Northeast Oregon starts off with some snow and rain showers on Friday, becoming sunny for the weekend and through the first half of next week. High temperatures will be in the 40s through much of the time, except Saturday that will peak in the high 30s. Nightly lows in the 20s.

Southeast Oregon remains dry, with high temperatures in the 40s into next week, and nightly lows in the 20s and 30s.

Wallowa Lake was stocked in August with 5400 legal size trout and 180 trophy trout. Rob at the The Joseph Fly Shoppe thinks Wallowa Lake is one of the best in Oregon right now for stocked trout. There is some action on the south side of the lake with small dry flies – anything like a parachute Adams, Purple Haze and Elk Wing Caddis are taking fish.

Jubilee Lake: Jubilee Lake, in the Umatilla National Forest was stocked with 2000 legal size trout.

Wallowa River: Rob at the Joseph Fly Shoppe reports Wallowa trout fishing has been good for trout up through now. Nymphing, soft hackles, and lures have been taking trout, including some larger trout.

As for the coming weeks, Rob comments that the cold weather starts to slow down the trout fishing, and when temperatures drop below 42 degrees, the fish begin to shut off.

The Wallowa River steelhead run is slightly later than the run on the Grande Ronde, as the steelhead wait for higher river levels.

Grande Ronde River: The very latest from the Joseph Fly Shoppe reports that ODFW Creel Checkers in the Troy area have only seen 1 or 2 fish caught recently, a change from the very encouraging numbers from a few weeks back.

The steelhead seem to be moving through in pods, so it is a matter of timing. If angling at a time the pod is moving through, steelheading can be quite good. ODFW reports that steelhead are showing up at the hatchery.

Check out Glenn's detailed report and forecast in this week's paid version for Chinook and Steelhead Members both!
