Yahoo! Steelhead Caught in Grande Ronde near Troy, Oregon
The fall Grande Ronde River Steelhead season is upon us. We have been a little concerned about the high temperatures and low water on the Grande Ronde in September preventing Steelhead from making their way up into Oregon. The water was in the 60’s and flowing below 500cfs for quite some time. Just this past week we saw the water level rise to about 650cfs and the temps dropped to 50 mid day. This was great news for us and as we expected caused some Steelhead to start moving. The bite is finally on.
Tom fished yesterday and on a swinging Purple Peril hooked 2 and landed the nice hen in the photo above. He spoke to the other anglers along the river and they all reported the same thing. “Steelhead are finally biting on the Troy, Oregon section of the Grande Ronde”.
I should have more time to keep up with this fly fishing report now that our busy summer season is over. Stay tuned for more Grande Ronde River Steelhead information and be sure to contact us when you would like to learn some of Tom’s secrets. He will be back on the river tomorrow. I will let you know what he finds.
We have a few seats left on our 5 day Grande Ronde River Supported Steelhead trip launching on October 28th. Contact us for more information.
