The Klamath River is known for it’s ability to continuously support strong returns of steelhead year after year. The vast majority of these fish are wild, averaging 3-4 pounds with that trophy steelhead never out of the question. The famous Klamath River “half pounders” and resident rainbows can provide exciting fishing all day long while searching for that trophy steelhead. This river is best fished by drift boat, giving the angler easy access to the most productive stretches of this legendary river. Most anglers who pursue steelhead count the number of days it takes to hook one of these revered fish but on the Klamath River it is not uncommon to hook multiple steelhead in a single day.
