Fishing remains pretty good on the upper Klamath

The Fly Shop

Report Date:

Cold in the morning, warming in the afternoon, the fishing remains pretty good on the upper Klamath. The storms and runoff will eventually blow the river out above Interstate 5 though. Rubberlegs and smaller nymphs are getting the job done. There are still plenty of fish and some larger ones showing up. If you are swinging flies, think slow and deep. Try fishing intruders with sink tips, orange and purple are good colors besides the standard black and blue. Hartwick's Hosers are great patterns, and Bret's Klamath Intruders are tailor made for this river. Don't forget your chains!
