Conditions : WALLOWA RIVER: The flows in the Wallowa have dropped considerably and the river is becoming easier to wade. Anglers are finding some larger fish and catch rates have been good. The best dry fly angling is in the late evening. During mid-day fishing large large attractor nymphs under an indicator can be deadly. Most spinner and bait angling techniques will also be very effective. Anglers will find fish by fishing in the slow margins of the river where trout hold up to conserve energy. Remember, below Rock Creek only adipose-fin clipped trout may be harvested. All bull trout must be released unharmed.

The Wallowa River is open for spring Chinook fishing with the closure scheduled for July 27. Most harvested fish have come from the hole at Minam State Park. Salmon angling is open from Minam State Park upstream to the mouth of the Lostine River. Anglers may retain two adipose fin-clipped spring Chinook adults and five adipose fin-clipped jacks per day, with two daily jack limits in possession. Chinook jacks are salmon between 15 and 24 inches in length. Anglers do not need to record jack catch on their combined angling tags, but it is illegal to continue fishing for jack Chinook once the adult bag limit is met. Unmarked (wild) fish must be released carefully and unharmed. A valid Columbia River endorsement is required for this fishery.
