Guided Salmon and Steelhead Fishing Trips Klickitat River Washington State

The Klickitat river is by far one of the best kept secrets in fresh water fishing.

Providing Full Package Guided Drift Boat Fishing, Riverside Lodging in unique open beam cabins and meals that please all.

Fishing eight to ten miles a day.

Klickitat River Guides is a third generation guide service that was founded By my father Phil Zoller in the 1960s

Most of the river runs through a Remote road less no trails Indian reservation. The lower 30 miles is ran with drift boats.

Our company holds one of two fishing guides permits on the wild and scenic section. This provides low guided pressure.

Being that the Klickitat is a glacier flowing stream the water stays cool and the fish stay firm and powerful. The Salmon and Steelhead migrate from the Pacific ocean up the Columbia and into the Klickitat . The Fish migration starts taking place in the spring and runs through the winter.

The climate in the Klickitat valley is very unique. As the storms come in off the pacific the rain falls in the cascade range. Twenty miles west of the Klickitat its a rain forest ten miles east its a desert. We have Pine and oak forest with the south faced hills being mixed with open natural meadows and talk about wildlife you name it its here.

So if your looking to take a fishing trip and want Big fish! Great scenery! Second and third generation guides that were brought up to be guides, give us a call or email.

We can accommodate up to eight people per day

Many folks book two day trips.
