anyone have a report for steelhead in the Ontario area. I am going there for thanksgiving and need a break from the inlaws. Please help..............
Boy that brought back some memories! I fished for catfish at Fairwell Bend in 1967 when I was a freshman at TVCC. There was nothing there at the time, now there is a truck stop and motel. I know it's not stealhead but there used to be good catfishing just north of Ontatrio at the mouth of the Malhuer River where it enters the Snake. There is a park right there so access is good.If you just want to go fishing, there is decent catfishing near Fairwell Bend.
