The fishing continues to be amazing on the klamath river and if you are willing to test your oarsmans skills you can find water most boats will avoid. Today I tried something new and fished with some soft beads from BnR tackle and was pretty surprised with their productivity. The bead was producing bites almost as often as my yarn balls. The fish of the day actually came on a soft bead, in the first hole we used it. The salmon are spread out and not spawning in areas they normally do so I have been searching the riffles and tailouts and have been grinding out 15 to 20 fish a day with a few accidental salmon in the mix. If you want to get in on the action get off your couch and BOOK A TRIP with the premier klamath river outfitter.
