  • Wildlife

    Eagles and Osprey regularly patrol the lake in search of food. There are resident nesting pairs of these magnificent creatures including the Bald Eagle that sits high in a Cottonwood tree along the south shore- which is easy to observe.  Watching these birds fish really puts the 'awe' in awesome!

Wallowa Lake Fishin' News

The 2015 season was off to a slow start.  But things have been picking up lately.  A 2 1/2 pound Kokanee was recorded on 6/2/15 by a local in Joseph.  And more smaller kokanee are being harvested.  The average size right now is 6-8 inches.  The bigger ones are out there.  Just few and far between.  The trout fishing is good.  Quite a few big trout have been brought in, anywhere from 15-20 inches.  I have been having most of my luck with a flasher and a spin glo, tipped with maggots and using Smelly Jelly scent bait.  I have landed over 50 kokanee in the last week and a half, most of them between 6-9 inches. And I have had multiple people moored at our dock bring in buckets of smaller kokanee.  There may still be a World Record swimming around out there.  So get up here and try it out!!
