Klamath River Fish Report for 11-24-2010

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

by Scott Caldwell

Today was one of those days it would have been very easy to just stay home on the warm couch and enjoy pre-Turkey day, but it was a good thing we chose not to. Conner, Dad and I bundled up and got on the water at 1pm. We waited thinking it would warm up a bit this afternoon, wrong, it was still 25 degrees, and that was as warm as it got. Sometimes it does pay to brave the elements. Conner and Dad were rewarded with the best adult Steelhead day of the season. In a little over 3 hours we landed 6 adult Steelhead (all wild) plus a few 1/2 to 1 1/2 pounder fish. Conner landed his biggest Steelhead ever, a beautiful wild 26 inch 8 pound buck that inhaled his rebel crawdad plug. When the water reaches mid to upper 40's the Steelhead can get sluggish, well not today, they bit hard, jumped and made Conner Dad and I work hard to land them, pretty much every reason we Steelhead fish!  Dad also got into the act landing two very nice adult Steelhead in the 3 and 4 pound class, one while bouncing a whole threaded night crawler and the other on the rebel crawdad plug. I started the day with the first adult Steelhead in the 2 pound class while bouncing a worm, Conner then followed my effort with another 2 pounder, before he and Dad landed the bigger boys of the trip. The season is really shaping up to be a good one, we are seeing bigger adult Steelhead and more hard fighting fish than we have seen in the last few years. The best part, no matter how harsh the weather the fish keep biting, hopefully, that will be the norm all season.
