The steelhead have started to show up on the mid klamath and the lower klamath is producing good salmon and steelhead action. Here is a copy of the report from our friends at the e-ne nuck campground: Hi Friends of E Ne Nuck:
Fishing is about as good as it gets for Salmon and steelhead. This is shaping up to be a very good year. The Campground has been filling up by Friday afternoon, and I suspect we will have great fishing through mid October. It’s Monday afternoon and all the weekenders have cleared out and I have 3 vacant sites. Good times to arrive are Sunday through Thursday.
The hardware fishermen are taking adult steelhead and the fly fishermen are getting half pounders. The lead mine is producing the best looking, hardest fighting salmon we have seen. They still have a purple shine to them just like an ocean fish. I caught a 13 pounder late Sunday afternoon and cooked it last evening foiled with onions, fresh garlic, and butter, and it was absolutely prime. We had been getting kings from about 10 to 18 pounds, but we started noticing some huge fish Sunday, and yesterday evening I caught an ocean bright 34 pounder. The fishing has been getting better by the day, and the quality of the fish is the best we have seen. I’ll let the pictures speak for themselves.
We have been out fishing in our new jet boat on the lower Klamath, and have had some great success also. Here is a shot of the boat:
The lower Klamath is a hoot to fish with jet boat access to all the bars. We can scoot quickly from bar – to – bar and probe quickly while locating the fish. Our new 22 foot Rogue jet can carry up to 6 guests plus staff, and has plenty of room for gear. Another great feature of the Lower Klamath is that we are fishing for both Klamath fish and Trinity fish, since we are below the Trinity confluence. More fish is a good thing!
Give us a call, and let’s get out on the river while the fishing is good and the weather is comfortable! Doug
