Another thing to keep in mind is that the Klamath is not so big a river that it demands a 2 handed rod. I've fished it several times, and been able to cover it with a single.

Agree with Nate about the bugs. Black and Blue is good, maybe with some flash. Be ready to cut some stuff away if a smaller presentation is req'd.

Klamath River

I just got back from the Klamath River . The water temps. are mid to high 50's. We only used floating scandi lines. Small muddlers in drab to black colors seemed to work great. The fish were real grabby from 12-5. It is a great mix of 1/2 pounders and adult fish, all wild. You must also fish barbless! Kudo's for Craig Nielsen's spey week-end at Scott River Lodge. I would only fish a 2-handed rod because many places there is no back cast room.


All Good Things,


Gary Anderson

Bring some silver hilton's in 6 and 8. I believe the fine is 2 beers if you fail to have at least one silver hilton in your possession. Oh yeah, fish it too.
