The Fish are active again!
Back again after a bit of a layoff. Last week the Steelhead turned on again after a short slowdown at the end of October. The week of November 3 we had 4 days of fishing on the Grande Ronde, with Steelhead caught on each day. Most fishermen encountered on the river were reporting good luck. Yesterday we saw a huge flush of water come down the river. The GR went from 1200cfs on Wednesday the 12th to over 4000 cfs yesterday. This flow has dropped quickly back down to 2500 today. We expect this to bring more fish upstream and for the fishing to be great after the flows stabilize. I will keep you posted on what we find down there.
Let me know what you are finding on the river. We are trying to gather as much information as possible. I am planning on openning up a Fishing Forum that will be more user friendly with easier access for users to leave photos and reports. Stay tuned.
The Imnaha River is fishing great right now. I had a report of a single fisherman having a 5 fish day on November 13th. The Imnaha didn’t see the big increase in flows as the GR did.
