Columbia River Fishing Guide & Clearwater River Fishing Trips

As a Columbia River Fishing Guide Stott’s Fishing Adventures is a “unique” Pacific Northwest fishing outfitter. The foundation of our fishing brand was built upon experiences we gained from our years of pitching and coaching in Major League Baseball. Our First pitch was to draft the finest fishing guides that would hold our brand to the highest standard. Next was to define what would make us stand out amongst our peers and our closer was to deliver a service that our anglers would be proud of. Our guides fish year around and make fishing their full-time job.

We fish 5 prominent bodies of water in Idaho, Oregon and Washington and chase 6 different species of fish. As a Columbia River fishing guide we fish for salmon, steelhead, sturgeon, walleye and bass, spanning the Buoy 10 area down to the Mid-Columbia section of the Tri Cities.

The Leagues Best Fishing Adventure

Our signature fishery is the world class Clearwater river which provides us 7 months of trophy steelhead fishing along with fall and spring salmon. Our scenic and picturesque Hells Canyon area of the Snake River offers us a variety of options including giant sturgeon, salmon, steelhead and small-mouth bass.

Moses Lake and Potholes Reservoir offer year around fishing on this 27,000 acre fishery that has super walleye, bass, perch, crappie and blue-gill fishing. Grande Ronde fishing features a 9-mile float trip for bass and steelhead.

The Stottlemyre Family is extremely proud of our fishing team and hope you put your trust in them to provide the very best fishing experience.

Fishing the Clearwater, Columbia, Snake, Grande Ronde Rivers, Moses Lake and Potholes Reservoir

Our fishing guide service fishes year around on some the best sport fishing rivers lakes, and reservoirs in the country. Our team of guides travel to these fisheries that are close by and convenient for both the Pacific Northwest angler and our fly in guests. We’ve spent our entire lifetimes on these fisheries and access the best areas for angler’s success.

The Northwest definitely is a salmon and steelhead anglers paradise and have the Columbia, Snake, and Clearwater River to thank for that. Walleye fishing in Washington has become a popular destination for anglers that want a crack at the new World Record. Both the Columbia and Snake river systems provide world class sturgeon fishing.

Epic Fishing

If lakes and reservoirs are your style, we have some epic walleye and pan fishing on Moses Lake and Potholes Reservoir. We have a lot to brag about in this part of the world.

    Clearwater River Steelhead Fishing Guide

    The Clearwater River is a World Class steelhead fishery and is considered Stott’s “Signature Fishery”. Most famous for the B – Run fish which spend 2 to 3 years out in the salt, the Clearwater fish can grow to twenty-five pounds. This medium sized river is super popular around the Pacific Northwest but also draws anglers from all over the world.  We own two very, exclusive permits that allows our six full time guides to operate business on for the better part of ten months.

    2 Exclusive Permits – 6 Full Time Guides

    We are able to operate business on a sixty-mile stretch starting at the town of Orofino and down river to the confluence of the Clearwater and Snake. There are eight different boat ramps that are accessible to launch from with plenty of parking.

    Lodging is available in both Orofino and Lewiston as well local campgrounds for the camping enthusiast. We can accommodate any sized group from 2 anglers up to large corporate events. The steelhead season on the Clearwater opens September 1st for catch and release with the 15th of October kicking off keeper season. Our team fishes through the month of February with the river being fish-able most every day. Other steelhead fisheries struggle to stay open due to rain and flooding but the Clearwater rarely takes a day off.

    Highest Standard of Fishing

    Our team of guides work exclusively for Stott’s Fishing Adventures and hold our fishing brand to the highest standard. All our trips are operated exclusively by a Stott’s fishing guide. Our Clearwater River steelhead trips will include a hot BBQ lunch, bait & tackle, 8 hours fishing, and your catch cleaned and packaged at the end of the day. We teamed up with Gary Loomis Edge Rod company which allows our anglers to fish the finest fishing rods.

    Our Professional Guides and Staff

    The Stottlemyre family, well known for their pitching & coaching heritage in Major League Baseball have spent their lifetime in the Pacific Northwest. Chasing elk and deer in the Cascade Mountains was an off-season passion and fishing was the face of who they were. Not discriminating amongst species, it was steelhead and salmon that gave the baseball family their greatest thrills.

    The John Day, Columbia, Snake, Clearwater, Cowlitz, Yakima, Klickitat are just a few of the Northwest rivers they fished. Off days during the baseball season were few and far between but one thing was for certain, wetting a line was on the menu.

    Setting the Standards High

    Their passion and love for sport fishing has never wavered and in 2009, Mel Sr. and Mel Jr. created Stott’s Fishing Adventures. The father & son took some thoughts that they felt would make a difference and best represent their fishing brand. Hand picking the most knowledgeable, hard-working fishing guides to represent and hold the brand to the highest standard was at the forefront.

    The company now has six full time guides that work exclusively for Stott’s and make fishing their twelve-month job.

    We are proud of our team and very thankful to be able to share our brand with folks all over the world. Our guides work super hard for our clients and are committed to providing the best fishing experience possible.

    Good Fishing!
