by OR Department of Fish & Wildlife Staff

Recently, trout fishing has been very good on the Wallowa River wish some fish longer than 14 inches being caught. Locally, October caddis will begin hatching creating a fun fishing opportunity. Casting spinners also may be a good way to catch trout in the Wallowa River.

Steelhead fishing will open on the Wallowa River on Sept. 1. Steelhead fishing will probably be slow to start but should improve later in the year. Anglers are reminded that wild steelhead, Chinook salmon, and bull trout cannot be harvested and must be released.
