Clearwater River Steelhead Fishing Report

We had another good day today on Idaho’s Clearwater River. The water was up today and we had to grind it out but we still went 6-10 and got into some great fish. It’s looking like it will be a great February. This water should calm down by mid week and fishing will be on fire. We still have openings so get in touch with us to book your trips. We work as employees of Reel Time Fishing for all Clearwater trips. For more information on our Clearwater River Steelhead Trips click Here.

Clearwater River Steelhead Fishing Report

We had another great day on Idaho’s Clearwater River. Today was a little slower but the 2 guys I had still managed to land 4 Steelhead and hook a few others. We had some difficult conditions to fish today with rising water, but still had a great day. We have plenty of openings for February and after this water calms down a bit fishing will again be fantastic. All our Clearwater trips are done as employees of Reel Time Fishing.

Snake River Keeps Kicking out Steelhead

We had another great day fishing the Snake River out of Heller Bar. We ended our day 9-11 and kept 5 nice fish. Fishing the Snake for Steelhead continues to be a great option and we really think it’s going to fish great well into February!  Again today our key was fishing coon shrimp in our concoction. This mix just keeps on kicking out fish!  We have openings over the next few weeks so get in on this while the getting is good!  Ohh and did I mention that we had the river all to ourselves?!

Clearwater River Steelhead Report

Despite the low numbers of returning steelhead to the Clearwater River we have been experiencing some very good fishing. When fishing on the Clearwater we work as employees for Reel Time Fishing. Our boats have been averaging 8-10 fish landed per day. We have been having most of our success side drifting pegged beads and yarn and egg combinations.  One of the biggest keys to putting lots of fish in the boat during lean years is to cover lots of water. This is a major advantage of fishing out of a power boat as we can cover 15+ miles or river easily in a day.  We have plenty of openings during January and February so don’t hesitate to get in touch with us to get in on the action.

Also now is the time to get your Columbia River Salmon, Sturgeon, and Walleye Trips Booked. We will be getting after the Walleye full time starting in March. If you have specific dates you want to fish it’s best to get them booked early!

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!

Clearwater River Steelhead Fishing Report 2/6/17

Idaho’s Clearwater River Steelhead Report — Fishing on Idaho’s Clearwater River has been absolutely fantastic this past week. February is traditionally the peak of our Spring/ Winter Steelhead season and this past week started with a bang! We work for Reel Time Fishing to run all our Clearwater River Trips, and in fact one on the other Reel Time boats had a 30+ fish day this past week.

We are almost exclusively side drifting now as both yarn/eggs and pegged beads have been our go to setups. We have lots of openings over the next month including this upcoming weekend. We are forecast to have high temps reach almost 50 degrees this week with some sun, so if winter has you cooped up get in touch with us and let’s get out on the water.

Clearwater River Steelhead Fishing 1/23/17

Fishing this past week on Idaho’s Clearwater River was fantastic. On the Clearwater we fish for Idaho outfitter Reel Time Fishing. With the warmer weather of the week (temps in the low 40’s and upper 30’s with some sunshine) we saw much more consistent fishing.  My boat had double digit hook ups everyday we were out, and even had two customers limit out on Friday.  Speaking of Friday’s customers, they were January’s winner of our monthly free trip giveaway!  If you want a chance at winning a free trip with us make sure you click the following link Win a Free Trip!

Again we had our best success side drifting with both bait and pegged beads, with a 70% to 30% favoring the beads.

All of the fishing effort is still takeoff place below the North Fork, as the upper river is still very impacted by ice.

Now through the end of February is our absolute favorite time to fish the Clearwater and we have quite a few openings over the next 6 weeks.

Give us a call or text for availability at 208-861-0654, but all final booking will go through Reel Time Fishing.
