Let us introduce you to our home waters. We at The Fly Fishing Place were fortunate to have been born quite by accident in this magnificent part of the country well over a half century (ouch) ago, and every day we are blessed with the knowledge that this is one of the great places in the world to live, love, work and fly fish.
Unlike many other great trout and steelhead meccas, Northeast Oregon is a long way from metropolitan areas and large-jet airports, and only the determined fly fishers can get here. We welcome those with the fortitude, inner strength and patience to make the journey! Drop us a line anytime and stop in for a visit the next time you are in our beautiful corner of the fly fishing world.
THE WENAHA RIVER
The Wenaha River in Northeast Oregon is a tributary of the Grande Ronde River. The Wenaha begins at the confluence of the North and South Fork Wenaha Rivers and flows about 22 river miles through the rugged canyons of the Wenaha-Tucannon Wilderness in the Blue Mountains before joining the Grande Ronde River just above Troy, Oregon.
Almost entirely within the wilderness boundaries, the Wenaha is one of Oregon’s most undisturbed and pristine rivers, and access is limited to hiking trails.
The Wenaha steelhead fishery is limited to the 7 mile stretch from the Grande Ronde upstream to Crooked Creek. This hike-in fishery is accessible by the trailhead near Troy. Steelhead season runs from September 1 through April 15 and only adipose-fin clipped steelhead may be kept.
HOME WATERS: THE GRANDE RONDE RIVER The Grande Ronde River is born of mountain snows in the Blue Mountains of Northeast Oregon and embarks on a 200-mile circular journey to join the Snake River in Southeast Washington. This is a serious steelhead river....Read more about the Grande Ronde River!
HOME WATERS: THE WALLOWA RIVER The beautiful Wallowa River runs about 50 miles from its outlet on the north end of Wallowa Lake at the foot of the Wallowa Mountains – rightly called ‘The Alps of the West’- in Northeast Oregon to its confluence with the Grande Ronde River....Read more about the Wallowa River!
