Now booking fall 2017 steelhead day trips on the Grande Ronde River. Summer 2017 trout and bass trips still available.

The fall steelhead run is not too far off and now is a good time to start planning a trip to the Grande Ronde River. Fly Side Angling is currently booking trips from September to late November, 2017. Trout fishing can be excellent during the early fall, as well.

You'll appreciate the remoteness of the canyon, as the Grande Ronde River is about an hour north of Joseph and Enterprise, the Wallowa Valley's main towns. The river is about the same distance south of the Lewiston/Clarkston area. On top of excellent fishing opportunities, the scenery in the region during the fall can be down right hard to beat. As to approaching the water, swinging flies and nymphing as we float to the next swinging run is how we approach steelhead in the fall (or whatever your preference is for the day). This is a great time to perfect your spey casting and single handed casting techniques, working closely with our guides.

Additionally, Fly Side has summer availability for trout and bass. This year's water conditions will allow us to safely fish, late into into the summer. Things will start really heating up as the flows continue to drop. We expect that July and August will both be great months to be on the water and we look forward to an excellent summer for trout and bass. Day trips to the Grande Ronde River and Wallowa River are an excellent option this time of year.

Give Fly Side Angling a call (541-398-0180) or inquire by email ( about availability this summer and fall. For steelhead multi-day trips in the fall (float, fish and camp trips), contact Winding Waters River Expeditions (, a partner with Fly Side Angling. Thanks for visiting and we hope to see you on the water soon.
