Rivers We Fish
We live in the part of the world that has some of the finest fisheries to offer to our clients. Sport Fishing in our Northwest rivers for Salmon, Steelhead, Sturgeon, Smallmouth Bass, and Walleye are second to none. Our Clearwater River (Our home river) in Lewiston Idaho provides us with 10 months of trophy fishing. The Snake River in Hells Canyon, also being local adds nicely to our lineup. Our guides live year around on the these two Northwest favorites but can also be seen running guiding on the Columbia, Buoy 10, Grande Ronde, Hanford Reach, and soon some of the tributaries of the Columbia.
We've broken down each one of the fisheries that we operate business on to further accommodate your group. Feel free to search through our Fishing Tab to find out more about targeting specific species. We're committed to providing you with options that will facilitate your group and specific requests. Thanks for choosing Stott's as your Northwest Fishing Outfitter.
Clearwater River - Fishing Trips
The Clearwater River is one of the top sport fishing rivers in the lower 48 and gives us 10 months of trophy fishing. This is our bread and butter fishery, as our team will fish for Salmon and Steelhead under our exclusive Clearwater permit. We concentrate our efforts seasonally in this 50-mile stretch from the confluence of the Snake, Clearwater River in Lewiston Idaho to the town of Orofino Idaho. Our Clearwater River is sanctioned by the Idaho Outfitters and guide board that limits the amount of outfitters licensed to operate business on this water and we own one of these special permits. If you’re looking for a Clearwater River adventure give us a call.
Columbia River Fishing Trips
The Columbia River is perhaps the greatest sport fishing river in the world. Starting point in Astoria Oregon traveling down river to the Hanford Reach in Washington State this river provides our guides year around fishing for salmon, steelhead, sturgeon, walleye, and bass. Our guides are committed to offering to our clients a very diverse lineup of waters to fish throughout the Northwest. The Columbia River provides us with many more options to our year around fishing service.
Snake River Fishing Trips
The Snake River in the Hells Canyon area is one of North Americas best sport fishing locations. Providing such a diversified array of fishing options for anglers is no joke. The river getting it’s name honestly from a winding snake has many characteristics to it’s body. Deep holes that occupy prehistoric sturgeon can also host steelhead. The river has many classic runs with shallow riffles followed by tail outs where both small mouth bass and steelhead can be found. Large eddies host an abundance of catfish and at times can find an iron head resting.
Grande Ronde River Fishing
The Grande Ronde River is a tributary of the Snake River in Hells Canyon. This smaller river meanders 182 miles through the mountains and valleys of Oregon and Washington. The riverbanks and surrounding mountains hosts an abundance of wildlife throughout the seven mile float. Experience this adventure in a drift boat floating down the lower section of this North West beauty. Very scenic and home to resident smallmouth bass and a winter steelhead run makes this float a dream.
