Stevenson Washington Fishing Charters

 

Voted Best Fishing Guides in Stevenson Washington

We provide everything you need for a successful day on the water.

The town of Stevenson, Washington lies along the banks of the Columbia River inside what is known as the Columbia River Gorge. Here you will find a small fishing town that is home to some of the best salmon fishing in the state. Our guides target two bodies of water here for spring chinook in April and May. The first is the Wind River, this area provides the ability to use a wide range of techniques including backtrolling or forward trolling plugs, herring, super baits, or prawns.

Many Chinook Salmon migrating up the Columbia River are heading for the Wind River hatchery, so not only do you get traveling fish continuing up the Columbia, you also get fish stopping here as this is their final stop before going into the hatchery.

 Here you can find plenty of succulent Chinook salmon.

A few miles upstream from the mouth of the Wind River is the famous Drano Lake. Drano has been a popular salmon fishery for decades as it serves as a stopping point for both travelling salmon as well as salmon destined for the Little White Salmon Hatchery. During the peak of the spring Chinook run, many anglers opt for this fishery because it funnels fish into a relatively small area, which can make them easier to target.

Drano Lake has, in the past, seen more liberal limits and fishing restrictions than most other areas on the Columbia River. This area can get very congested, so we suggest booking a guide to take on the stress of navigating this popular fishery.

Thanks for showing us a great time on the river. Travis got all four of us on great steelhead. One was a real hog! Would highly recommend this company.

Great time fishing with knowledgeable guide. Hot lunch was nice but while parked on the beach seen two fish caught. Maybe a sandwich while fishing instead.

Fished 2 days with Captain Pepe and his crew in Cabo. These guys were fantastic. Had us in Fish from the start. 13 Marlin and 5 big Mahi in two days. If you are going to fish in Cabo, do yourself a favor and book with Reel Time.

Our guide Jack worked hard to ensure we had the best opportunities to catch Salmon and Steelhead. His knowledge of all aspects of fishing made this a great opportunity for us and he gave us many opportunities to catch and land fish. We landed 5 steelhead and had several other opportunities, but were unable to connect on all of them. Overall, it was a great trip and a great day to be fishing with an expert in his field.
