Recent high flows have encouraged steelhead to move upstream from the lower Grande Ronde River to the Wallowa River system. Steelhead are showing up in the Washington section of the lower Grande Ronde, near Cottonwood Creek.  River conditions can be volatile during the spring months so, check conditions before heading to the river.

The bag limit for steelhead has been reduced to two fish per day through the end of April to ensure enough fish return to the hatchery facilities to meet program goals.
