Klamath River Fishing Guide that provides Salmon, Trout, and Steelhead fishing adventures on the Klamath, Smith, Rogue, Umpqua, Coquille, and Chetco river systems. We employ all techniques while pursuing Salmon, Trout, and Steelhead in the Northwest including side-drifting, fly fishing, back trolling, back bouncing, casting spoons/spinners, and float fishing.
Despite high and muddy river conditions the Klamath River Fishing is still going strong. We have been getting some nice steelhead side-drifting yarn and eggs. The fish have been hanging out in some of the softer seams but cant resist the sight of a snack when it goes by.
Sorry for the delay on the fishing report, but we have been extremely busy here on the Klamath River. The Klamath River fishing is in the middle of a transition and we are finding fish in some of the winter holes. The salmon are pretty much done spawning and the steelhead are starting to spread out. We have been getting fish on fly's, yarn, eggs, and plugs. You pick your technique and we will put you on the fish. We have a few new guides working for us this year with some open dates so give us a call today.
We have been steady slaying the fish on the Klamath River for the last three weeks. I have been seeing some impressive numbers and the larger fish are finally starting to show up. The river has been muddy and high but we still have had some amazing days. We have been getting 30 to 50 fish a day with a few nice adults. The fish are gobbling eggs, slamming the fly's and smacking the yarn balls. I have a few days left in November so call me and lets go catch some fish.
Despite lots of rain and muddy waters, the Klamath River continues to produce. If you wait for perfect weather conditions to fish then you will miss out on many opportunities to land that fish of a lifetime. The Klamath River fishing is hard to beet this time of year because you can target both salmon and steelhead. We fished the other day after 2 inches of rain and the water was black from the recent wildfires and hooked the LARGEST steelhead I have ever seen in this section of the Klamath River. We caught a record fish last year weighing 12 lbs and this fish made that record winner look like a dink. Based on the length and girth of this fish I am guessing it was 15 to 18 pounds. Chrome bright and fatter than a football this fish jumped and fought harder than anything I have ever seen. We were chasing it through a very rocky area and the line got cut. It was a fish of a lifetime, I have been beating on the Klamath River for 35 years and have never got a fish like that. The guy was devastated but I guess that's what keeps us on the pursuit, keep your tip up and don't horse him.
The Klamath River Fishing is heating up, we have been boating 30 to 50 fish a day. The fish are coming in as a mixed bag, salmon and steelhead both. The combo trips this time of year are awesome, were else can you go right now and catch both species? We have been living the dream here on the Klamath River and will continue to do so for a couple of months. You still have time to check it out, give us a call today.
