Your heart leaps as you watch a large native Steelhead snatch your skating dry fly on the Grande Ronde River. Kids laugh with excitement as they land their first Rainbow on the Wallowa.  You realize you just missed a nice strike at your fly because you were too busy taking in the rugged beauty of the Imnaha canyon .  These are just a sample of the experiences you can have in the territory the Nez Perce called “Land of Winding Water.”

10/2 Some good news/bad news. Which do want first? Bad news is that we need more rain or snow - the rivers are dropping again after the good bump we got three weeks ago. There is no rain in the forecast. The good news is that the Wallowa trout fishing has been good and steelhead are being caught at Troy and above. Steelhead are regularly being caught at the mouth of the Grande and the Snake, (slightly earlier than normal) and steelhead are pouring over Lower Granite Sam.

9/8 Some good steelhead news just in from ODFW. See the Grande Rhonde River Report.

9/5 Good news! It is raining hard today. The fires are out, river levels are up, fishing has been good on the rivers, and the steelhead are heading our way. See individual river reports.

8/24 Very smoky air but the Wallowa river is still a great AM fishing destination. Good surface action with sz 14-10 attractor dries, hoppers getting takes as well. If you have to breath wildfire smoke, might as well do it standing in the middle of a stream throwing drys!
