World Class Trophy Walleye Fishing Trips on the Columbia River

Join Columbia River Walleye Guide on the Columbia River in Oregon and Washington for some of the best walleye fishing available in the United States. The walleye here are plentiful and large, in fact the next world record walleye is expected to be taken from the Columbia River. Most walleye will average 2 to 5 pounds, but many run into the teens. It's not unusual for a professional fishing guide to direct their clients into trophy walleye weighing as much as 15 pounds. Record Columbia River walleye landed 19 lbs

Columbia River MapThe Columbia River Gorge is a spectacular river canyon cutting the only sea-level route through the Cascade Mountain Range. It's 80 miles long and up to 4,000 feet deep with the north canyon walls in Washington State and the south canyon walls in Oregon State.

Columbia River
The Columbia River drains a 259,000-square-mile basin that includes territory in seven states (Oregon, Washington, Idaho, Montana, Nevada, Wyoming, and Utah) and one Canadian province. The river is arguably the most significant environmental force in the Pacific Northwest region of the United States. It flows for more than 1,200 miles, from the base of the Canadian Rockies in southeastern British Columbia to the Pacific Ocean at Astoria, Oregon, and Ilwaco, Washington. Oregon walleye fishing is some of the best in the world and Washington walleye fishing is more of the same.

Angler limits: Currently no limit.

Dams on the Columbia River slow the current of the Big River extending the time it takes for juvenile salmon to reach the Pacific Ocean. The slow current on the Columbia provides salmon predators, such as walleye, a wider window of opportunity and has thus helped the species to flourish. The pooling of river water also allows it to heat up, which increases salmon mortality, partly due to the growing populations of salmon predators, namely walleye, that have adapted over the years to the warmer waters. The dams, along with the over abundance of forage fish, have created the perfect habitat for Columbia River River walleye and these species will continue to flourish in its waters. We also fish Rufus Oregon, a popular and productive area for walleye.

Portland Walleye Fishing

Columbia River Walleye

The Columbia River produces big walleye . . . very big walleye. There's no secret about that anymore. Sizes range into the high teens and anglers come to the Magnificent River from all over North America to tangle with a genuine wallhanger, and just maybe, get their name in "The Record Book". Photo above: Ken Bain of Spokane poses with a 14-pound, 7-ounce trophy walleye he caught on the lower Spokane River near Fort Spokane on Feb. 20, 2010. Full story

Trophy Walleye
Big walleye spend the warmer half of the year prowling the flats close to the bottom or lying in ambush near rocky structure . . . in both cases at 20 to 30 feet for fish over 4 pounds. They use their eyes to locate prey and their speed to overcome it. Target prey are shad and squawfish smolts, sculpins and the occasional salmon, steelhead or trout smolts. Walleye are NOT timid feeders. On the contrary, they are ferocious predators. When they see one of these fast-moving forage fish within their range, they strike with an aggressiveness that rivals ANY game fish!

Best Time for Walleye
Summer is a good time to catch nice size walleye and the weather is typically warm and dry. If you are looking for trophy walleye spring has proven to be a good time in most areas of the Columbia River. Below Bonneville Dam the end of August through mid October is a good time. Mothers Day has provided good action at times. January is also a good time to catch walleye and numerous trophy fish have been landed in January and February, although the weather can be challenging at times with cold wind and rain.

Areas we Fish Walleye
Walleyes are caught in the Columbia River from the Washington Canadian boarder to Astoria Oregon. The number of fish being caught is limited in some areas, but our guides only target the most productive areas where the walleye are plentiful and large. In February our upper river walleye guides, near Grand Coulee, launch from the Elmer City ramp and fish either upstream to the Highway 155 bridge or downstream to Chief Joseph Dam, a distance of approximately 50 miles.

Numerous locations exist where we begin our guided walleye trips along the mighty Columbia River, including, but not limited to; Banks Lake (WA), below Grand Coulee Dam (WA), Pasco (WA), below Mc Nary Dam, Umatilla, Hermiston, Irrigon, Boardman, below John Day Dam at Rufus and mouth of Deschutes, below Bonneville Dam, at The Fishery, near Fairview at Chinook Landing, near Portland airport and also several locations in Portland on both the Columbia River and Willamette River.
