The fall season on the Klamath River has been phenomenal. Special thanks to our loyal clients and to our steelhead guides, Anthony Carruesco, Jim Roberts, Carl Mogerley, Andy Marx, Brian Slusser, Ellis Augustini, Matt Formento, Chuck Volckhausen and John Rickard. The Klamath has been good to us! Regardless, if we were swinging runs or side-drifting, the steelhead were plentiful and on the bite! October flew by before we could show off our photos. Check them out.
Carl Mogerley, takes a few minutes to teach a cool kid in Happy Camp how to swing flies, (barefoot). The next lesson came quickly after the photo and was on the importance of catch and release. GOOD JOB CARL! We loved hearing this story.
All smiles on the Klamath River.
Outta the boat, getting the job done!
PBR, a steelhead, and a smile. Must be the Klamath River.
Kiss the camera!!!
Damion, one of my oldest friends. So glad these guys made it out from Colorado.
This a one of my favorite photos of the fall. Thats my boys from Colorado! We had some fun this day. Photo taken from Johns boat. My best friend and business partner in California, my best friends from Colorado and my dad all out for a day of fishing on the Klamath. That is what its all about! THANKS AGAIN John for voluntarily helping out this day, I can’t tell you how awesome it was to have your help and company!!!! Especially in this busy time!
Thats a real one.
Brother number 2
Great to have these two out for there first steelhead experience. You two get the award for “the most excited to be on the Klamath”. These guys caught lots of fish with a number of our guides. Not once did we hear about sore arms. I could tell there cheeks were getting sore from smiling though.
Out with your buddies! Its not the first show for this crew. I fully understand why this is worth doing every year! Thanks again Jim for putting this together.
Theres that smile that didn’t go away for 5 days.
Does that not look like a Trinity fish?
What a team right here! The Giants whooped some ass this night.
Alex, not bad for your first day!
and then this happened…..
and then this happened….
Its easy for the bobber rods to get tired… give them a rest and break out the spey rod.
King Salmon, looking good!
and another first!
Catching em in the classic water.
Looks like it was good idea to try that spot again.
Chicken bone. Theres a story behind this. Look into it!
And the bones said, “big steelhead right here, keep casting.”
Bob Martin the “Klamath river guru” taking some tips and putting a hog in the net! Good work…
In memory of Bill Lowe we all went out and had some fun!
Special thanks to Michelle Lowe for having us a part of this wonderful event.

It was truly an honor to host the Bill Lowe Masters of Steelhead River Camp at Paradise Point. The Master of Cool.
Great food Kurt Colgan!!! Tight Lines Cafe.
Meet Jesse, part of the Colorado crew!! John did this to him, and now he won’t stop talking about it!
The “big dog”, Phil Volckhausen. We get to the river and he jumped right in Johns boat. Thanks so much again John!!!!! My dad had a great time fishing with you. This day was so special to me.
Awesome overnight river camp.
“Lets swing at first light?” or play chess and drink coffee until noon then swing a run.
Swung up a nice one on Carl Mogerley’s beautifully tied fly that we can’t show you.
(it’s not a secret fly or anything… it’s just in the tree on the other side of the river.)
Unreal fall colors on the Klamath River. Taking a break between runs.

Brian, thanks so much for your help this fall. Great work dude!!!!
In a time when we were crazy busy, our guides stepped up to the plate and hit home run after home run. What a solid crew this fall, each and every one of you rocked this venue like The Rolling Stones rock a house party. This is a special thanks from Chuck and John to all the guides that helped us out this October. We could not have done this without you guys. On time, prepared, professional, and putting fish in the net! EVERYDAY!!!!!!! We love seeing you guys out on the river doing your thing and doing it well. We couldn’t imagine a Klamath river without all our friends surrounding us.
