Grande Ronde River

Tip of the week 

Swinging has been good, but nymphing is the go-to technique.

10' single hand 7 wt. is excellent and 11' Switch and 13' Spey rods are good choices for two-handed rods.

If you are hunting for the elusive steelhead use a 12' leader for swinging, 9' leader is fine for nymphing.

Nymphing is consistently more productive than swinging, but swinging has been productive.

Seven-day forecast 

At the river, look for lows in the upper 20s to 30s and highs in the upper 40s into the 50s through the week until Thursday when 61 is the forecast high.

Friday has a 50% chance of rain, then conditions dry out and most days are partly sunny or low chance of precipitation.
