Valentines Day Report for Wallowa
Tom braved it down on the Wallowa on Valentines Day, hoping the anglers would all be spending the day with their sweeties. This was not the case and he found the river to be a bit crowded. This did not discourage him as he simply went to one of his secret spots. He only had about an hour to fish but in that hour he caught 2 Steelhead on the Prince Nymph. Pretty good hours per fish numbers.
He said that the water speeds had increased slightly indicating a small increase in flows. He did say however that the water still seemed a little low. He also noted the water temps were holding at 37 degrees and were very clear. We are still hoping for a little more warmer water to flow into the system to get the fish moving around a bit more.
The crowds are beginning to show up on the weekends but during the week pressure is very light.
Thanks to all of you who visited us at the Sportsmen’s Show last week. We enjoyed talking with all of you.
The Fishing Train will begin this weekend. Call the Minam Motel to book your trip.541-437-4475.
