Klamath River Fish Report for 11-14-2009

by Scott Caldwell

Yesterday, my Dad and I hit the upper part of the Klamath River and found the Steely Trout bite to be on. We caught and released 27 fish up to 4 pounds while using a variety of methods. The biggest fish was caught while backtrolling a crawdad plug. Bouncing a small piece of night crawler on the bottom caught most of the fish. Straight plugs (hotshots) and side drifted glow bugs, or glow bugs and nymphs under an indicator picked up fish as well. Most of the Steelie Trout were in the 10 to 17 inch range but we did land a few adults more adult Steelies will be coming up as we head into winter so fishing will be great for the next few months.
