Thunder Outdoors

Spend the day with Thunder Outdoors and see what’s biting in Richland! Having logged many hours on these tides, Captain Thor knows them forwards and back.

These waters are known for Salmon, Walleye, Sturgeon, and more – with any luck, it won’t be long before "Fish on! On the day of your trip, you’re likely to troll using light or heavy tackle.

Trips with Thunder Outdoors are open to the whole family, so get ‘em offline and onto the water! Children must wear life vests, so find out if the appropriate size is available on board. Snacks are also a good idea so that nobody gets cranky on an empty belly!

Your trip begins aboard a 21’ Alumaweld sled with a capacity for 4 passengers. It comes with downriggers and all the essentials. What’s more, this vessel is wheelchair accessible. You’ll find rods, reels, and tackle waiting for you, along with lures.

You might need to get a local fishing license before the trip. This information is usually available online, or you can ask the captain. Some species might be protected or require a tag to keep them, so make sure you know what to expect.

A few items to bring include a hat, sunglasses, and sunscreen (non-spray). There will be some drinks on offer, but let the captain know if you wish to bring your own. Alcohol is allowed in moderation, but you should avoid hard liquor as well as glass bottles.

Now’s the time to experience fishing in the Tri-Cites in Washington state for yourself, with Thunder Outdoors!
