Conditions : WALLOWA RIVER: The Wallowa River has been fishing well for larger trout. Catch rates on fin-clipped trout have also been good and anglers are encouraged to harvest these fish. For fly anglers, October caddis’ are on the river and trout are keying in on these large snacks. The best dry fly fishing is in the late evening. During mid-day nymph fishing will produce the most fish. Most spinner and bait fishing techniques also will be very effective.

Remember, below Rock Creek only adipose-fin clipped trout may be harvested. All bull trout must be released unharmed. Angling for whitefish (a member of the trout family) can be very good in the fall. Use small gear fished in the slow deep runs. Whitefish in the Wallowa are often large and can exceed 18 inches. Trout season closes on Oct. 31.

The Wallowa is also open to steelhead fishing as of Sept. 1. While a few fall fish are caught every year, the main run will not show in mass till late winter.
