Steelhead fishing in the riffles

Klamath River - Lower - Klamath, CA (Humboldt County)

by Kenny Priest

The water coming down from the Trinity hit the lower river, peaking at 5,200 cfs early Wednesday morning. The steelhead fishing was excellent over the weekend, and it will likely pick back up once the river settles. With the salmon closure, fishing pressure has been light. The few boats that are out have reported really good steelhead fishing while fishing the riffles from Blue Creek down to Blake's. Reportedly there’s quite a few adults around, with some nice hatchery fish in the mix as well.
