Winter brings, Winter steelhead

As the cold weather comes in, so do the Winter fish.  Its time to break out the big guns and the good jackets.  So far in our region mother nature has been fair with a good mix of heavy rain followed by some nice Winter sunshine.  The Klamath remains in great shape below the dam and tributaries are running clear at the moment.  We’ve been spending some time on the Rogue as well.  Also a bit of driving, looking for clear water.  We welcome you to take a look at how the winter has started off for us….But as for us we are heading back out.

These fish are so mad when you pierce there lip.

Not only has the Klamath been great fishing this winter, but every day is providing a stunning sunset.
