Pacific Northwest Fall Fishing Trips

There’s something legendary about America’s Pacific Northwest that seems like everywhere you turn there are larger than life landscapes and historic locations. Getting caught up in the majesty of the northwest is easy, but anglers know that the region has world class fishing rivers, lakes and reservoirs. The Pacific Northwest fall fishing trips are some of the best in North America and the weather is incredible. Washington and Idaho provide Fall fishing opportunities on 3 of the Northwest’s premier sport fisheries for our guide service. The Columbia River fishing 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.

Incredible Fishing in Idaho

Snake River/Hells Canyon might have the some of the world’s largest sturgeon and fall steelhead & salmon 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 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

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.

Clearwater River


The Clearwater River in Lewiston Idaho has some of the best steelhead fishing in the World. Angler’s come from all over the world for Pacific Northwest fall fishing trips, chasing giant B-run steelhead on this special permit, based river. We own 2 exclusive permits that allow our team of 6 guides to fish the better part of 7 months. Incredible weather and bright, hard fighting B-run fish make the Clearwater a steelhead angler’s paradise. We use light line tackle and side drifting is the preferred method…. But our guides are all well versed in other techniques when needed.

Hanford Reach

Fall Chinook
September – October

Washington State residents are spoiled with great Salmon fishing throughout the Pacific Northwest, and Hanford Reach is at the forefront with great Salmon fishing. This part of the Columbia River is the last free flowing stretch that hosts one of the strongest salmon runs providing 2 months of incredible fishing. Our fishing guides camp out here in the Tri-cities area and fish 60 miles of river. The fall Chinook, better known, as Upriver Bright can weigh in the 50 lb. class. Every year the state changes the harvest quota, season open and closures as well. Some years they offer our anglers a 6 fish per day retention and on others, 2 fish can be the limit. We have 3 awesome fishing guides on Hanford Reach.

Columbia River – Lake Umatilla & Lake Wallula

September – November

The Columbia River fall fishing season is a great time to experience the rivers sport fishing haven. Fall 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. Fall walleye fishing can be a sleeper time to catch big fish feeding before they head to their winter resting grounds. We have 3 expert fishing guides available for large groups!

Columbia River – McNary & John Day

September – November

The Columbia River has one of the world’s largest sturgeon population, right in our back yard! Our fall sturgeon fishing is outstanding and combines nicely with our Columbia River/Lake Umatilla Walleye fishing. Fall sturgeon fishing is catch and release but… We’ve had some 30 fish days and many over-size sturgeon landed.

Potholes Reservoir

September – November

Potholes Reservoir is a super popular fishery for the locals but in my opinion, a hidden jewel for anglers wanting to catch warm water species. 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

September – November

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. Our angler’s love combining their sturgeon fishing trip with some Hells Canyon steelhead fishing. Fall fishing in the Lewiston/Clarkston area is second to none!

Buoy 10 – Astoria

King 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 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. We have 3 of our guides to run the Buoy 10 fishing trips and lodging is available in beautiful fishing town of Astoria Oregon.
