Conditions : WALLOWA LAKE: Trout fishing has slowed at Wallowa Lake. However, the pressure has dropped off with the end of the summer season. During the fall stocked trout have been in the lake long enough they start to learn to eat natural food. Try fishing with flies and other more natural baits. The lake has received additional rainbow trout stocking due to other area water bodies being too hot to receive fish. This means the lake has been heavily stocked with both legal-size and trophy trout.

Kokanee anglers have found some recent success, however the fish are still running on the small side. Biologists have received few reports on the kokanee fishery; however, late spring and early summer is usually best.
