Fall is here. Cool nights and much needed rain have receded forest fires along the Klamath River. The smoke is finally gone and fish are being caught throughout the river. Salmon, steelhead and half pounders are finding the net’s of our guides. Swinging flies with floating lines has been very productive. We love the traditional flies but those super pounders seem to chase anything that moves. Flows are a bit higher than normal coming out of Iron Gate dam and a second flow increase is predicted. Its a great time to go fishing in the State of Jefferson.

Jerry and a nice Klamath river steelhead. First couple hours with a spey rod in hand.

Bob, Working it…
A beautiful Klamath river chromer. This fish ate so close to the surface we saw it, and it was furious about being fooled.
A little late morning shade…
An extra bright 1/2 lber. When I hold these guys I like to think that instead of them being a small steelhead, I’m a giant human. It makes me laugh…
…and getting it done
We netted this king and it bit a hole in the net. Literally
Anthony with a nice wild fish. What a day!
