Wood River - September 12th, 2014
  • Recorded:
  • 0 ° F 
  • Fishing: Excellent
 The Wood River is bursting with grass hoppers so.....
Fish with hoppers and carey specials,  Mahoganys are also starting to show up.  October caddis pupa and seal buggars are also effective.
Water levels are low but fishing has been very good and brown trout taking a hopper is very likely.
Good Luck and have fun!
 
 
Williamson River - September 12th, 2014
  • Recorded:
  • 0 ° F 
  • Fishing: Excellent
Water levels are low on the Williamson River but water clarity is very good and fishing is excellent.  Catch and release is encouraged to help maintain these trophy sized trout!

Using small nymphs (midges, caddis) under light tippet is effective. Rubber leg stones have been working great, also. Streamer fishing with seal buggers is a great way to feel the "tug" and can work great!

Fish small size 18 and 20's in Copper John's, tricos and midges with light tippet. Rubber Leg Stones and leach patterns are effective, also.

Give us a call at 541.884.3825 if you have additional questions, or would like to give us your fishing report. Thanks!
 
 
Klamath River - September 12th, 2014
  • Recorded:
  • 0 ° F 
  • Fishing: Excellent
The Klamath River Wild and Scenic section is fishing excellent.  
Everything is open in this section and no fires are currently burning!

The section from Keno Dam to J.C. Boyle Reservoir (Topsy Reservoir) closed to fishing Monday June 16. It will re-open for fishing October 1st, 2014.
 
The Klamath River between JC Boyle Dam to JC Boyle Powerhouse Is an excellent place to dry fly fish when water levels are low (usually early mornings and late afternoons) check water flow estimates before heading out. Fishing can still be productive when water levels are up, but one will have to change fishing tactics. Dead drifting rubber leg stone flies with a small pheasant tail or copper johns can be productive. Also, swinging streamers (leach and seal bugger patterns) across the current can produce fish. 

Fish a big caddis and let it swing at the end of the drift-if the fish are picky, use a smaller fly. Also, look for mayfly hatches and match the fly accordingly. Have a fun time!
 
Rogue River - Upper - September 12th, 2014
  • Recorded:
  • 0 ° F 
  • Fishing: Excellent
Fishing for steelhead, trout and salmon are all good.
Good number of cutthroat trout this year.  
Steelhead numbers are up and chinook salmon are biting daily.
 
Beginning Sept. 1, the river above Fishers Ferry boat ramp is closed to fishing for Chinook salmon. In addition, fishing between Gold Ray and Cole Rivers Hatchery is limited to artificial flies only, any type rod and reel permitted. Please see the angling regulations for additional details.
 
Summer steelhead fishing is good. Anglers may want to try nymph patterns, or a big stonefly pattern in combination with a smaller nymph, or standard steelhead patterns. Trout fishing should be very good as well. 

Check regulations, river flow and temperature information before heading out.  Have fun this week on the river!
 
Recommended Steelhead flies:
intruders, lady caroline, october caddis pupa, stone flies, green butt skunk, egg patterns (weighted & unweighted) and copper swans.

  • Recorded:
  • 0 ° F 
  • Fishing: Excellent
Fishing for steelhead, trout and salmon are all good.
Good number of cutthroat trout this year.  
Steelhead numbers are up and chinook salmon are biting daily.

Anglers are reminded to be extremely careful when handling fish during this drought year. Fishing early in the day when water temperatures are cooler reduces stress. Always keep the fish in the water when looking for finmarks or taking photos and release fish quickly.

Summer steelhead fishing is good. Anglers may want to try nymph patterns, or a big stonefly pattern in combination with a smaller nymph, or standard steelhead patterns. Trout fishing should be very good as well. Anglers may keep up to five adipose fin-clipped rainbow trout per day. All other trout must be released unharmed.

Check regulations, river flow and temperature information before heading out.  Have fun this week on the river!
