Wallowa Lake Fishing
Kokanee - Open All Year
Trout - Open All Year
Wallowa lake has a healthy population of Kokanee. Though overall there have been fewer small fish caught (<8 inches) with most fish in the 12-14 inch range. At least this has been the case during the winter of 2011. If these fish survive well it should be another good summer for Kokanee.
