Grande Ronde River Fishing Report

Grande Ronde River - Colville, OR (Union County)

by OR Department of Fish & Wildlife Staff

The daily bag limit of one hatchery steelhead will continue through Dec. 31. Bag limits were reduced to protect limited numbers of wild fish returning to the Snake River Basin and to ensure hatchery programs meet production goals.
Steelhead fishing has been difficult this year due to the low numbers of returning fish and low flows. However, anglers did see an increase in action last week with a few more fish being caught. Pressure tends to drop off heading into winter and persistent anglers that are willing to fight the cold can have a few fish to themselves.
Anglers should be aware that fall Chinook, bull trout, and coho are currently present in the fishery and should be released immediately and unharmed.
