Grande Ronde River Fishing Guides

The Grande Ronde River flows through a 3,000 ft deep canyon lined with basalt and Indian blanket hillsides. This moderate-gradient freestone river supports abundant wildlife and large population of steelhead and smallmouth bass. The arid climate of the canyon is warm in the summer months and generally much cooler in fall and spring. Winter steelhead fishing can have some freezing temperatures and a blanket of snow on the canyon floor. The Pacific Northwest steelhead start running up this Snake River tributary in October and run through month of February. The fish are smaller in size than our Clearwater Steelhead but the prize is the total experience you’ll get on this limited 9 mile float trip.

More Than Just Steelhead Fishing

The Grande Ronde also has excellent small-mouth fishing that in my opinion is a sleeper fishery. We start our guided bass trips June 1st and will fish the Ronde until August 1st, or until water flows become too low to float. We start our trips at the Boggan’s Oasis boat ramp and fish the 9 mile stretch to our take-out section, Shumaker grade. Our float trips include a hot BBQ lunch and a float trip experience you won’t forget. This is a limited access trip to a very special fishery so please make sure you book well in advance.

Grande Ronde Steelhead Fishing

Grande Ronde steelhead fishing take a back seat to our Clearwater steelhead trips but don’t let that detour you from fishing Pacific Northwest’s hidden jewel. This special little fishery has tons to offer besides the frisky steelhead that roam this freestone flowing river. We have 2 Grande Ronde River fishing guides that start fishing in October through the month of February that offer our great Stott’s service. We make our float in a 19 ft Willies drift boat that can accommodate up to 4 anglers for an incredible 9-mile float trip. We fish light line tackle and like to bobber dog and float fish along riffles and tail outs. Back-trolling divers and shrimp can be deadly on tail out fish as well! Grande Ronde trips start at the Boggan’s Oasis boat ramp, float 9 miles down to our Shumaker grade take out. This trip is very limited as it’s our super busy time of the year so make sure you book well in advance. Fish multiple days by adding the Clearwater or Snake to your package

Grande Ronde Smallmouth Bass Fishing

The Pacific Northwest has some great smallmouth bass fishing but none might be as adventurous and exciting as our Grande Ronde fishing trips. The Grande Ronde is small in stature, but the size of the river is no indication, quality of fish that roam the canyon’s riffles. We cast light line tackle, mainly jigs and grubs in seams of pool water and tail outs. It’s not uncommon to catch 100 bass in a day and land a 5 lb. fish. We start our guided bass trips June 1st and will fish the Ronde until August 1st, or until water flows become too low to float. The float starts at the Boggan’s Oasis boat ramp and we fish a 9 mile stretch to our take-out section, Shumaker grade. Our float trips include a hot BBQ lunch and a float trip experience you won’t forget. This is a limited access trip to a very special fishery so please make sure you book well in advance.
