Guided Walleye Fishing Trips
Walleye fishing in the Pacific Northwest has vastly become one of the hottest destination fisheries in the United States. Stott’s fishing team chases walleye year around on the Columbia and Snake Rivers as well Potholes Reservoir. Walleye were introduced to this part of the country in the early 1960’s and since have flourished in our river systems. Abundant food sources and plenty of structure creates perfect conditions for growing trophy sized fish. We have lots of 2 to 4 pound fish that are best known for the excellent table fare but our anglers choose to hire our guide service to chase the potential new world record. The current Washington state record, weighing just over 20 pounds was caught right in our back yard on the Columbia River around the Tri Cities area.
Pacific Northwest Strong in Walleye Numbers
Guides and Tournament anglers believe that the next world record will come from this same area we fish. Walleye populations on the Columbia are growing stronger and stronger every year so both Washington and Oregon Fish & Game removed a daily limit on walleyes.
Stott’s walleye fishing guides aim to provide opportunity for harvesting this tasty white meat while protecting the future of trophy sized fish. We do recommend releasing walleye in the 26 – inch class and will be happy to take measurements and pics for your local taxidermist. Our walleye trips are great for anglers of all ages and experience levels. We can combine the trip with sturgeon, bass, perch, crappie and even salmon depending on time of year.
