Hexagenia Mayfly, Williamson River, Oregon


Klamath Lake

As the temperatures increase, the big migratory fish of Klamath Lake and Agency Lakes are finding refuge in the cooler waters of the Williamson River, Wood River, and many feeder stream of the Klamath Basin.  This time of the season is one of my favorites because we can target enormous Redband Trout in the rivers or lakes and resident Brown Trout on the Wood River….it all depends on the clients personal taste.  We also have a great Salmon Fly hatch on the Rogue River.  If dry fly fishing interests you more, the Hexagenia Mayflies are coming off on the Williamson!

August 24 Report

Fly fishing report for Williamson River, Wood River, Klamath Lake

Sorry everyone who has been calling for reports.  We’ve been very busy lately, but here it is.  I’ll post some new pictures in the near future.

Both rivers are fishing great.   Swinging and dead-drifting flies on the Williamson are both producing fish.  Lots of big fish are present in both rivers.  Remember to fish slow and fluorocarbon leaders/tippets are a must in the clear water.  There’s still good numbers of fish in the lower Wood.  Fish between Petric channel and the mouth.

Williamson River & Wood River Fly Fishing Report- July 15, 2012


Williamson River Frog Water

Both rivers are fishing great!  There’s plenty of fish in both rivers to have some fun.  Swinging small streamers seem to be taking majority of the fish.  Dead-drifting small nymphs is also producing a few.  The Hex hatch has been sporadic, but we have been picking up some nice fish when their looking up.

Fun on the Wood
