Grande Ronde steelhead still lagging


Steelhead, such as this one caught last weekend, are getting active in the Grande Ronde River, offering fantastic fishing when water conditions are right.

FISHING -- Despite much anticipation because of a surge of water last week coupled with good numbers of fish moving past Lower Granite Dam, angler reports from the Grande Ronde River over the weekend left much to be desired.

Catch rates were miserably low in the river between Troy and Schumaker, according to anglers I surveyed as well as the fishing info clearinghouse at Boggan's Oasis.

But the luck is going to change soon.  

Maybe this morning.
