Klamath River - December 5th, 2015
  • Recorded:
  • Cloudy
  • 50 ° F 
  • Fishing: Excellent
The section from Keno Dam to J.C. Boyle Reservoir (Topsy Reservoir) is open to fishing! Small midges! 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. Coolers temperatures in the forecast--look to fish smaller midges to less active fish.  It can be difficult to hold onto the bigger fish with small hooks, so be patient.

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 - January 5th, 2015
  • Recorded:
  • Cloudy
  • 56 ° F 
  • Fishing: Excellent
One Winter Steelhead has arrived! Look for Steelhead feeding on eggs behind spawning Coho. Steelhead on the Rogue River has been very productive.  With the recent rains, more fish have pushed into the upper water.  

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.  

The river has dropped from the high flows of last week but remains turbid. The release from Lost Creek Reservoir will drop from 6,000 to 4,800 cfs by Dec. 31. Interestingly, the water leaving the dam is turbid. 

Inflows to Lost Creek Reservoir peaked Dec. 20-21 at levels higher than all post-dam years except 1996-1997. The reservoir is apparently still passing the high water from last week’s storm. Water clarity in the Rogue may be affected for an extended period of time.

Normally the river between Cole Rivers Hatchery and Big Butte Creek is a high water fishing refuge, an area that remains clear even when the rest of the watershed is high and muddy. As of Tuesday morning this reach remains turbid.

The flow at Gold Ray was 6,340 cfs on Tuesday morning. The temperature dropped from 46F to 43F with the start of the cold snap this week.

As of Dec 30, 3,088 summer steelhead had entered Cole Rivers Hatchery, 176 new fish for the week. The hatchery reports that a winter steelhead entered the facility this week as well.

 
 
Klamath Lake - December 4th, 2014
  • Recorded:
  • Cloudy
  • 55 ° F

November/December is possibly the best months 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!

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.
