Brewster Guided Fishing

One of the most popular fisheries in the northwest takes place in Brewster Washington, also known as the “Brewster pool”. The target species is the Sockeye Salmon; most people consider it to be tastiest of the salmon species. The Brewster pool can only be described as action packed, both because of the type of bites you get and the close proximity of the hundreds of other boats. Kick back and relax with one of our experienced guides as they navigate the gauntlet of boats, while you enjoy reeling in some hard fighting sockeye. Although they are the smaller of the salmon species; their fight is exhilarating and will have everyone in your party grinning ear to ear, especially when it comes to enjoying them at the dinner table.

Sockeye aren’t all there is to be caught. Chinook salmon are frequently attracted to the sockeye gear and can also be targeted if you prefer or want to continue fishing after everyone has their limits of sockeye. Sockeye limits are usually 4 fish per person and you can expect the fish to weigh anywhere from 3 to 8 pounds. Since they are smaller, we use lighter equipment which makes the fight that much more fun and ensures a successful day on the water. Chinook can sometimes hook onto the lighter equipment which can also make things interesting from time to time.

This is a very popular fishery and our available dates are limited, as well as local hotel rooms. If you plan to spend the night to fish with us; we suggest booking trips and hotel rooms in advance. Brewster has campgrounds and hotels but they fill up fast. Pateros and Chelan are also close enough that we suggest looking into lodging accommodations in these cities too. Brewster is a great trip for families with children as we offer half day pricing (4 hours); which is plenty of time to catch your sockeye limit. Note this is an early morning fishery, you will typically meet your guide well before sunrise so plan accordingly.
