Good For Trout & Whitefish

Wallowa River - Wallowa , OR

by OR Department of Fish & Wildlife Staff

The Wallowa River will continue to be good for trout and whitefish. The best time to fish will be in the late evenings in runs that are shaded by the canyon walls. Grasshopper patterns can be effective into September, as well as caddis and mayflies if trout are being picky. 

Steelhead season opened on Sept. 1 but fish aren’t generally available until later in the fall/early winter. Steelhead season will opened with a reduced bag limit of 2 fish per day.
