Steelhead fishing has been quite good on the Wallowa River
by OR Department of Fish & Wildlife Staff
Steelhead fishing has been quite good on the Wallowa River. There should be good steelhead fishing opportunities throughout the spring before the flows increase from snow melt. Drifting jigs under bobbers can be an effective way of catching steelhead in the Wallowa River.
Fishing for trout and mountain whitefish can be good all year in the Wallowa River. Drifting flies or casting spinners are effective ways to catch trout in this river. Anglers are reminded that wild steelhead and bull trout cannot be harvested and must be released.
