Sturgeon & Bass Fishing Report

Snake River sturgeon and bass fishing has been excellent. Many large Sturgeon being caught on our trips with smallies and catfish added in throughout the day. With summer finally arriving this week be sure to get on our schedule to get out and enjoy the open air and water.

Our Grande Ronde floats are in full swing with great success. With a cold and wet spring the river is higher and colder than normal, which will allow us to oerate these trips later into July than usual. Its not uncommon to catch 18-22″ smallmouth bass on this trip! We have very limited seats on this trip so book before we are full.

Snake River Steelhead – Cast & Blast on the Grande Ronde

Steelhead – Yesterday our Snake River boat hooked 15 steelhead before noon, landing 8. On Saturday our Grande Ronde River boat hooked 12 Steelhead, landing 10. Fishing continues to be very good with favorable weather and river conditions. Fishing should continue to stay excellent for the rest of the month. We are now offering Cast & Blast on our Grande Ronde trips for Geese and Ducks. Limit is 4 Geese and 7 Ducks per hunter.

Turkey / Steelhead Package – Our last turkey hunt was a slam dunk. A limit of 4 birds were shot first thing in the morning of the hunt. This package is combined with one day of steelhead fishing on either the Grande Ronde or Snake River and one day of turkey hunting at our partner lodge in Anatone, WA. Limit is 2 turkey per hunter either sex. Turkey season closes on Dec 31st.
