Klamath River Fish Report for 11-12-2010

by Scott Caldwell

It was a frosty morning on the upper Klamath River yesterday. My clients Jeff Howard and Russ Hickley of the California Fly Fishers Association drifted and swung some frozen flies in the early part of the morning but by lunch time the sun was out for a while and warmed everything up. The guys landed some nice Steelhead before and after lunch, using egg and nymph patterns under an indicator as well as on the swing, using big streamers. We also landed a fairly clean hen while I was showing the guys where to swing a fly. I’m amazed at how hard that Salmon fought so late in the season got the heart pumping hard thinking it was a 15 pound Steely, especially with the long runs she made, but it was still fun anyway. Check out the pictures of Jeff and Russ's trip it was their first time in a drift boat and fishing the upper Klamath for Steelhead.
