Friday January 29th Wallowa River
Tom made it back down to the Wallowa yesterday. It was a beautiful day and he found a few Steelhead willing to take his Prince Nymph. Water is still clear, 37 degrees and low, so he was forced to search out those deep slow pools to find the fish. He caught a number of Whitefish, and Rainbow Trout and 2 Steelhead on the Prince Nymph. Looks like the fish are in there. A little flush of fresh water will probably set things on fire down there.
The Weatherman is telling us this may happen tonight and tomorrow. We will let you know what happens and if some new water in the system really gets those fish moving around.
Sounds like the Fishing Train is going to happen. After much debate and round and round with the plan for the train I think they have figured out a way to make it happen. I need to correct my previous post regarding the first scheduled train. It will be happening on February 13th. There are still seats available so give the Minam Motel a call to reserve yours today. (541) 437-4475
See you on “The Wallowa“.
Sorry Tom was unable to get any photos but there will be more to come very soon.
Come visit Morgan and I at the Portland Sportsman Show February 10-13th at the Expo Center.
