Klamath River - Below Irongate Reservoir, California Fly Fishing Reports & Conditions
My tips of the week
Klamath is fishing very well, we have had a break in the rain and the fish keep rolling in. Starting to see some very nice winter fish above I-5 along with their fall run buddies. Also the other bit of good news is there isn't anyone else fishing, we have had our own "private" piece of steelhead heaven....amen!
