Warm Temps and Consistant Flows, Yahoo!
With air Temperatures hanging in the 50’s during the day, water temps hanging in the low to mid 40’s and the water flowing in the mid 900’s over the past few weeks the Steelhead fishing has been great on the Grande Ronde near Troy, Oregon. Most anglers that we talk to have been doing a lot more catching than fishing. W are not sure how long these ideal fishing conditions are going to hold on but we are certainly going to take full advantage of them. The crowds have been very light during the week. We have seen very little competition for prime fishing water. Not sure where everyone is but we are happy to have the water to ourselves.
The fishing has been so good this past week that we have seen 3 people catch their first Steelhead ever. 2 of those fish and the happy anglers are seen above. If you have never caught a Steelhead this may be your year. Get down there and give it a go. Hope to see you on the river.
