However, we are hearing of large numbers of steelhead just down-stream of us, and the river conditions appear ideal. Our river temperature was at 53 degrees, the clarity is excellent, there is very little moss or algae remaining after the cleansing storm, and the ambient air temperatures are indian-summer-like.
I am going to celebrate my daughter’s 16th birthday tomorrow and take a day off. Yes, she got her driver’s permit, and yes, she can drive the family car ….gulp. The Klamath River highway is a very un-forgiving place to learn to drive.
Here is a picture of a fish from three day’s ago….just to keep you excited about Klamath steelheading on the fly!
