Klamath River and Lower Sacramento River Report
The Lower Sacramento River is fishing well. The flows have been moving around a bit which has made for some inconsistant fishing at times. With that being said, you will have some great windows throughout the day to hammer fish. For me, the window has been mid-morning through early afternoon, followed by a big afternoon lull. Gabe Duran has been hanging around a little later than most and been getting them to eat pretty good in the late evening in certain spots of the river. Expect the fishing to only get better as the flows stabilize and the Hydropsyche Caddis hatch hits it’s stride. Small mayflies have been getting most of the love in my boat recently.. along with various summer caddis and the good old Jimmy legs.
The Klamath River is in the midst of it’s annual Salmonfly hatch and the dry fly fishing has been pretty spectacular. Don’t expect a lot of big fish up there right now.. the fish average 10-12 inches with a few good 16-18 inch fish mixed there. It’s a great change of pace to be floating down the Klamath throwing big sofa pillows at the banks to eager Juvenile steelhead.
