Snake River

The Snake River may not hold as many walleyes as some other fisheries in Eastern Washington, but the Snake is home to some of the biggest walleyes in the region. It is believed that some of the best walleye fishing on the Snake River is below Little Goose Dam to the mouth of the Columbia River near the Tri Cities. This portion of southeast Washington also offers some of the most solitary and remote fishing in the region. The Snake River is an impressive fishery boasting good numbers of smallmouth bass, yellow perch, crappie, big catfish, and huge sturgeon. Salmon and steelhead also make their seasonal migrations through the Snake River making this fishery one of the most diverse in the Inland Northwest.
