Klamath River Fish Report for 9-22-2010

Klamath River - Upper - CA - Hornbrook, CA (Siskiyou County)

by Scott Caldwell

 If you want to guarantee a fish in the boat just put a woman in one seat. Well, it was Lady's day today and all the seats were filled with woman. Abby, Monique, and (almost 3) Zoe got in some early season salmon fishing on the Klamath River today and were rewarded with 3 out 5 Salmon. The day couldn't have started much faster as we put out the k-15 kwikfish just past the 3500ft sign, and within 1 minute Monique had a nice fish on. After a short battle the fish got close enough to the boat for the early morning "oh nice one" , but at that moment Mr. Kwikfish got spit free, and the early morning "nice one" went to the early morning @@@@ one that got away!!! It wasn't too much longer after that, Monique hooked another nice Salmon on the kwikfish, but this time it found its way into the net. It was a nice 14 pound buck, which at cleaning time had some very nice orange meat!! The next three Salmon were hooked while bouncing roe, two of which were in the same spot. Once again Monique had another nice Salmon on, this time it was a 20 pound hen, the 4 big fish of the day. Once we got the fish in the boat and pictures were taken, Abby had her first Salmon of the day on, but like they often do, it shook free and the big ohhhhhhhhhh followed. We moved to the next hole and Abby hooked and landed our final Salmon of the morning and very fresh frisky 12 pound buck that fought like a 30 pounder. These fish are very fresh and BBQ worthy right now as well as being full of fighting spunk! It is early in the season but not too many boat are out trying so come out on out and give it try this is the best time of the year on the river.
