Lower Sac and Klamath Reports
The Lower Sac has been fishing lights out the past few weeks. With an above average run of chinook salmon this fall, the egg bite has been fantastic. There are still quite a few spawning salmon throughout the river which should keep the trout keyed in on eggs for at least a few more weeks. Aside from the round balls of protein the salmon have been dumping into the river the ‘bows have been eating midges, mayflies and caddis. It’s all good right now. Don’t miss an opportunity to get out on this river this fall – the Sac should continue to produce through November.
The Klamath River has also been fishing VERY well. With gobs of salmon below Iron Gate, eggs are the main item on the menu. The fishing has been consistant pretty much all day long with a lot of the famous “half pounders” and adult steelhead mixed in. With some more rain in the forecast, we should expect to see some of the larger steelhead moving into the system soon. The salmon anglers are starting to thin out – meaning us fly-fisher folks should have the river all to ourselves again. November and December should be excellent on the Klamath.
Here are a few snapshots of whats been going down on the river lately.
