River and Stream Fishing

2 jetboats fishing on the Snake River in Hells canyonFrom small mountain streams to the wild and scenic rivers, anglers are active year-round fishing across the Forest. Most of the streams have native cold water fish (red band trout, bull trout) and stocked species (brook trout, rainbow trout). The Snake River offers both warm species (crappie, small mouth bass) and cold water species like sturgeon, steelhead and trout.
