SNAKE RIVER below HELLS CANYON RESERVOIR: trout, steelhead, salmon, bass

The Snake River fishes well for small mouth bass during the summer with anglers often catching more than 30 fish per day. Trout fishing will pick up as the summer progresses into fall. Steelhead season will open on Sept. 1 but fish won’t be available in numbers until later in the season.

Only barbless hooks may be used on this stretch of the Snake River while fishing for salmon, steelhead and sturgeon, and anglers should consult the current Oregon Sport Fishing Regulations for other rules that may apply.
