Washington Fishing Guides Favorite Rivers

 

Cowlitz River   

 

Just a few hours drive South of Seattle - is the very popular Cowlitz River.  The Cowlitz routinely ranks as one of the top fishing rivers in Washington for Winter Steelhead, Spring Chinook, Summer Steelhead and Fall Silvers and Kings...

 

Most action for Steelhead is based around the Blue Creek area just below the Steelhead Hatchery - Steelhead fishing is found throughout the river.

 

Salmon Fishing is also found throughout the river, but can also concentrate in numbers near the Salmon Hatchery higher up in the river

 

Skykomish River   

 

About and hour Northeast of Seattle - is the Skykomish River.  The "Sky" is a popular local fishing river - producing Winter Steelhead normally just after Thanksgiving and Trophy wild Steelhead up to 30 pounds in late winter.  A spring Chinook run is now available in June.  Summer Steelhead is very popular as are the fall runs of Silvers, Kings and Chum Salmon.

 

Columbia River     

 

For most of it's length the Columbia serves as the border between Oregon and Washington.   Nearly year round fishing opportunities are found on the Columbia. 

 

The Spring Chinook Salmon fishing run is looked upon with much anticipation by Washington anglers!  The " Springers" arrive in April or May and don't lay their eggs until fall.  They are comparable to the Copper River Salmon in the high concentration of body fat to sustain them throughout the Spring and Summer Months!  Sturgeon are found throughout the river as they follow their food sources from the mouth at Astoria to the Bonneville Dam.  Steelhead and Salmon runs follow the Spring Chinook Salmon fishing through late December!

 

Olympic Peninsula  

 

The most beautiful portion of the state offering some of the hottest Steelhead Fishing, Trout fishing and Salmon fishing.. Remote and unspoiled.  The Olympic Peninsula is a diverse blend of climates and natural wonders. Jutting out of the northwest corner the state, it comprises some of the richest and most undeveloped forestland in Washington.

 

See what our customers have to say!

 

"I have fished with many guides and charters from Florida to Alaska over the years, and now fish exclusively with Eli Rico - owner of Hotshot Guide Services.

 

When fishing with some guides, you feel you are just a number and their only duty is to get you on and off the water and sometimes get fish - with Eli, you feel that he really enjoys seeing his customers catch fish and that at the end of the day - you are a friend, not just a listing in a database. 

 

Eli is extremely knowledgeable of local fishing waters and very innovative in developing new methods to increase customer catch rates.  

 

Eli is also a great fishing teacher and is not afraid to share his fishing techniques and fishing knowledge with you, I have learned a great deal fishing with him and learn something new on each fishing trip!"
