Pacific Northwest Summer Fishing Trips

Pacific Northwest Summer Fishing Trips mean great weather on some of the country’s Premier Rivers, Lakes, and Reservoir’s. Washington, Oregon and Idaho attract people from all over the world that come to experience the beauty of the Pacific Northwest and our rich fishing heritage. We are fortunate to have such wonderful fisheries that provide anglers many choices of species to target. Our fishing guide service is proud to have some of the hardest working guides on the water that are willing to travel to these incredible places to fish our loyal clients.

The Columbia River system might be the world’s best sportfishing destination and we cover about 300 miles, chasing salmon, steelhead, sturgeon, and walleye on Lake Roosevelt, Lake Wallula, Lake Umatilla, Buoy 10, Hanford Reach, John Day, Drano Lake, Wind River and John Day Pool. Snake River/Hells Canyon might have the some of the world’s largest sturgeon and the smallmouth fishing is incredible. Potholes Reservoir is our hidden gem that has incredible walleye fishing and the bass, crappie, perch. Bluegill fishing isn’t too shabby either.

We’ve broken down our fishing by seasons to inform our anglers when the best time to fish is, on their favorite body of water. Fishing changes with each season, and our guide service promises to keep things fresh with those changes.

Buoy 10, Grande Ronde, Snake River, Hells Canyon

Columbia River – Buoy 10 – Astoria

Chinook Salmon
August – September

Buoy 10 in Astoria Oregon is one of sport fishing’s largest salmon fisheries in the continent, returning over a million Kings & Coho to the mouth of the Columbia River. This legendary fishery kicks out 30-40 lb. Kings that are dime chrome and full of sea lice. Our Buoy 10 fishing guides make the town of Astoria home for 5 weeks and then head upriver for our Hanford Reach “Upriver Bright” fishing. The town of Astoria has something to offer the entire family

Columbia River – Drano Lake & Wind River

Chinook Salmon
June – July

The Columbia River Springers are some of the best tasting salmon in the World. This part of the country is without question the biggest attraction for Springer Salmon fishing. Fish start piling in here in March for this incredible fishery and trolling is the game. We have 3 guides available and lodging is near by The Dalles, Oregon.

Columbia River – McNary & John Day


The Columbia River has one of the world’s largest sturgeon population, right in our back yard! Our summer sturgeon fishing is outstanding and combines nicely with our Columbia River/Lake Umatilla Walleye fishing. Summer sturgeon fishing is catch and release but… We’ve had some 30 fish days and many over-size sturgeon landed. We don’t remove sturgeon from the water, but we do love swimming with them for a pic!

Columbia River – Wallula & Umatilla


The Columbia River is a great time for families to experience the rivers sport fishing haven. Summertime offers walleye anglers opportunities at some big number days and there and still good chances at some big fish. The State record, 20.9 pounds was caught in the same river section in which we operate our trips. Summer walleye fishing can be angler’s favorite season, casting blade baits and trolling cranks & spoons. This makes for a perfect family vacation destination. We have 3 expert guides available for large groups!

Grande Ronde – Boggan’s Oasis

June – August

Our Grande Ronde smallmouth bass fishing trips are super popular and very limited. The 9-mile drift boat float trip begins at the Boggan’s Oasis boat launch and end down at the Shumaker Grade. Experience some World Class bass fishing, catching 100 bass days in a remote part of the Washington/Idaho border. River flows may fluctuate and trips subject to change. June for sure has spectacular fishing!

Lake Roosevelt – Kettle Falls


Lake Roosevelt started a keeper season back in 2017 after a successful hatchery program that both British Columbia and Washington State started. The fishery is now thriving with sturgeon and anglers can harvest 2 fish per year. The state also allows anglers to catch and release fish once they’ve filled their tag. Slot limit is 43 to 53 inches, tip to forks. Lodge in the cool little town of Kettle Falls and combine your keeper sturgeon with some tasty walleye fillets!

Potholes Reservoir

Walleye – Bass – Panfish

Potholes Reservoir is a super popular fishery for the locals but in my opinion, a hidden jewel that is perfect for a Family vacation. Our Potholes Reservoir fishing guides never get tired of catching walleye, perch, bass, bluegill, and crappie on the 28,000 acres reservoir in Eastern Washington. There is nearby lodging, restaurants, RV camping and a few local taverns. We recommend doing multiple day trips for our fly in guests.

Snake River – Hells Canyon & Heller Bay


The Hells Canyon sturgeon are some of the biggest in the world! Enjoy the beauty of the shale cliffs and wildlife that roam in the canyon, while you tangle with the World’s largest freshwater fish. Heller Bar is the gate way to the deepest gorge in North America. Combine Hells Canyon sturgeon with some frisky small-mouth bass fishing and check it off the bucket list!
