Umpqua River

The winter steelhead season is well underway on the west coast and with the lack of water in the rivers, fishing has been pretty tuff.

We got to fish the lower Klamath River this week and found a mix of fall and winter fish. The river is still a little high but if you find some slow water fish it. The fish were hanging out in the slow deep water and close to the banks. We picked up all of our fish on yarn balls...
