Popular angling locations include the John Day Arm, and the forebay and tailraces at John Day and McNary Dams, at the Umatilla River mouth, and at the Irrigon Fish Hatchery. While most fishing is from boats, bank anglers are successful at both dams and locations near the Oregon and Washington border. Bank anglers generally float bait with bobbers and a few plunk Spin-n-Glo, plugs, or spinners. Boat anglers pull plugs or float bait with bobbers. In most locations, the best fishing typically occurs from mid-October to late November, but can also be quite good at times in December and January. At Irrigon Hatchery, early season steelhead fishing typically runs from mid August to mid October. Steelhead fishing near the hatchery is poor when spawning salmon are present from mid October thru November, then restarts in December and continues thru March. For further information contact Pendleton District Office at (541) 276-2344 and ask for Tim Bailey, or the John Day District Office at (541) 575-1167 and ask for Tim Unterwegner or Jeff Neal.
