Klamath River Fly Fishing Report

Had to shovel the boat out of the snow this morning, as we got about 6 inches last night. Wild Water’s guides have been on the Klamath, Trinity, Lower Sac and Upper Sac this week. I’d say the best news is coming from the Klamath as fish have been coming to the net on most trips from Orleans to Hornbrook. The Iron Gate stretch has the most numbers but also the most pressure, the down river fish are fresher, brighter and less educated. The day is about the hunt and finding them is way more important than what they are eating. Expect to have at least an opportunity or two at a real one as well as some fine looking half pounders.. The bobber (Jaydacator) has been finding fish on the stonefly, and for the two handers its time to swing down low and slow. The lower river is still quite high but staying clear. Every tributary is pushing water and most fish have an open door to their spawning grounds. Its a great time to come up and fish the Klamath and with the right gear, a hot lunch and a nip of whiskey you’ll stay warm enough. We have availability and would love to get you out on the river.\
