Grande Ronde River Steelhead Fishing Report Nov 1
Tom had a wonderful day on the river yesterday. HIs client Mike caught a nice 28 inch Wild Grande Ronde River Steelhead Buck. They found the river to be clear but cold. The water temps were holding around 40 degrees F and the River Flows are 843cfs. Mike was new to Steelhead fishing so considering that and the water temps they chose to nymph most of the day. Mike caught this fish on a size 12 tungsten head prince nymph with red wings about 6 miles downriver from Troy.
I do think the best Grande Ronde River Steelhead fishing has yet to come. Today it actually started to feel like Steelhead season with a rainy cold front moving in. We are looking forward to a great November on the Grande Ronde River. The October crowds are subsiding and the fish should be continue moving into Oregon waters.
Morgan, Jon, Todd and Tammy just launched on a 5 day trip from Minam to Troy. This is their guides only trip celebrating a long Rafting and Fishing Season. They felt the need to get down there after running all of our Supported Steelhead trips this October. It says a lot that they still want to be down there after working down there for the month of October. I should have a report from them for you on Wednesday.
