Klamath River Fish Report for 11-25-2009

by Scott Caldwell

Fishing for adult Steelhead on the upper Klamath River is getting better by the day. On Monday, my clients Paris and his grandson Wesley landed 30 Steely Trout with a few adults mixed in. Wesley hooked up on a nice 5 to 6 pound Steelhead while back trolling a crawdad plug, but on the first jump it spit the plug clean over the boat. Paris landed a nice 2 to 3 pounder while back trolling a whole threaded night crawler on a jet driver. The guys landed most of the fish while back trolling crawdads plugs or hotshot worm combos. On Tuesday, my brother Lance and my Dad hit the river for a few hours in the evening and they landed 4 adults while back trolling the crawdad plug. These fish were all in the 2 to 4 pound range and 19 to 24 inches in length. Lance landed a nice fat adult while bobbing a worm in the herring tree hole. This is a great time to get out not many people are trying and the weather has been great. Happy Birthday Dad (today) and Lance (yesterday) love you guys!!!
