Large walleye can be found in the Columbia River. Very large. There are customers that come to us from all over the world in hopes of catching a monster walleye fit for hanging on the wall. The record-breaking walleye, which weighed 14 pounds, 7 ounces, was captured in 2010. Definitely a great fish!
Large walleye feed during half of the year by swimming near to the bottom in the Columbia River’s flat regions. In 20 to 30 feet of water, we frequently discover walleye that weigh more than four pounds. The summer, when it’s usually warm and dry, is the ideal season for walleye fishing. Walleye fishing is common from August through October below Bonneville Dam. Walleye fishing in the Columbia is plentiful and makes a great family fishing trip. Our walleye guided fishing trips often catch a large number of fish per person each day.
However, walleye fishing isn’t just a summertime activity! The month of January offers excellent walleye fishing, and between January and the end of February, many trophy walleye fish have been captured. Just be ready for brisk conditions with a lot of wind and rain.
