Klamath Lake - November 12th, 2014
  • Recorded:
  • Sunny
  • 60 ° F 
  • Fishing: Great
November is possibly the best month to fish Upper Klamath Lake.  Eat your Wheaties.  This is a true still water fishery and your casts must be on target in order to be productive.
Trophy trout are the reward!
 
Klamath River - November 12th, 2014
  • Recorded:
  • Sunny
  • 60 ° F 
  • Fishing: Excellent
The section from Keno Dam to J.C. Boyle Reservoir (Topsy Reservoir) is open to fishing! Deaddrifting sculpin and muddler minnows under an indicator is successful. Also, fish are keying in on and mayfly and midge emergers. Fish a sculpin pattern, either stripping it, or dead drifting.   

Fish a little smaller with the colder temperatures. Small midge and mayfly patterns are picking up fish. Be careful wading and have fun!
 
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. Swinging streamers (leach and seal bugger patterns) across the current can produce fish. 

 
 
 
Rogue River - Upper - November 12th, 2014
  • Recorded:
  • Sunny
  • 60 ° F 
  • Fishing: Excellent
Steelhead on the Rogue River has been very productive.  The summer run of fish is still very strong.  We anticipate fishing well into December on the upper river.

Fish an ugly bug with a copper swan or prince combo is a good way to get into fish. Steelhead patterns and eggs are a great way to catch fish, also.  

Anglers are reminded that beginning Nov. 1, the river opens to the use of lures and bait as well as flies upstream of the Shady Cove boat ramp to the deadline at Cole Rivers Hatchery. Also beginning Nov. 1, from Fishers Ferry boat ramp upstream to the Shady Cove boat ramp, the river opens to the use of lures as well as flies. Consult the synopsis for more information. Anglers may want to try nymph patterns, or a big stonefly pattern in combination with a smaller nymph, or standard steelhead patterns. All other trout must be released unharmed. Always keep the fish in the water when looking for fin marks or taking photos and release fish quickly. Only adipose fin-clipped fish may be harvested.
 
Releases from Lost Creek Reservoir have dropped for the fall. The release from Lost Creek Reservoir was 1085 cfs and the water temperature was 43F the morning of Nov 10. The water temperature at Gold Ray was averaging about 48F. 

The count to the hatchery as of 11/12/14
 
Spring Chinook = 8,689
Fall Chinook = 111
Coho = 141
Summer Steelhead = 1,419

The section from Keno Dam to J.C. Boyle Reservoir (Topsy Reservoir) is open for fishing as of October 1st, 2014. The section from Keno Dam to J.C. Boyle Reservoir (Topsy Reservoir) is open to fishing! Deaddrifting sculpin and muddler minnows under an indicator is successful. Also, fish are keying in on caddis and mayfly emergers.   

The Klamath River Wild and Scenic section is fishing excellent.  
Everything is open in this section and no fires are currently burning!

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. 

Wild and Scenic: 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!
