Wallowa River Steelhead Fishing Train May Ride Again.
We had some great news the other day. The WURA train board has hired a 3rd party to come in and manage the railroad operations on the short line between Elgin and Joseph, Oregon. The new managers have said that they are very interested in getting the Steelhead Fishing Train going again.
The Steelhead Train was just getting a head of steam 2 years ago when the WURA board decided they were unable to offer this service any more. Many of you remember the incredible fishing that we experienced on the Wallowa River that year. I remember many double digit days of steelhead fishing down there that season. There is a glimmer of hope for a few exploratory Steelhead train trips this spring with the intention being to have the Wallowa River Steelhead Train in full swing for the 2013 Wallowa River Steelhead Fishing Season. I will keep you posted on the status of the train as it reveals itself to me.
Please Contact Winding Waters to let us know if you are interested in getting back on the Steelhead train. The more people I can say are interested the better chance we will have of getting the Steelhead Train back on track. You can also join us on Facebook to stay tuned to what is going on.
Happy Steelhead fishing to all.
