Columbia River Walleye

Columbia River Walleye Fishing!

While we wait for the Columbia River Spring Chinook run to begin its migration over Bonneville Dam we decided to take advantage of the fantastic Walleye fishing the Columbia River has to offer. Today fishing below John Day Dam I pre fished for some upcoming trips this weekend and landed a total of 21 Walleye and numerous bass. Walleye fishing is absolutely on fire right now for these tasty fish. Most of the fish we caught today were 15-19 inches making them perfect for the frying pan. These Walleye are a ton of fun and with no limit on the Columbia River it’s a great opportunity to take home a bunch of tasty fish! We have openings this Sunday through next week fishing near John Day Dam due to moving many of our spring Chinook trips back a week. You won’t be disappointed by booking a Walleye trip with us!

As far as spring Chinook go we really think the first week of May is going to be a best crack at these fish above Bonneville. Again we have open dates and we will be fishing mostly in the John Day Dam area.

We will be back to chasing Spring Chinook this year on Idaho’s Clearwater River ( we work for Reel Time Fishing to run all our Clearwater trips). Don’t miss out on our favorite place to fish Springers!

Also don’t forget to get your summer and fall Chinook trips booked, as we have a great Summer and Spring ahead of us!

Portland Spring Chinook Report 4/6/17

Fishing is finally starting to pick up down here in the Portland area on both the Columbia River and the Willamette River. Today we had a good morning fishing the Willamette in the Portland area. There seems to be a decent number of fish around and fishing should be good the next few days.

Fishing is also starting to pick up on the Columbia River and we expect the main stem Columbia to fish well in the next few days. The Columbia is scheduled to close the 10th of April, but with low catch rates for the last few weeks we really expect to see the season extended a few more days.

Get in touch with us now if you want to get in on this Portland Spring Chinook Fishing. We have open seats the next few days. We will be fishing both the Columbia and Willamette until the Columbia closes and then will shift our focus to the Willamette until enough fish are moving upstream of Bonneville Dam and we shift our focus to the Columbia River Gorge.

We have plenty of open seats over the next month so get in on our favorite fisheries of the year!  Nothing beats a spring Chinook on the BBQ!  We will be following these fish all the way home to Idaho!

Hanford Reach Fall Salmon Fishing Report 2016

Fishing contines to be decent for Fall Chinook Salmon here on the Hanford Reach. We are still averaging 4-6 fish to the boat each day, but as every day passes more and more fish are in the area.  This fishery is on the cusp of breaking wide open. We continue to pick up most of our fish backtrolling plugs and eggs and downstream trolling superbaits and flashers. When the water is low we downstream troll and when the water is up or rising we backtroll. Our most productive superbaits have been the hot Tamale in the original series and also the rotten banana in the original series.

We still have a few open dates left this month, and the fist week of October. For September we have 2 seats open this coming Thursday, and a full boat open this Friday the 23rd. For the first week of October we have the 3rd and 4th open for full boats and one seat open on the 5th. To book your trip Book online now button on our homepage.

 

We also have plenty of open dates in October for Snake River Steelhead fishing, and also this year we will be working as an employee for Reel Time Fishing to offer Clearwater River, Idaho Steelhead Fishing trips. It’s going to be a great year on the Clearwater especially so give us a call at 208-861-0654 to talk to us about this great opportunity.

Hanford Reach Fall Salmon Fishing Report

It’s been a few days since we started our 2016 Hanford Reach Fall Salmon season and we wanted to give a quick update on the fishing so far.  Overall fishing has been decent, but we have had to earn our fish most days. We have been averaging 5-6 fish to the boat every day so far, and really the season is just getting started.

Today our fishing started with a double header, and we continued to have a decent bite for the next few hours. Like the past few days the bite slowed down a little toward noon.

Our best action has been downstream trolling flashers and superbaits stuffed with our tuna concoctions. This fishery is just getting warmed up. We should see some fantastic fishing over the next few weeks.

We have some open dates! I have 2 seats open on Monday the 19th, 2 seats open Thursday the 22nd, a full open boat on Friday the 23rd, and just had a cancellation for the 3rd – 5th of October.  These are absolutely prime dates. Give me a call at 208-861-0654 or click on the Book online button on our home page to get your trip lined up.
