Like fishing for compliments, fishing for fish requires the right bait, the right line, and a friend who is willing to exaggerate. Reel it in with today's Groupon: for $800, you get a steelhead charter fishing trip for up to four people from Beamers Hells Canyon Tours in Asotin (a $1,495 value). Reservations must be made ahead of time, as space is limited. The charter trip includes the following:
- Boat access and guided fishing for up to four people
- All necessary steelhead fishing gear
- Lunch and beverages
Beamers Hells Canyon Tours' expert fishing guides and charter boat captains exercise mastery over one of the deepest river gorges in North America as they lead anglers along aquatic avenues and boulevards brimming with water breathers. With professional guidance and an arsenal of steelhead fishing equipment, water wranglers will drift, troll, and cast along known hot spots, and discover valuable techniques such as how to maneuver lures in the water and how to handle the strong-willed steelhead. In addition to acquiring trout-seeking secrets and delving into proper etiquette for landing a fish once it's on the line, anglers will be able to observe multiple mountain ranges and local wildlife foraging for food or preparing their tax-return forms. The 26-foot fishing sled will depart at around 7 a.m. and return at around 5 p.m. depending on the sun's mood, and anglers will be provided with lunch and beverages so they can stay energized throughout the day. Comfortable clothing is recommended, along with sunscreen and sunglasses to protect eyes from the gleaming scales of sunbathing fish.
