The klamath river steelhead aren't known for their size but you would know they are smaller fish by the way they fight. What the Klamath fish lack in size they make up in sheer numbers. I fish the klamath, smith, rogue, chetco, umpqua, and coquille rivers and the Klamath is hands down the top producing river in the northwest. The other thing that will blow your mind is the lack of other boats, if you want to get away from the combat fishing come visit the Klamath.

I have been fishing all week and today was our best day since the river blew out last week. I found fish holding in all of the normal spots and ended the day with 6 nice adults and over a dozen half pounders. The fishing is always good on the klamath river so quit staring at your phone and lets go rip some lips.
