A Few Reports of Anglers Catching Fish

Wallowa River - Wallowa , OR

by OR Department of Fish & Wildlife Staff

The Wallowa River is open for steelhead and we’ve received a few reports of anglers catching fish.  Despite there being a few fish around, success rates will likely be low until fish have a little more time to move through the system.  Due to an effort to adjust the run timing of hatchery steelhead, more fish have been available in the fall in recent years.
Trout and whitefish fishing can remain good through the winter.  Fishing places away from the typical steelhead holes can result in some nice fish with good catch rates.  During the cold months, fishing sub surface with smaller flies is most productive.
