Big Fish Guides Service offers full day fishing trips on the Columbia River for Salmon, Steelhead and Sturgeon, Fall Chinook, Walleye, Spring Salmon, Kings and Coho in the Portland area and popular nearby rivers up to John Day dam.
Mid Columbia River Walleye fishing is a specialty for Big Fish Guide Service too and Columbia River Walleye fishing is very popular. We also fish for Walleye on the John Day River. Popular places to catch Walleye in Oregon and Washington are up and down the Columbia River near popular Walleye fishing spots like The Dalles and Biggs Junction.

WINTER Steelhead
Big Fish Guide Service will be fishing for Walleye from late Feb, till Oct. The bite for Walleye should be very good. Feb through April is pre spawn so we do get bigger fish during this time and the amount of bites we get a day has a lot to do with the water temp. I will be fishing the Dalles pool and the Rufus area and will fish below the Dalles Dam. Wherever the bite is best!

Hockey legend Bobby Hull
has a real passion for fishing.
Bobby Hull is a Canadian former ice hockey player who is regarded as one of the greatest hockey players of all time.

     His blonde hair, legendary skating speed, end to end rushes, and the ability to shoot the puck at very high velocity, were all a part of the player known as "The Golden Jet".

     His talents were such that one or two opposing players were often assigned just to shadow him—a tribute to his explosiveness. He was elected to the Hockey Hall of Fame in 1983, the Ontario Sports Hall of Fame in 1997, and received the Wayne Gretzky International Award in 2003.

     World famous hockey legend Bobby Hull could fish with anyone in the world and at any place in the world. That's why we are so very proud that he chose Josh Frederick's Big Fish Guide Service when he decided to go fishing in the Northwest. It was a great day on the water!
