Grande Ronde

I may be passing through the area and wondering if the Grande Ronde in OR/WA is fishing in July? Any info is appreciated. Thanks.

Yes!!! Bring your 5/6/7 matched with an Ambush line and muddlers for some of the most fun smallmouth this side of the Miss. Then hop-over to the upper Imhana (spelling?) for some Red-bands!

I love red bands ,
I took the dfg heritage trout challenge,
I caught
the mc cloud river red band
the warner lakes red band
and the goose lakes red band,
and went into oregon,to find more
what a great journey it was...
what type of red bands do you guys have
me

They shall give up their spent bodies to the river,dark cold spirits nourish thy young.

Most likely it will be too warm in the Grand Ronde in July for Steelhead. If any, they will be at the mouth, staged in the Snake. Even the hold-overs will have migrated down-stream. March can be good depending on water level and run-off. If dead-set on the GR in July, the Smallmouth are a BLAST!!! Light gear, light pressure, surface action and some fat fish!!! Wait until latter part of September. October/November is perhaps the best for the Steelhead. Had a very successful trip last-week of October 2010. Floating lines and a mix of hatchery/unmarked fish.

Check out a blog 'fishingandhiking dot com'. Some great stories and picture of that whole area and the rivers. I think the guy now owns the rafting service at the Wallowa-Minam R junction. I found it just googling the GR a couple years ago and have been a frequent visitor ever since. Lots of great information and maybe a contact for you. Good Luck!
