It’s a 50 mile float beginning at Minim, which is approximately 30 miles from LaGrande, Oregon and ending in Troy, Oregon approximately 8 miles from the Oregon and Washington border. Our trip begins in the mountains at the confluence of the Minam and Wallowa Rivers at the very small town of Minim. The Grand Ronde is a beautiful free flowing river cutting it’s way through a deep canyon where it eventually flows into the Snake River. The canyon is timbered in fir and ponderosa pines enter spurts with large grassy meadows and flat benches that become our camp site’s. We begin our fishing day as we launch our drift boats and ready our rods at 9:00 am, as we drift the river your guide will steady the boat while you cast into the riffles and rocky shore lines where the trout lay and wait. At noon we’ll find a beautiful bench where we will stop and prepare a deluxe shore lunch, we remain here for about 2 hours, allowing your guide to rest his arms and you to do some shore fishing or simply sit back, relax and take in the beauty and serenity that the Grand Ronde has to offer. After lunch we are back in the drift boat’s fishing our way down to our evenings camp site, Where our camp will have been preset and awaiting our arrival, we provide large spacious tents, cot’s, shower, comfortable lounge chair’s and a bond fir where we all can exchange our stories from the days fishing. After you have made yourself at home in camp you can sit back and relax while watching our guides prepare your evening meal, which consists of Dutch oven baked breads, grilled meats, fresh tossed salads, and a variety of fresh vegetables, followed up by dessert. When you have completed you dessert you may want to return to the camp fire to relive the days event’s before turning in for the evening. In the morning you will awake to the aroma of freshly brewed coffee and our guides preparing a delicious hearty breakfast that will prepare you for another full days fishing, site seeing and a plain ole good time. The best time to make this trip is the later part of June through July. At this time the water levels are favorable for floating and the trout are close to shore feeding on a variety of fly hatches.
We have very few dates available for this trips give us a call and lets get you on the calendar.
