2011 Fall Grande Ronde Steelhead Fishing is on.
Tom just returned from Troy this afternoon with some great news from the Grande Ronde River. He and Brian were fishing yesterday and today and they each landed nice big Grande Ronde River Steelhead. Tom Landed a nice Wild Buck and Brian a Hatchery Hen. The weather is still nice down in Troy but it is Raining and Snowing up in the highcountry.
We are getting the nice fluch of cold water that we asked for. It has been raining and snowing for almost 36 hours now which has increased the flows from 650 to about 850cfs and brought the water temperature down to 49 degrees. These are perfect dry fly swinging conditions. Both Steelhead were caught swinging Muddler Minnows on top.
This should be just the bump in water levels that we needed to encourage those stalled out Steelhead to remember why they are there and begin their trek up into the Troy area of the Grande Ronde.
