Owyhee River Fish Report for 2-11-2021
Owyhee River Report
by OR Department of Fish & Wildlife Staff
Sampling in September showed there are still plenty of large brown and rainbow trout available from 16 to 24 inches. Fishing has been good recently and anglers have reported catching some very large rainbow trout. Brown trout have also been biting with catch rates of about two fish per hour.
Flows downstream from Owyhee Reservoir are now 29 cfs and will likely remain at that level throughout the winter.
Brown trout have finished spawning but anglers should still avoid wading in gravely areas to protect fish redds where eggs and fry are developing.
Avoid over-playing a hooked fish as they are expending a lot of energy and it will take a lot longer to recover.
