Now, Here is a quick report on the fishing prior to my hasty departure for Thanksgiving celebrations at Gram and Gramps place. We fished Saturday with two new guests (Chris and Sean) as a significant storm moved into the North part of the state. In spite of rising rivers, increasing rain, and logs passing us on the river (floating tree stumps can do a nice job fouling your line!), we got fish!
Here are two pictures:
However, we shut down the game for Sunday, when since the Klamath flows rose to over 6000cfs at Orleans.
The good news is that we have a stable weather pattern predicted over the 10 day forcast. I would expect to see some new fish and great fishing in the Mid-Klamath area as the river drops. The post Thanksgiving week might be one of the golden windows of opportunity. Does anyone have a fly tied with Turkey feather in the recipe? I am considering accepting a booking for the three days after Christmas, but my wife Heidi thinks it should be constrained to theme-centric fishing with green and red fly patterns. Works for me!
See ya after Turkey Day, Doug
