Steelhead Fishing In The Pacific Northwest
Steelhead fishing in the Pacific northwest is world class. Our fishing guides are fortunate to fish 2 of the premier steelhead fisheries in the Pacific northwest. Without saying, these fisheries attracts anglers from all over the world. The Clearwater River, our signature fishery is home to our “Big” B-run steelhead and provide us 7 months of trophy fishing. The river is a permit based fishery and we own 2 exclusive permits which means limited boat traffic and lots of fish. Right around the corner is our scenic Hells Canyon Snake River which offers some great steelhead fishing in the beautiful Hells Canyon area. These A Run fish are smaller in stature to the Clearwater B Run fish but very frisky and abundant. We target both fisheries from our custom jet boats and specialize in light line tackle.
How We Fish Steelheads
Stott’s steelhead fishing guides use different techniques depending on water conditions and the time of year, but our most effective method is side drifting. All our Captains are coast guard approved, licensed, bonded and certified in First Aid Training. We partnered with Gary Loomis Edge Rod Company which means our anglers fish the world’s finest fishing rods. All of our steelhead adventures include bait & tackle, hot BBQ lunch, beverages and at least 8 hours of fishing.
