Established in 1944, Wallowa County Grain Growers is one of the longest continuously operating businesses in Wallowa County. In keeping with its practice of changing and growing with the times, Grain Growers just celebrated its 75th anniversary, introducing a new line of user-friendly fishing tackle. Like everything else it stocks, the mostly trolling tackle--poles, reels and lures--fits the needs and budgets of most local folks. There’s not a fly rod or reel to be found. But if you want spinning gear for kokanee or crappie or you’re planning to catch trout at Marr Pond, Grain Growers can outfit you. “It’s a line of gear that won’t compete with the serious fishing and sporting goods stores”, said Terry Potratz, Grain Growers retail manager. “But it’s good quality, some is suitable for kids, and it’s pretty affordable overall. We’ve tried to offer lures that will appeal to local fish, too.”
