HELLS CANYON RESERVOIR: trout, crappie, bass, catfish

Approximately 500 steelhead have been outplanted into the reservoir, the expected total for this year. Per the Sportfishing Regulations, these are considered trout and no Combined Harvest Card or Columbia Basin Endorsement are required.

SNAKE RIVER below HELLS CANYON RESERVOIR: trout, steelhead, salmon, bass

The Snake River is closed to angling for fall Chinook salmon as of Nov. 17. Steelhead fishing is on and fish are available to anglers. Most of the Snake River steelhead stocks are lagging this year so fishing may be a bit slower. Steelhead will be available into the spring when the fishery closed on April 30.

Only barbless hooks may be used on this stretch of the Snake River while fishing for salmon, steelhead and sturgeon, and anglers should consult the 2015 Oregon Sport Fishing Regulations for other rules that may apply.

Updated information on flow levels

SNAKE RIVER (above Brownlee Reservoir): channel catfish, flathead catfish, smallmouth bass

No recent reports.
