstream, and is closed to the public. Our Upper Columbia Fishing Guides have seen trophy mule deer and elk roaming the banks. Rich with history, it is awe-inspiring to fish here.
