Default Columbia River Walleye Fishing

Going to fish the Columbia River on February 14 & 15.

Chartering a boat with guide, but just wondering if anyone that has done it could share any tips/tricks, what to bring with etc.

Thanks in advance for any replies

What does your guide recommend?

About 15 years ago I fished the Columbia out of Hood River, OR. The guide should have everything you need. It is big water and there is lots of current. The boat anchored off and we fished with river sinkers and big shad type minnows. Slayed the walleyes that were 17 to 26 inches. Caught a salmon too. The guide said it was the best day he had had in awhile. Be prepared for rain and a cold wind.

If you are in that neck of the woods anyway, did you ever consider taking on one of those 12'-15' monster white sturgeon in the Snake & Columbia rivers?
