During the past three days we have been scouting the mid Klamath and taking a few commercial trips between Persido and Green Riffle. The water clarity is still a bit off but the algae levels seem to be a lot lower. We have had some cooler weather and a thunder shower yersterday. More rain is predicted for the Oct 4-7 dates and water conditions should continue to improve. We had an amazing day on Thursday hooking several half pounders and two adult steelhead in a short three hour run (tight line swung-fly presentations). The fish put on a great show with aireal acrobatics and strong fights. Yesterday was a bit slower but we still got a few fish. I feel good about telling people that the Mid Klamath is fishable now, but I still dont think we have the large runs quite yet that returning Klamath fishermen are used to.
Till later, Doug
