Columbia Gorge Fishing Report (1.25.16)

Fishing Report

Short and sweet, and maybe the last report for a few weeks as not much is changing and it’s getting repetitive…


Winter Steelhead:  Rivers go up, rivers go down.  Fishing is hot, then its not.  It’s all about what you make of it.  If you have a decent amount of skill, then it’s all up to luck and how much time you can put on the water.  That’s really all there is to it.  There are plenty of steelhead in every river right now and there will be plenty of them through March.

Rainbow Trout fishing is still fabulous right now on the Deschutes.  Fish are starting to really key in on Skwala nymphs, while Blue Wing Olives are being taken in the back eddies, and sculpins are being eaten on the swing.


As always, we are happy to talk fishing any time.  Give us a call if you have any specific questions on local rivers, gear, and tactics, or if you just want some encouragement to get out of the office.
