Keeper Sturgeon Fishing Report

Our keeper sturgeon season opened January 1st and so far fishing & catching has been good. The day of the opener captain Jack boated 3 keepers, 5 oversized, and a handful of shakers. This is a fairly short season, if taking home some great eating fish interests you don’t wait to book. This fishery takes place on the Columbia River near Rufus, OR.

We are looking for 1 to 3 anglers to join a single angler on January 17th 2022.

Hanford Reach Chinook Fishing Report

Check out our pictures from yesterday’s King Salmon trip for the next month we will be positioned at the Hanford Reach near Pasco WA catching these beautiful fish.  If we happen to limit early we can mix in some Walleye or catch and release Sturgeon

Hanford Reach Fall Chinook

Columbia River Hanford Reach – Join us for this popular fishery targeting Up River Brights (Fall Chinook). We are excited to find out that this year’s run is expected to come in well over forecast. The limit will be 6 fish with only 2 being adults. This is an improvement over the 1 fish limit that was set earlier this summer. Last year we combo’d walleye fishing with our trips and we plan on offering the same this year. The salmon are fun to catch and often run into the 20 and 30 pound range with many of the walleye hitting the upper 20 and lower 30 inch range.

Seats are limited so don’t wait too long to book. We fish out of Ringold, a short drive from Pasco, WA. We will have boats operating from September 15th till Mid October.
