Central and Eastern Oregon Fishing Reports

From ODF&W

Steelhead anglers on the lower Deschutes should concentrate on the Maupin to Warm Springs section.

Anglers report fair fishing for brown trout in East Lake.

Trout anglers on the Fall River have been catching some good size fish.

Umatilla River Coho made a strong push this past week with over 750 adults returning to Three Mile Dam.

Steelhead are starting to move into the John Day River.

The Wallowa River is a good bet for fall/winter trout and whitefish fishing.

As water temperatures cool in Willow Creek Reservoir, trout move into the shallows and get more active – anglers can do well fishing PowerBait from shore.
