Steelhead on the Wallowa
Well it is about time for the Wallowa to start heating up. Tom went down on the 25th for an exploratory mission. He found what he called a summer like flow ie lower than he expected. He did say that the water was clear and cold 37degrees. After nymphing with the Prince between 11 and 4 pm he only ended up with a Bull Trout, a few nice Rainbows and some Whitefish. He was unable to raise a Steelhead yesterday.
Between now and April 1st you should expect to see at least one post a week. We are going to be keeping a close eye on the Wallowa this year as it should be a great season down there. IF you haven’t heard already, the Steelhead Train is on uncertain ground right now. There are some negotiations happening which could affect the train next month. First run is scheduled for February 20th. I will try to keep you posted on the fishing conditions as well as the Steelhead Train Status.
Incidentally, Morgan and I had a great day on the Imnaha last week. Caught a few beauties and enjoyed the warm sunny day. This is a photo of one of the fish we caught on the Imnaha that day.
