Southern Oregon has a unusual set of circumstances that might have made it one of the coolest places to put your single handed and Micro speys to the test. Before all the dams were built on the Klamath River the steelhead would run all the way to the Klamath lake, stage there and run up the tributaries in the fall. when the dams were built it trapped a ton of these fish in the lake. this wasn't all bad though as there is a ton of food in the Klamath. The genetics of these fish matched the rich lake environment well, making huge AGRESSIVE steelhead like trout. These Trout now use the lake like the pacific and migrate out of it when the lake warms every summer and when they spawn. This means there are a ton of large aggressive trout in the river systems that love to take the swung fly. If you are as big into the small spey world as I am you might have to give the Basin a try. you can check out more about this amazing fishery on my blog. spey on!
