Spring salmon or "springers" are considered to be some of the finest fighting and eating fish around. We focus our spring salmon fishing on the Columbia River, Wind River, Cowlitz River, and Drano Lake.
Catching big salmon is what the summer is for! We fish for Chinook and Sockeye salmon, depending on the annual WDFW seasons. The Columbia River near Wanapum is our preferred fishery.
Fall salmon have many names but we call them fun! Join us for fall salmon fishing on the Columbia River. We intercept these hard fighting fish at Drano Lake, the mouth of the Klickitat River, and Hanford Reach.
There's nothing like the thrill of hooking and catching a steelhead. We fish for steelhead on the Cowlitz River, Columbia River at Ringold, and on Washington's Drano Lake.
Walleye are excellent table fare and when the bite is good can make for a fun day on the water for angler's of all levels. We offer year round trips to hook into Columbia Gold.
If you're after keeper sturgeon (when open) or on the hunt for a catch and release river monster oversize sturgeon, we offer trips year round on the Columbia River.
We will fish for CoHo salmon this year on the Columbia River at the mouth of the Klickitat River, Drano Lake, and the Cowlitz River.
Fun salmon fishing trips, great for the whole family.
