Hey folks here are a few picks from the last couple days. We have been fishing the Klamath River at some pretty high flows but seem to be finding a few fish. If you wait to have perfect conditions to go fishing you miss out on so many fishing days. Fish the fringes of the water crests and pull some plugs the pockets, and soft seams you will be amazed what you find.
