Snake River Fishing Guides
Reel Time Fishing operates guided fishing trips on the Snake River out of four areas – Heller Bar, Lyons Ferry, Clarkston, and Little Goose Dam. The Heller Bar area is vastly different from the other three locations in that it is the free-flowing section of the Snake River. Lyons Ferry and Little Goose Dam are in what is called Lake Herbert, a pool created by one of the four lower Snake River dams. The Clarkston section is behind Lower Granite Dam. Even though these places give you a different feel for what water is capable of doing, they all provide unique fishing experiences with great success.
At Heller Bar, we primarily target Steelhead, Sturgeon, and Smallmouth Bass. With this being the free-flowing section of the river, our guides use side-drifting or back-trolling as the main method of taking for Steelhead, dropping bait in the deep back-eddies for Sturgeon, and flipping crankbaits or soft plastics in the current breaks for big smallmouth bass.
