Weather Outlook Across Eastern Oregon: A weekend warmup is coming! Saturday and Sunday will see temperatures in the 70s and going into the 80s in places through the high desert this weekend. Forecasted winds through much of the weekend will be light, which is a welcome break from the screeching winds earlier this week.

Chickahominy

Reservoir:
This past week ODFW
removed the trout bag limit on Chickahominy because of low water levels, specifically the reservoir is less than 10% full and there is approximately 6 feet of water in the deepest locations. See the press release HERE.

I asked the ODFW fisheries biologist about Chickahominy Reservoir this week and have the following report:

The lake is accessible. The bottom of the boat ramp was about a foot or two above the water in March. ODFW does not recommend launching a large propeller driven boat out there. It is very turbid and there are some boulders in shallow water near the dam. A drift boat would be fine, and so are pontoon boats.

Krumbo Reservoir: Krumbo has been stocked with 13,000 rainbow trout during the week of April 5.

Owyhee River: Reports are that nymphing is good with flows around 100 CFS.

NORTHEAST OREGON WATERS

Wallowa River
: As of April 15th, the Wallowa has some color, but anglers are catching some steelhead, and Rob at the Joseph Fly Shoppe is reporting catches of some smolts.

The Fly Shoppe in Joseph is closed for the season, but you may reach Rob at the shop around midday on a hit or miss basis.

Remember that trout fishing on the Wallowa is now open year-round, so trout opportunities exists.

Grande Ronde River:
There are no reports for the Grande Ronde. I recommend checking in with The Joseph Fly Shoppe at (541) 432-4343 around midday before setting off for the Grande Ronde. Note that the shop is now closed for the season.

Imnaha River: Rob at The Joseph Fly Shoppe is reporting fishable river levels, and some steelhead catches this week. ODFW reports that steelhead are moving through the system, but their own creel surveys show that catches are variable.
