The Fishing Report

Grande Ronde River Steelhead Report

I have a few reports to finish up here. Our lead Fly Fishing Guide Tom was down fishing on the 27th and found the fishing to be slow. The water temperature was 40 degrees and clear. The big flush of water last Sunday just slightly colored the river. Tom was swinging a light sink tip and a purple intruder and had no luck all day. He also talked to the creel guy and a few other anglers who reported the same experience. The Troy area has been slow this week. What he did find out was that the anglers on the lower river below Boggans Oasis have been seeing an increase in the number of fish. It looks like the increased flows have triggered a large group of Steelhead to begin moving up from the Snake River. We hope to see them in the Troy area very soon. I will keep you posted.

I just picked up our Supported trip yesterday. They just completed a 5 day float through the Wild and Scenic section of river between Minam and Powatka bridge. The group was guiding themselves while fishing during the day and Morgan and Jon were taking care of all of the camp logistics allowing the anglers to fish all day and then show up to a heated wall tent and a hot meal at the end of the day. They reported some good fishing down there. They were catching fish everyday and having a great time. They were even having luck swinging a dry fly across the surface on a few occasions. The magic of the Grande Ronde.
See you on “The River”
