Today’s Fishing Experience:


Great day on the Wallowa River.  The Steelhead are definitely in and it is go time.  Dead drifting flourescent nymph patterns was successful today. Landed 3 nice 2 salt Steelhead which is what we have come to expect from this year’s run with the majority of the Steelhead caught being 2 salts this year.

Steelhead fishing pressure was pretty high below the hatchery at Big Canyon but not too bad above which is where all 3 Steelhead were landed.
