Idaho Fish Report

Fishing for bass and catfish has been good

by OR Department of Fish & Wildlife Staff

Fishing for bass and catfish has been good recently in Oxbow and Hells Canyon reservoirs.‌

During the summer, flows through the reservoirs can vary greatly throughout the day as dam operators respond to increased power demands. Anglers will need to be conscious of these changes and be ready to change locations in response to changes in water flows.
