 Thanks Guy for making this trip better than the last!!!

******Fall Salmon season (Photo 2005 season) on the Klamath River is just around the corner. Last year, Salmon started showing up in the Hornbrook area around the 15th of September and lasted about a month. The early part of the season was the best time. This season will be much different than past seasons. The limit will be two jacks (Salmon under 22 inches) and one Steelhead (over 16 inches). Salmon and Steelhead cards will be required to fish in the river. The cost is about $6.50 for both. In light of the new restrictions, I will offer a discount for those that book a trip early. Call 530 905 0758. Dates available Sept 20-29, October 2-6, 8-15

Steelhead season will follow directly after the Salmon season (November & December--Photo 2005 season) and if you book a trip early I will offer a discount as well. 

I am offering fishing trips to Eagle Lake. The fishing gets better as the weather starts to get worse. Last years trip after Thanksgiving the average Trout weighed close to four pounds and we caught 35 of them (Photo). So if your interested in catching 2 to 8 pound Trout give me a call 530 905 0758
