Fishing Reports

This is where we will post information about the action on The John Day river and and current fishing conditions. Over the years we will continue to keep old reports posted so that you can see information all year long and perhaps better plan what may be a better time to plan a future adventure with us. Make it a point to check out our report section on a regular basis and thanks for stopping by often as it's always good to see you. 


1-14-2015:     The John Day River Snow Pack is at 112% of normal after the first 3 innings of the Snow Pack ball game. So, too soon to make any summer predictions, but good news.

The water froze up around November 13th, 2014 and blew out around Thanksgiving time. It’s frozen a couple of times since then, and just finished pushing out the ice. It is running around 2000+ right now and will go down during the week, but is predicted to jump up again next Saturday, January 17. I will send an e-mail out the last week of January and let you know if I will offer any early steelhead trips the firs couple weeks of February (it will take stable weather and river forecast). Call now, 971-533-5733, if you would like to get on a ***********“List to be called”*************

Otherwise, we have some steelhead dates the end of February and first of March: February 24, 25, 27; March 2, 4, 5, 12, and 13. The March dates will probably get some smallmouth bass at mid-day. We caught our first smallmouth bass February 28, 2014. The Pure Steelhead Trips are $375 for 3 anglers….

The Best Trophy (18”-20”) and Master Angler Smallmouth bass(20” +) months were April and May in 2014. We still have some dates left: March 26, 27, 28 (steelhead in morning); April 14; May 4, 14, 22, 26, 27, 29, and 30. These Deluxe One-Day trips are $500 for 2 anglers, or $750 for 3.
