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.

Hey folks,  sorry the posts kind of disappeared, but life got a little sidetracked!  We’re still here and as happy as ever!  Well anyways, the rivers are low and clear, but the fishing is GREAT!!!  The Hex’s started early on the Williamson, and are in full swing!  We’re already picking a few fish up on hoppers on the Wood, but majority of the bigger fish seem to be in the lower river still eating leech imitations!  Hope to see you on the water soon!  Tight lines!
