Snake River Steelhead Report

We had a fantastic day today on the Snake River at the entrance to Hell’s Canyon for hard fighting Steelhead.  Nothing quite like fishing for Steelhead in January with the temperature at close to 50 degrees! We landed a bunch of fish today and lost even more. We did very well side drifting both beads and shrimp. By the great number of fish around the Heller Bar area we expect the fishing to be good well into February.  We have openings the next few weeks, so give Dani in our office a call at 208-669-1569 and let’s get your trip booked.

Snake River Steelhead Report

D5200F6B-DFA1-4895-AFAE-1635441E8AC5Over the weekend we spent some time fishing in the Heller Bar area of the Snake River, and despite the low return numbers and the negative Steelhead press we did very well. On Saturday I had two customers hook over 12 Steelhead and land 6.  Numbers like that are great when we are talking Steelhead fishing. These are great fish that fight hard and have great meat quality. We have lots of open dates for the rest of November so if you are interested get in touch with us and we can get you set up on a great day of Steelhead fishing!

Snake River Steelhead Fishing Report

We had a great day of Steelhead fishing today in Hells Canyon. We fished out of the Heller Bar area. Today was a mixture of frustration and jubilation as the river went from decently fishable in the morning to pretty much puke brown by lunch, but by 1pm we found a little section of fishable water and that’s when things got interesting, before lunch we had only  one small Chinook and one wild Steelhead to the boat, but in the two hours between 1 and 3 we hooked a total of 10 steelhead landed 6 and kept 4.

Today was one of those days on the water were determination and perseverance paid off.  We notice some very subtle changes in river conditions and took advantage of an opportunity to put fish in the boat.

I think later this week and next week look great for the Snake River in the Heller Bar area as these storms and high water should bring a bunch of fresh fish into the area. We have openings Monday through Friday of next week and Fishing is going to be fantastic!  This fishery will continue to be very good all the way through November and December.

Snake River Steelhead and Salmon Fishing Report

We had another fantastic day yesterday fishing the Snake River out of Heller Bar for both Fall Chinook Salmon and Steelhead. Between salmon and Steelhead we landed 10 plus adult fish and numerous Chinook jacks, and ended up keeping 4 fish (two Chinook and 2 Steelhead.) All our fish were caught side drifting eggs and yarnies. Our best producing eggs have been Jones Sport Fishing Steelhead Cure in Natural and Orange, and our Salmon Cure in Red.

One thing we have noticed this season is that while the overall steelhead numbers might be down the average size of fish we have been catching this season has been way up. Normally most fish we catch on the Snake River  are in the 4-6 pound class, but this year we are seeing lots of fish in the 8-10 pound range.

We have openings over the next few weeks. If you have been thinking about a Snake River Steelhead trip now is the perfect time to get out in the water. Check out the Book Online Now button on our homepage to view available dates and book your trips.

Snake River Salmon and Steelhead Fishing Report

We had a great day today chasing salmon and Steelhead in the Heller Bar area of the Snake River. Although we mostly caught Fall Chinook today we did manage to find a few Steelhead. The river is absolutely loaded with fish now and should continue to fish fantastic for the next few weeks for salmon and Steelhead and well into February for Steelhead.  This is a very active fishery where we mostly side drift bait, so you are actually responsible for catching your own fish. We have quite a few openings for this fishery, so get with us now to book your trip. To view our open dates click on the Book online now button. On our home page. We fish most of our fall snake River dates out of Heller Bar.

Hell’s Canyon Steelhead Fishing

Here is a video shot earlier this month fishing the Snake River out of Heller Bar! We had a fantastic time chasing fish in the canyon all by our selves. We fish steelhead in this area starting the 10th of October – the end of February. We fill our fall season very quickly so if anyone is interested in fishing with us please book your trips early to ensure you get the best seats available.

A big thank you to the guys at http://northwestfishingreports.com for filming and editing the video.  If you are looking for current fishing reports for almost any area in the northwest you can most likely find them here.

2/15/16 Snake River Steelhead Report

The Snake River out of Heller Bar continues to fish well. Yesterday we had a great day on the river with only 2 customers going 6-10 on Steelhead and also landing a 3 foot sturgeon on steelhead gear.

We found most of our fish just upstream from Heller Bar as the Grand Ronde is flowing very high and muddy, and has made the Snake River downstream from the Grand Ronde muddy and not fishable.

We had almost all our bites drifting my Jones Sport Fishing shrimp cure in the bright red color in combination with a chartreuse cheater or corkie.

I am not really sure how much longer we can expect good fishing in this area, but I’m expecting it to fish well through at least this next weekend, we might se good fishing later on, but water conditions will dictate that. After that we often have great success switching over to catch and release trophy sturgeon fishing.
