Snake River Walleye Fishing Report

Snake River Walleye – Early reports tell us that our Snake & Columbia River walleye fisheries are starting to kick off. We have seen a few pictures coming out of the Snake River of nice 4 to 10 pound fish. As the water continues to warm the catching will continue to increase. We are booking trips now through the summer.

Astoria Oregon Fishing Report

Fall chinook fishing has been good at our Buoy 10 fishery on the Columbia River. We will be moving upriver to the mouth of the Deschutes River the first week of September. We are currently looking to fill September 1, 2 and 5. A lot of big fish this year!

We are also filling fast for out Hanford Reach fishery. Get in touch with us to get in on this very popular trip. Mid-sept to early Oct.

Snake River Steelhead Fishing is OPEN!!

Clarifications on the 2019 / 2020 Steelhead season:

After many misleading media headlines we are here to clarify what is closed, open, limits, etc. Due to low B-Run counts a difficult decision was made to close the Clearwater basin to all steelhead fishing for the entire season. The Clearwater is currently open for Chinook and Coho retention until Oct. 13th.

The SNAKE RIVER IS OPEN FOR STEELHEAD RETENTION and will be all season. We will be moving all of our trips to the Heller Bar area. Fishing has been good the past week with boat catches ranging anywhere from 8 to 15 steelhead. Salmon retention will also be open until Oct 31st. The Snake River provides for a similar fishing experience. We side drift and backtroll just as we do on the Clearwater. The fish are scrappy and awesome to catch. We are also able to combo with catch and release Sturgeon, or just throw some Sturgeon lines out at lunch. The scenery is ten-fold to the Clearwater, as we fish the entrance to Hells Canyon. Where we fish is road-less surrounded by towering mountains with sheep, elk, and monster mule deer. The atmosphere is what makes this trip. The limit here is one steelhead ANY SIZE and 6 hatchery adult salmon (salmon closes oct 31).

As always our trips come with a hot lunch and all gear provided.
