Check-in and get a cup of coffee at our headquarters in Riggins around 7:00am they will have detailed directions to Pittsburgh Landing if you need them. The jet boat and captain will be waiting for you at the boat ramp at Pittsburgh Landing a 45 mile drive north of Riggins.

The jet boat and captain are at your disposal for the day, we usually start picking up a few bass just around the corner from the ramp that will serve as sturgeon bait throughout the day. We provide a nice lunch that can be enjoyed on the boat while fishing a sturgeon hole or riverside. Many enjoy the warm water for swimming during the day. We can stop at a few historical sites along the way or just keep reeling in the bass it is up to you.

Hells Canyon is awesome in every way, the best year around fishing in Idaho. The Snake River offers consistent water temperatures to give it the highest fish per mile river section anywhere. Choose from warm water Bass, prehistoric Sturgeon in the summer months or ocean run King Salmon or Steelhead in the fall.
