Wallowa Lake Fishing Report

Wallowa Lake - Joseph, OR (Wallowa County)

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. The daily bag limit of one hatchery steelhead will continue through the end of the season on April 30, 2019.

Kokanee fishing has improved recently and large fish are being caught. A reduction in the population size has allowed for fish to grow larger and anglers are catching fish up to 20-inches with the average around 13-inches.
