According to a recent news article, the Minam Steelhead Train might be derailed. Reader James Fox sent us a note, and recommended concerned anglers contact Janet Dodson (Union County Tourism) at 1-800-848-9969 or Mark Davidson (Union County Commissioner) at 541-963-1001.
Our pal Rick Gersbach, who allowed us to use his photos, had the following to say about the train:
When I visited the Stealhead train there was a sense, even then, that it might be a bit of an ephemeral thing. There was a little competition on the river from the other train riders, and it is a little hard to be sneaky about what you are doing, because everybody sees where you get on and off. There were definitely fish there, but the best part, hand down was the scenery. The canyon with all of the ice and snow. It was very surreal.
