Known as a Hells Canyon specialist, Jason Schultz has been a full time fishing guide in Idaho, Washington and Oregon for 20 years. He possesses Idaho outfitter permits for the Snake River in Hells Canyon and Clearwater River and holds a special use permit for the nationally famous Snake River in the Hells Canyon National Recreation Area. As a full time fishing guide Schultz spends most of his time on the water targeting salmon, steelhead, sturgeon, walleye, smallmouth bass and trout in Hells Canyon on the Snake River and on the Clearwater River and Columbia River. Owner of Hells Canyon Sport Fishing, Schultz's operation consists of five full time guides with more than 65 years combined guiding experience.
Schultz spends his spring guiding spring Chinook trips on the Snake River and Clearwater Rivers in April, May and June, prior to switching to fall Chinook and Coho on the Columbia River in Astoria, Oregon, between August and September 15. From then through March 15 he sticks close to home and focuses on steelhead on the Snake and Clearwater River. In between, he'll seek out sturgeon on the Snake River in Hells Canyon, walleye on the Columbia River in Umatilla, Oregon and smallmouth and trout fishing in Hells Canyon. Speaking of Hells Canyon, Schultz has spent more than 2,000 days guiding steelhead anglers alone here and endured half of his life developing personal guide strategies to always continue to become a better angler and apply new techniques. Each season Jason Schultz guides clients in his twin engine Hells Canyon Marine jet boat to catch between 2,000 - 3,000 steelhead. A guided steelhead fishing trip with Schultz or one of his professional steelhead guides can be very productive!
