July Steelhead on the Way to the Deschutes
Numbers of steelhead both hatchery and wild are starting to climb on the Columbia River as they head for the Deschutes River. Water temperatures at the Dalles Dam on the Columbia are around 65 degrees. Water temperatures on the Deschutes near Madras are closer to 57 degrees. This cool water will warm as it gets closer to the mouth where it meets the Columbia river.
