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!

Williamson River

The fall fishing is staying good throughout the Klamath Basin, with special emphasis on the Williamson River.  This time of year, a variety of techniques such as swinging streamers, nymphing, and dry flies are all being utilized to help fool some of the wariest fish.  I’m in the process of setting up our wintertime fly fishing and fly tying classes.  Keep checking back, the schedule will be posted shortly.

Fall Fly Fishing on the Williamson River

The Rogue River needs to be remembered this time of year.  We still have  beautiful weather, and plenty of steelhead to make for a fun day.  The fishing should get better and better all the way through November.

Just want to inform everyone my rates are still reflecting the 2014 season.  We’re having a problem updating the site.  The rates for 2015 are the same as 2014.  Hope to hear from you soon.  Tight lines!

Southern Oregon Fly Fishing Williamson River/Wood River Agency and Klamath Lakes

The Wood River opened at the end of last month, and it’s fishable.  Most of the fishing will be concentrated on the lower river, with most the focus close to the mouth.  Fishing subsurface is producing the best bite….but certain times mixed with the right weather is producing some dry fly action.  There are definitely fish to be caught, and the Wood River is a beautiful place to spend a day.

The upper Williamson River also opened late last month, and the lower Williamson will open later in May.  I’m very excited for opening weekend, and I suspect lots of big fish moving into the river early.  Agency and Upper Klamath Lake have been giving up some big fish lately, especially around Rocky Point and the mouths of the Wood and Williamson.  Many of the feeder creeks into Upper Klamath Lake are now open for the season, and I have private access to some of these wonderful fisheries.

Thanks to everyone who made 2013 a great success and hopefully I get to show you what Southern Oregon fly fishing has to offer!
