Paradise Point is a 20 acre premier tent camp surrounded by National Forest,  with an incredible spey run right on the property.  We have hot showers, a covered meeting area, deluxe outdoor kitchen,  and wall tents with extremely comfortable cots and pads.   This is an ideal base camp for fishing steelhead on the Klamath river.

This is a camp facility and we please ask that you be prepared to eat meals served in a covered building without walls, fireside, in a picnic like setting.

Klamath River Spey Camp

Despite it’s remoteness Paradise Point is not hard to get to. The map above shows the closest commercial airports and Happy Camp hosts a private airstrip for the frequent flyer.  Hwy 96 follows the river and allows access and travel. Fortunately, Paradise Point does not have electricity, cell phone coverage or wi-fi.  The closest places to plug in are a 1/2 hours drive from the camp.  Remember many Bigfoot sightings have occurred near by.

Fall on the Klamath River is about as fishy as fishing gets. With runs of salmon, half-pounders and adult steelhead, the river comes alive. Wildlife abounds in a brilliant forest of firs, pines, oaks, maples, alders and madrones all showing vibrant fall colors. In the middle of this Wild and Scenic Klamath National Forest hides Paradise Point.  This is where delicious meals are prepared outdoors, by our Wild Waters’ chef in a charming covered setting.

Please note that these days begin early and end late.  The best fishing occurs when the sun is not on the water.  It is the difference of catching fish and not catching fish.  Most days in Sept. on the Klamath are hot and we plan this schedule seen above accordingly.

We have a plan B schedule which occurs under the conditions of cloud cover and rain.  This schedule can also be arranged by a guest if they care not to get up before the sun 3 days in a row.  The fishing hours can be much more casual if the clouds block out the sun during the day or if an angler is interested in lessons on casting and technique more than catching as many fish as possible.

Sept. 21st
Coffee and Breakfast will be ready to go early for the early bird fisherman.  For the rest of us we can sleep in and get breakfast at a normal hour and depart from Paradise Point.Check out is at 10 AM

Steelhead

Adult steelhead on the Klamath River average four pounds but are caught as big as 10. The Klamath River boasts huge numbers of this sought after legend and thus has historical status.

Half-Pounders

These juvenile steelhead vary in size from 12-18 inches and can rip line off the reel at awe inspiring rates. Half-Pounders pull hard, love the swung fly and splash you upon release. They are the majority of the fish population at this part of the season making them as fun of a target fishing gets.

Salmon

The King Salmon, also known as Chinook, are hard fighting challenging fish. They will eat flies and take an eight-weight to the cork.  Although they are not often caught on flies like the steelhead of the Klamath river, they will eat a fly and often, one is enough.
