It’s a 50 mile float beginning at Minim, which is approximately 30 miles from LaGrande, Oregon and ending in Troy, Oregon approximately 8 miles from the Oregon and Washington border.
Our trip begins in the mountains at the confluence of the Minim and Wallowa Rivers at the very small town of Minim. The Grand Ronde is a beautiful free flowing river cutting it’s way through a deep canyon where it eventually flows into the Snake River. The canyon is timbered in fir and ponderosa pines enter spurts with large grassy meadows and flat benches that become our camp site’s. Here is a quick video sharing some of the campsites and fishing experiences of 2010. Enjoy…
The fishing day on the Grand Ronde begins as we launch our drift boats and ready our rods at 9:00 am, as we drift the river your guide will steady the boat while you cast into the riffles and rocky shore lines where the trout lay and wait. At noon we’ll find a beautiful bench where we will stop and prepare a deluxe shore lunch, we remain here for about 2 hours, allowing your guide to rest his arms and you to do some shore fishing or simply sit back, relax and take in the beauty and serenity that the Grand Ronde has to offer. After lunch we are back in the drift boat’s fishing our way down to our evenings camp site, Where our camp will have been preset and awaiting our arrival, we provide large spacious tents, cot’s, shower, comfortable lounge chair’s and a bond fir where we all can exchange our stories from the days fishing.
There are only a few days on our calendar open to flyfish the Grand Ronde. If you are interested in fishing one of Oregon’s forgotten rivers give us a call. Booking for 2011 has already began. 🙂
