Wenaha Road Report
« on: April 28, 2021, 08:24:57 PM »
Anyone have any road condition reports for trying to access the Wenaha for spring bear? I know Troy is probably the only option this time of year. I was planning to go over Memorial Day weekend and the last week of spring bear because Iím told snow blocks all the access from anywhere but the SE end of the unit, but figured maybe someone would know of a way into the unit Iíve not seen on OnX yet.

I was in lick creek last weekend and there was still tons of snow. While its been dry, it hasn't been all that warm. Snow is coming off slow.

It's gonna be a late one! Been in the Wenaha (OR side) a couple times, Mt Emily, and Minam this year. You could just barely see the crapper roof at Moss Springs two weeks ago. There's roads directly behind my house where I still can't get a wheeled machine through. These are the years I dream of having a tag...

I'd call the store in Troy. They're good about this kind of info usually. My guess is you'd have to go around.

Hoping someone can comment. Leaving tomorrow from the west side. Planning on driving HWY 12 over then on to Asotin and down 129 to Troy and then back up and in. Any reason I wonít be able to make it to Three Forks area on that route?

I am pretty sure you will be fine til at least 3 forks.  After that it's a crap shoot

I get there Wednesday and staying through Sunday or maybe Monday morning. Headed however far past Three Forks I can get and still find a decent campsite. Will be in a Blue Ram 3500 with a canopy and bull bar.

Sliverslinger, Ekhunter88...I will be in there area this weekend as well checking things out and spending some time behind the glass hopefully.  Any intel you care to share in the meantime of road conditions/snow levels, if possible, would be greatly appreciated.
