Guided Steelhead Fly Fishing Rates And Packages on the Lower Klamath (via Jet Boat) And Middle Klamath (via Drift Boat)
We provide the guide, lunch with drinks, the jet boat (up to 6 clients in the jet boat) or drift boat (two clients in the drift boats), shuttles, tackle, tippet, fly patterns, and rods as needed. You will need waders and boots if you wish to include wading as part of your day. We encourage guests to bring their own rods and fly patterns, but our guides will “fill in the gaps” as part of your regular trip fare and will not nickel and dime you for needed fly patterns. Steelhead fishing on the Lower Klamath (via jet boat) typically begins late July and on the mid Klamath (via drift boats) in mid September.
Our jet boat program focuses on the Lower Klamath between Coon Falls and Blue Creek and is ideal for spey casters. Exclusive jet boat charters requires a minimum booking of 4 fishermen. We proudly drive a Rogue Jet 22′ “fast water” forward console in-board with space heaters, rain canopy, and Yamaha kicker motor.
Our drift boat program covers 6 – 10 miles of river in a day and we decide on which run to drift based on river conditions when you arrive. Steelhead fishing on the mid Klamath is best September through April (as river conditions permit), with the prime months being October and November. Spey casting is also good on the mid Klamath with our drift boat program, but some of our best holding water is frankly best reached while casting from the decks of our drift boats.
