Last Minute Availability - Owyhee River, Oregon
March 3, 2021
Tucked away in eastern Oregon, not far from Boise, Idaho, Oregon’s finest trophy brown trout river flows discreetly through desert rim rock and sage. It is a relatively small river but its’ honey-colored browns are anything but small, averaging 16 to 20 inches with considerably larger fish present.
Spring on Eastern Oregon's Owyhee River is a special time. As the seasons transition and the days become slightly longer and warmer, insect activity increases and the fish take notice. They begin to look up again after a long, cold winter. Skwala stoneflies, BWOs and midges are the primary target for the river's healthy population of brown trout, and anglers can have unforgettable days of dry fly fishing long before many are even considering trout fishing in the west.
