March Fishing Madness: the Wallowa River is On
The Wallowa River conditions couldn’t be better as of yesterday, Feb 28th. The 10,000 cfs pulse the Grande Ronde received this past week helped the Steelhead move up river. The Big Canyon Fish Facility on the Minam (1 mile up from the confluence with the Wallowa River) received 100 Steelhead this past Monday, so the fish are moving! Tom fished the Wallowa yesterday and even though he didn’t hook up with a Steelhead, he said the water looked good. He caught Whitefish, Rainbows and a Bull Trout, which indicated to Tom he just wasn’t in the right place. Even with above freezing temps predicted for the weekend, the nights are still going to be below freezing, so he feels the fishing conditions should hold. Happy Steelheading!
