On a side note, the competition for the best fly box collection was ramped up to a new level this week. We couldn’t even fit all of Dwayne’s boxes on the log to stage this photo.
The fishing over the last few days has been tough. Weather conditions were ideal, but the bite was a bit off. To make it even tougher, our largest fish always seemed to be one shake of the head, one jump to the sky and one charge to the boat ahead of us. The biggest fish we had on the hook, were never put in the net. Oh well, the day’s were filled with classic steelhead adrenaline adventure and Fall magic.
The Klamath is stable at 2100cfs in Orleans, river temps are 56 degrees, skys are filled with partial clouds, and the leaves are brilliant yellow, orange, and reds. Our typical days over the week have produced 6-15 half pounders and 0 – 3 adults. Till later, Doug
