Steelhead season kicks off on the Snake River at Heller Bar September 15th and runs through March 15th. We have the early A-Run fish weighing an average of 4-10 pounds, followed by the famous B-Run hogs weighing in at 12-15 pounds on average with a good number of 20+ pound monsters caught every season. Northwest Fishing Expeditions has a crew of guides who are experts in all techniques used in catching these sought after Trophy Steelhead. From Side-Drifting eggs, Back Trolling Plugs or Bait and Bobber-n-Jig, we will get you into a Steelhead of a lifetime!! Northwest Fishing Expeditions is Washington’s premier fishing guide service.
For the Fly Fishing enthusiast we offer a Grande Ronde River trip in the fall season as well. These trips start up October 1 and run through November. This is a great time catch a beautiful Steelhead on the surface with a swung fly. From casting a Spey Rod to throwing a Single Hander we will surely get you into a hard fighting, acrobatic Steelhead. As the winter goes on we turn to Nymping as the fish tend to hang in the deeper pools. We also Fly Fish the Snake River, which is very productive. Swinging flys on this big river is a must do, with long runs and big tailouts. The Snake River is a Spey Caster’s dream.
