Rogue River - Upper - October 1st, 2014
  • Recorded:
  • 76 ° F 
  • Fishing: Excellent
Make sure to check the regulations as many of the rules changed September 1st. 

Fish an ugly bug with a copper swan or prince combo is a good way to get into fish.
 
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 has been very good as well. 

Recommended Steelhead flies:
intruders, lady caroline, october caddis pupa, stone flies, green butt skunk, egg patterns (weighted & unweighted) and copper swans.
 
 
Klamath River - October 1st, 2014
  • Recorded:
  • Cloudy
  • 70 ° F 
  • Fishing: Excellent
The section from Keno Dam to J.C. Boyle Reservoir (Topsy Reservoir) is open for fishing as of October 1st, 2014. 

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. 

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!

Williamson River - October 1st, 2014
  • Recorded:
  • Cloudy
  • 70 ° F 
  • Fishing: Excellent
Catching many BIG fish currently!

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.

Flows are extremely low and water clarity is very good for this time of year as currently no flow of dark, tannin colored water is coming from the Klamath Marsh.
 
ODFW encourages catch and release in this fishery to promote trophy sized fish as the Williamson River is managed for trophy redband trout. 
 
Fishing for redband trout is best from the confluence of the Sprague River to slack water above Modoc Point Bridge. Most effective fishing occurs from a drift boat as little public access occurs. 
Mayflies and caddis, leech and wooly bugger patterns work well.

Wood River - October 1st, 2014
  • Recorded:
  • 0 ° F 
  • Fishing: Great
Look for the Mahogany Dun hatches (especially during overcast days, which are predicted during the week).  Fish light tipped 5x or 6x with a long leader and small fly (size 18, or 20): Make sure not to get too close and spook fish.  Some fish can still be picked up with hoppers really close to the bank, but fishing will shift towards the Mahogany’s soon.

With the overcast weather in the forecast look for some good dry fly activity!

Fishing for redband trout is best from the confluence of the Sprague River to slack water above Modoc Point Bridge. Most effective fishing occurs from a drift boat as little public access occurs. Most anglers hire a guide to fish this river due to the challenge of catching fish. Most anglers fly fish this section of river. Numerous insect hatches are occurring including various mayflies and caddis. Leech and wooly bugger patterns work well, also.
