Steelhead returns low; season may be curtailed

Steelhead season is a cold-weather institution for Wallowa County fishermen. But this year’s steelhead run is going to be small, according to ODFW fishery biologist Kyle Bratcher.

“We’re well into the steelhead run this year and we’re getting a clearer picture of what returns will look like,” he said. “It’s going to be a pretty tough year.”
