Conditions : OWYHEE RIVER: Water releases below the dam have been around 29 cfs according to the USGS stream data and the water clarity has been fairly good when it isn’t raining or snowing. Fly-fishing higher up in the canyon has been productive and some have had success with small dry flies matching the hatches that have been occurring. Water clarity can fluctuate throughout the day so having a ride range of flies or lures can increase success during fall/winter fishing on the Owyhee River.

ODFW and volunteers recently conducted brown trout spawning surveys on the Lower Owyhee River and found brown trout actively spawning. The majority of the spawning is occurring higher up in the river but there were fish spawning down as low as the concrete bridge hole so users are asked to avoid walking in and around actively spawning trout and redds. Spawning areas can be easily identified by the cleaned up gravel in riffles and in other areas that contains smaller gravel.

Upper - No recent fishing reports, but fishing is expected to be slow.

About: - Owyhee River may be Idaho's and Oregon's most secluded river. Hidden among thousands of square miles of remote canyons and sagebrush desert where Idaho, Nevada, and Oregon meet, the river was named for a group of Hawaiians who disappeared up the river in 1810. Five different stretches of the Owyhee are known for their whitewater. The Rome to Lake Owyhee section is a popular intermediate run, with a couple of drops rated up to Class IV. The Rome launch site has excellent access for two-wheel drive vehicles. Overnight camping, potable water, and toilet facilities are available.
  • brown trout and hatchery rainbow trout
  • smallmouth bass
  • channel catfish

Misc Info: - ODFW conducted spawning surveys in 2012; the Owyhee River below Owyhee Dam on Nov. 29-30 and Dec. 8-9. A total of 1,488 brown trout redds were counted for a density of 197.3 redds per mile. Only in 2009 and 2010 were more redds counted.
