Wallowa River Fishing Conditions are Good.
Tom and Jake have fished the Wallowa every day since Saturday and are having a great week. They have caught nice Steelhead every day including this 28″ 7.5 pound bright hen. You can tell by the look on Jake’s face that this was a nice one.
Their report from last night March 12th said, despite the big spike in flow on the Grande Ronde River the Wallowa is holding steady and continues to have nice clarity and color and water temp in the low 40’s. This is quite surprising considering the warm weather we have been having. they stopped in at the Hatchery and found that there are many new Steelhead beginning to show up there. Seems like the high flows of the GR are really getting those fish moving up stream into the Wallowa. If the river hangs in there the fishing should continue to get better and better during the next few weeks. You gotta love catching Steelhead on a nice sunny 60 degree day. No gloves needed out there this time of year. Just sun glasses.
