Just back from a couple days of guiding for early Winter Steelhead on the Lower Klamath, Wednesday fished well with a good mix of wild 1/2 pounder's and Coastal Cutthroat. We were one day away from swinging up an adult or two but the latest storm hit us hard with wind and heavy rain which left us with a river on the rise at over 500 cfs an hour and was completely blown by this morning. Life of a Winter Steeheader!
The Lower Klamath , in any given Winter, only offers a few brief windows of opportunity for the Spey Angler where Swinging a fly for dime bright Winter Steelhead is realistic, flexibility is key. Feel free to contact me if your interested in Spey casting on some of the most epic swing water in the lower 48!
