    We had a great time with Tom. Caught some great fish, enjoyed a beautiful day on the water, and saw some wildlife. 10/10 would recommend Hammer Down for your next fishing trip. Hells Canyon is an experience in itself.

    This is our second trip with Hammer Down Excursions We went fishing on the snake river on April 6th, with Homer as our fishing guide. We took our son and 4 year old grandson along and we all caught many small mouth bass. Homer’s knowledge of fishing and the area is extensive and he was able to answer a multitude of questions about fishing and the river. We stopped for a break at Kirkwood historic ranch, where there was an old museum. It was interesting and was a great addition to the day. My wife caught a 20 inch long, small mouth bass and she has been talking about it ever since! We are already planning our third fishing trip with Hammer Down for later this summer! Thanks for a great time, Homer! We all had a wonderful day!

    Just wrapped up a 2 day trip with Homer and his staff. Had an amazing time. Harry and Tom were our guides. Caught a ton of fish. These two busted their butts to keep us on fish. Super cool guys. Food was amazing. Beautiful area and a top notch experience. Don't hesitate book a trip!

    Homer is an excellent guide. Two of the guys from my team were able to catch sturgeon for the first time. Ask for lunch, it's delicious.

    We had a fantastic time. My 84 year old mother & I thoroughly enjoyed the scenic tour. We are now ready to do the damn tour. Tom, our guide was engaging and helpful, not just an excellent captain, but getting us in & out of the boat safely to laying out a lunch before us that was delicious. He made stops for us when we asked and told us the history of the area. I highly recommend Hammer Down. They are hands down, "good people".
