Walleye Fishing Guide on Columbia River & Snake River
There are monster Walleye living in the Columbia River and potentially a new world record is just a cast away. The current Washington Walleye state record was caught by John Grebenhoff in the Tri-Cities on the Columbia River at an amazing weight of 20.32 pounds in 2014 (pictured right). This is only 5 pounds short of the world record Walleye caught in Tennessee in the 1960’s.
Fishers Catch Outfitters specialized in going after world class Walleye! Without giving away too many secrets the lunker Walleye are voracious predators that strike hard and fast as they stalk the deep sections of the Columbia River for baitfish and Salmon/Steelhead Fry. We often work the 20-30 foot depth flats and depending on the season have several holes surrounding the dams that constantly produce drag peeling Walleye fights.
McNary Dam on the Columbia River is one of the top Walleye fishing locations in the world. Before the dam was built there were numerous rocky outcoves and islands that have now become submerged and provide the perfect structures for monster Walleye to stalk prey. Knowing where these islands were located and targeting specific runs that contain additional structure for baitfish allows for the larger Walleye to be targeted! Captain Tony’s years of experience and hours on the water are essential if you are considering going after these elusive predators.
