The salmon effort and harvest has slowed considerably on the lower Klamath. Reportedly, the mouth is still sanded over making it difficult for fish to enter the river. If and when it blows open, we should see more fresh kings along with coho move in. For the week ending Oct. 7, 43 jacks were harvested and 43 adults were released above the Highway 101 bridge. The daily bag limit is two jack Chinook at 23-inches or smaller and two hatchery steelhead.
