Klamath River Steelhead Fly Fishing Guiding, Lodging & Outfitting

Klamath Fly Fishing Steelhead Guides - Mount Shasta, Yreka, Hornbrook, Happy Camp, Orleans. Weitchpec.

The Klamath River is one of the California hidden fly fishing treasures. We float and guide the Klamath for Steelhead and Trout all year around. The Klamath River is a 40-minute drive from Mt. Shasta City, California and has become a favorite of ours to share with our customers. We also nymph this river but have productive dry fly fishing for both steelhead, salmon and trout. Check out our fly fishing reports at www.mtshasta.com, $400 for 2 anglers ~~ Open All Year ~~ ALL GEAR INCLUDED * STREAMSIDE GOURMET LUNCH

Klamath River

WE SUPPLY SIMMS G4 WADERS & BOOTS, RODS, REELS FOR ALL OF OUR TRIPS PLUS WADING STAFFS & A STREAM SIDE GOURMET LUNCH .

Upper & Middle Klamath River

The Klamath River starts in Oregon up in the Agency and Klamath Lakes Basin. From there it flows down into California into Copco and Iron Gate Reservoirs. The river then becomes a tailwater fishery below Iron Gate Dam where large numbers of resident trout and steelhead live. In spring from late May through June, we see an incredible stone fly hatch in which large numbers of steelhead and trout are caught on the surface. midsummer though, the fishing becomes slow due to heat. We begin fishing the mouth of the Klamath the second week of August. The middle section of the Klamath River becomes productive in early October and we swing flies as well as nymph it with floating lines and indicators. Join us as we take you on an adventure down the famous Upper & Middle Klamath River. I am sure you will enjoy it! A full day float trip for two anglers in the Upper and Middle Klamath is $400, which includes a delicious lunch, and a chance to wade out of the boat. This is a river that we expect to catch steelhead on every outing.

Lower Klamath River & Mouth

klamath river fly fishing guideOn the lower section of the Klamath River to the mouth we use jet boats because of the distances involved and the size of the river. It is not unusual to see a bear on the shoreline or a cruising bald eagle as we fly up the river at safe speeds. We fish on productive gravel bars, wading out of the jet boat and many times we have seen stretches of black backs of steelhead holding that are as long as 500 yards! My best day personally is 18 adults landed up to 16 lbs. You can expect to have a great outing on the Lower Klamath and all of our equipment and jet boats are always top of the line.

Cost

$475 One or Two Anglers Per Day Includes Lunch, Gear and Flies in a McKenzie Drift Boat.

$300 per person for Summertime Jet Boat Trips. (Min. 2 anglers.)

We fly fish the Lower Klamath with both fly and spey rods as in August steelhead and salmon start to appear with migrations getting more and more intense as October approaches. Then if the rains come after October 1st more steelhead arrived and by November it’s game on for fly fishing this river until the following March, we also take folks up to the Smith and Upper Chetco Rivers for steelhead and salmon. Shoreline brunch and smoked salmon provided on all trips. From Iron Gate Dam through the town of Happy Camp and down to the mouth some 160 miles, we provide hundreds of customers with quality angling experiences annually. Open all year 'round, the Klamath River is one of the least pressured rivers in California, yet it has been producing the best annual wild steelhead fishing in the State and seems to be getting better every year. So join us in our comfortable drift boats or jet boats up top or near the mouth for both trout and steelhead ALL YEAR ROUND!
