TRIPS BY SPECIES

Reel Time Fishing is your premier fishing outfitter in the Pacific Northwest. We target six species of fish.



Steelhead are our bread and butter. We guide primarily on the Clearwater River and Snake River in Idaho. Steelhead fishing is by far our most popular fishery, extending out over seven months from September to March.

 

 

Salmon Fishing

Salmon are one of the most prized species of all fish in the Pacific Northwest. Reel Time Fishing operates a very diverse area for both Chinook and Coho Salmon. In the fall you will find our guides at the mouth of the Columbia River near Astoria, Oregon.

 

 

Sturgeon Fishing

Sturgeon are the largest freshwater fish in North America. We operate a few different trips for these gentle giants. The first is a catch and release only trip on the Snake River out of Clarkston, Washington. Here we fish Heller Bar at the entrance to Hells Canyon.

 

 

smallmouth bass

Smallmouth Bass fishing is quickly becoming one of our most popular excursions. What people love the most about bass fishing is it is most often consistent and pound for pound these fish fight the hardest.

 

 

Walleye

Walleye is one of our latest and greatest fisheries. Until about five years ago there wasn’t much for Walleye fishing on the Snake River. We have worked hard and have spent a lot of time exploring and developing the Lyons Ferry area into a premier Walleye fishery.

 

 

Kokanee

We exclusively fish Dworshak Reservoir for Kokanee. This reservoir, formed by Dworshak Dam on the North Fork of the Clearwater River, provides great catching of fish 10″ to 14″. This fishery picks up in March and continues into July and August.
