The Klamath River is considered by most fly fishers as having the best fishing for wild salmon and steelhead in all of California. When you consider this river flows through the most beautiful wilderness of Northern California, and you will be casting over ocean run 10 lb fish that will take you into your backing, then you will understand why a fly fishing trip on the Klamath will be one of your greatest life experiences.
The best fly fishing usually happens from September through October and into November, as long as the Winter rains hold off. When the Winter storms come, the river muddies up and flows increase to the point where fishing with a fly becomes pretty rugged.
You will have unlimited opportunities to cast from Mr. Carlson’s 17’ drift boat, and to wade the famously productive riffles found from Blue Creek down river to the Mouth of the Klamath.
