Valentines Day Steelhead on Wallowa River
|From Doug Senn Steelhead|
Wallowa River – February 14, 2009
The Steelhead have arrived in the Wallowa River. We fished the Wallowa on Feb 14th on a beautiful day. 4 steelhead were hooked on the Prince Nymph with 3 being landed.
The water is still a little shallow but we are expecting some warm wet weather to move through the area during the end of February. This should provide an increase in flow and water temp which will bring more fish into the system. We expect the fishing to really pick up by the end of the month.
The Steelhead train is in operation on the weekends through the end of March. This is a very fun and unique way to access some beautiful roadless stretches of the Wallowa River below Minam.
