Grande Ronde River

Tip of the week 
Techniques 

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 

The weather outlook for the week is highs in the 40s and lows in the 30s with altering rainy days and sunny days.
Water peaked just below 6K cfs late last week, but immediately started dropping, which was all the fish needed to get back on the bite. Conditions should remain excellent this week since the water should continue dropping.
