Pacific Northwest Spring Fishing Trips

Outdoor enthusiasts know that, spring time is a great travel destination for a Pacific Northwest fishing trip. We fish on some incredible lakes, reservoirs and rivers. The snow-capped mountains create spring run-off that fill the lakes and rivers throughout Washington, Oregon, and Idaho. The beautiful weather and fishing vibe, excites and motivates people to chase fish! Our Pacific Northwest spring fishing trips 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 200 miles, chasing Springer Salmon, sturgeon, walleye and bass.

Spring Fishing Family Vacation

The Clearwater River, in Lewiston Idaho is our “home waters” offers some dynamite Springer fishing. We own 2 exclusive permits on the Clearwater that limits boat traffic. Potholes Reservoir heats up for some incredible walleye fishing and the bass, crappie, perch fishing is not too shabby either.

Spring Fishing for Trophy Walleye

The Mid-Columbia River around the Tri-Cities area is where you need to be if you’re chasing the next World Record Walleye. Spring sturgeon fishing is excellent on Snake River/Hells Canyon area and if you’re walleye fishing around the Tri Cities, combo that trip with keeper sturgeon. 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

The Columbia River could produce the next world record walleye and spring offers anglers the greatest opportunity. The State record, 20.9 pounds was caught in the same area we fish for our walleye. Our walleye fishing guides troll crankbaits early mornings in shallow water, more harness and blade baits throughout the day. Our guides have over 20 years, experience chasing trophy walleye on the Columbia.

Columbia River – McNary/John Day


The Columbia River has one of the world’s largest sturgeon population, right in our back yard. January 1st is opener for keeper sturgeon with slot of 43-54 inches. The water flows are great and weather starting to warm which triggers feeding fish. We fish both the Lake Wallula and Mcnary Pools down through the John Day. This is incredible fishing and only gets better when you combo with some walleye.

Springtime fishing on Potholes Reservoir means Ice Off and hungry walleye. This 28,000 – acre Reservoir in the middle of Eastern Washington has a variety of fishing options.

The Clearwater River is a permit – based fishery and we own 2 exclusive permits that allow our 6 full-time guides to operate our service on. These Springers are some of the same salmon we targeted at the Drano Lake, Wind River fishery. The Clearwater Springer season is set by the State of Idaho with a retention quota set. The season is subject to change. Mid-May typically is really good fishing, and all depends on when the fish arrive. There are special years that we have limited out all our fishing guests.
