Mid-Klamath: Iron Gate Dam is releasing 4,290cfs at this time so I would say fishing the Klamath is unfishable at this time. With the flows down river in the thousands cfs it will be a while before one will be able to wet a line. I just hope this will flush out the parasites that are causing the loss of our juvenile solenoids. Some sections of Hwy 96 are flooded!

Klamath: Iron Gate Dam releases are 4,290cfs.  Seiad Valley is 12.2ft at 19.7Kcfs. Happy Camp is estimated at 25.2Kcfs. Somes Bar is estimated at 49.9Kcfs. Orleans is 20.5ft. at 64.5Kcfs. Klamath River at Terwer Creek is 26.7ft at 102Kcfs and water temperatures of 48.2 degrees. Flows at Smith River, Dr. Fine Bridge are 20.3ft at 43.4Kcfs.
