Wind River Fishing Guides
Wind River fishing guides troll for limits of Salmon on one of the very popular Columbia River tributaries in the Northwest. Salmon fishing is good here trolling in shallow water with lures or baits such as herring and shrimp. Local area Columbia River fishing guides and Wind River Fishing guides know these waters and the right baits and lures to catch fish with here. They also know the tides and the best times of day to fish. Stream flows and tides can change what you use for bait and when and how to fish so a local charter boat service or knowledgeable Wind River fishing guide can help you catch limits of Salmon and larger Salmon too.
The wind river is the first major Columbia gorge river located above the Bonneville dam. The wind river is popular for spring Chinook fishing and also for fishing for summer Steelhead. There are about two million spring Chinook smolts coming up the wind river every year beginning in March and running through April and May. Most of the fishing on the wind river is done near the mouth where the Wind river runs in two the Columbia River. Much of the fishing here is done from boats and not from the shore. It is strongly recommended that you contact Wind river fishing guides to learn how to fish this area. If you want to fish for Steelhead August and September are the best months. Steelhead fishing is best in the flat water at the mouth of the wind river. Good fishing techniques are drift fishing in a boat with bait, casting spinners and plugs. Backtrolling plugs and lures is also popular. Trolling anchor fishing plunking and jigging are also popular methods. Wind river fishing guides are always catching salmon and steelhead on the wind river because they know how to catch salmon and how to catch steelhead on the wind river where aid flows into the Columbia River.
