Thanks for posting this video. Klamath is my home river and is close to my heart. The guy being interviewed, Craig Ballenger, lives in my small town of about 3000 people. He is a wealth of historical information and a nice guy. He is affiliated with California Trout and guides for their donors. Most of the fish pictured in the film, along with the drift boats nymphing, were shot in the section just down stream from the uppermost section below the dam and near the hatchery. This is where the guides go to run indicators, and is my least favorite section of the river. Unfortunately this is what some people think of when they think of the Klamath. Down river there are wonderful pools and runs that are uncrowded and one rarely catches a hatchery fish, so common below the dam. The adult steelhead average a little over 20 inches and a 24-27 inch steelie is a nice fish. Fishing with a 5 wt. Spey rod is fun. Some days I fish long stretches of the river and don't see another soul fishing. When the dams come down in 2020 the fishing should only improve. My friend, who lives in the middle section of the river, is retired and fishes nearly every day. He is an excellent fisherman and tyer. He taught me how to tye a feather wing and inspired me to study fisheries biology. He usually catches over 100 steelhead in October alone. I love the Klamath! Again thanks for posting this.
Bring the swing.
