SNAKE RIVER STEEL­HEAD

Outdoor Life - - FEATURES -

if you’d like to ex­pe­ri­ence steel­head heaven, head to Hells Canyon. Here, the Snake River sep­a­rates Ore­gon and Wash­ing­ton (on the west side) from Idaho (on the east). Hells Canyon is the deep­est river gorge in the coun­try, so make sure you are phys­i­cally able to make the hike. For easy ac­cess, try Heller Bar boat ramp near Rogers­burg, Wash. You can wade-fish a large swath of the river from this point. Or go 80 miles south and hike down a path that leads from the Hells Canyon Dam. Steelie fish­ing is great from fall through Fe­bru­ary.
