Wallowa River Steelhead Fishing Update March 17th
The Wallowa River shaped up for Steelhead fishing over the weekend. The clarity is back and the river is flowing green again. There were a lot of people chomping at the bit to catch a Steelhead this weekend making it a bit crowded down by the hatchery. I am still waiting for the creel report to come in today and will update this post with those numbers after I see them. It does sound like the Steelhead Catching was a bit slow this weekend. We are hopeful that a new surge of Steelhead is moving up out of the canyon now that the river has settled back down.
Quick update on this report. I just saw the creel report from last weekend and numbers are shaping up just like the flows. 70 anglers were checked over 3 days march 10, 12 and 16. A total of 31 Steelhead were caught with an average of 8 hours per fish.
