Spring Chinook
Usually kicks off in mid-March and runs through late May and depends on what the state will allow before shutting the river system down. Quick limits along with multiple limits for the boat easily allow the state to shut it down. It usually starts on March 16th at Bonneville Dam and runs till the last week in April, when the season is shut down for that particular part of the river system. We then move up river to Drano Lake and the Wind River. Daily limits are easily taken until the end of May. Fishing at John Day Dam along with McNary Dam is also encouraged, depending on dam counts and daily catch rates. We will be back to using trolling plugs and fresh bait; fish usually run between 10 to 30lbs.

Fall Chinook salmon season will start in late August and run through the end of October. Reserve your dates early to get the best possible fishing day available for the season. Steelhead and fall Chinook combo trips available starting

The Columbia River Fishery is one of the most diverse fisheries in the northwest. All in the same body of water you can fish for Chinook Salmon, Coho Salmon, Sockeye Salmon, Steelhead, Shad, Sturgeon, Walleye and a number of other fish.


Trophy Walleye

Fishing from McNary Dam downstream to the Deschutes River near Biggs, Oregon for the biggest trophy walleye available. The season is February through April. General nice size walleye thereafter through October.

The Columbia is most famous for its runs of Salmon but one of the up and coming fisheries is the Walleye Fishing. Because of its perfect water conditions and the consistent amount of food it is expected that the Columbia will produce the next Worlds Record Walleye.
Of course the Salmon fishing on the Columbia is some of the best in the world. The Columbia is well known for its Chinook Salmon runs but did you know that it also has large runs of Coho, Sockeye, and Shad?
If Steelhead Fishing is what you are looking to do the Columbia has an amazing run of winter steelhead. Mid Columbia River Fishing Guides offers steelhead fishing in the Mid Columbia areas but through our sister company Columbia River Guides you can also fish for Steelhead in the upper Columbia or even into the Snake River system.
