Grande Ronde River Steelhead Oct 17
Tom fished the Grande Ronde River near Troy with a client on Tuesday and found the conditions to be perfect. This was reflected by the number of anglers he encountered fishing. The word is out that Steelhead are in the Oregon waters of the Grande Ronde. Tom did not see much Steelhead action on Tuesday. They caught Trout and Bull Trout but no Steelhead.
The Grande Ronde River Steelhead Creel Report from last week reported catch rates of 10.8 hours per Steelhead in Washington and 15.4 hours per Steelhead in Oregon waters near Troy. There have however been some great reports of folks catching up to 8 Steelhead in a day.
We did launch our first 5 Day Grande Ronde River Supported Steelhead trip yesterday. The group launched under sunny skis from the Minam boat launch. They will be off of the river on sunday so expect a full report on Monday from their trip.
