Klamath River Fish Report for 10-18-2011

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

by Scott Caldwell

First time Salmon fisherwoman Rachel Bagwell of Yreka had a excellent time fishing on the upper Klamath river yesterday. This was literally Rachel's first time fishing, but she showed great skill in quickly learning how to bounce roe down the river. Rachel hooked up on 14 salmon landing 9 of them. Out of those 9 two were 20 pounds, one of which she kept, a nice hard fighting Buck. We released the 20 pound hen she caught later in the day. The bite is still going strong and we had good action most of the day. It is always hard to tell how much longer the run will last but history has show the last few years it starts to slow as we get closer to November. 

On Sunday the Mom and Son team of Gloria and Chris Calkins put on great display of teamwork. After 25 minutes of fishing Gloria put nearly 40 pounds of Salmon into the cooler and together with her 13 year old quick draw mcgraw son Chris they nailed 21 out of 25 Salmon on the day.
