Klamath River Fishing Report 10/09/17

I have been fishing the Klamath River the past few weeks and the fishing has been really decent but it went from good to great in a single day. The salmon spawn is officially underway, and the steelhead are hanging out close by for an easy meal. We are finding plenty of fish in the riffles and spawning beds. We are spending most of our time back trolling plugs, and side drifting yarn and bait. The catches consisted of steelhead and salmon and most days we saw fish to hand numbers between 10 and 20 per guide boat. The fall fishing on the Klamath River is something you really have to see to believe, its hands down the best fishing you can find in the lower 48. The fish are not trophy size but the action sets the famous Klamath River apart from the alternatives. If you want to get off the grid and catch some fish get a hold of me.



Salmon Fishing Update 08/01/17

The fall Chinook fishery on the Klamath and Trinity rivers will be closed for retention of salmon in 2017, so what this means is the Klamath and Trinity rivers will be catch and release only and not closed to angling. To help protect the stocks, ocean salmon fishing will also be closed in the California and Oregon KMZ zones (Klamath Management Zones), which run from Humbug Mt. south to Horse Mt. Visit the CDFW News Feed for more information The fall Chinook seasons on the Smith, Chetco, Rogue, Elk, and Umpqua rivers will not be affected by these closures. In fact the river fishing guides might actually see increased success do to the salmon not being targeted in the Ocean. So don’t be discouraged and let’s make the best of things. Pro guide Mario Gomez of Ironhead Guide Service will be fishing the Chetco River this year for fall chinook so it’s time to cross another destination off of your bucket list.


Rogue River Fishing Report 04/20/17

Now let’s get to the good news; The Rogue River Salmon Fishing is starting to pick up with better than expected numbers of hatchery fish being caught in the lower river. The hatchery fish head right for the upper river when they decide to start their journey up stream. Some of the popular bank fishing spots have produced a fish or two to the LINERS that occupy them this time of year. It’s just a matter of time before one of the early guides get on the board with a Rogue River Spring Chinook. Ironhead Guide Service usually gets their first springer the last week of April with the peak of the season jumping off the HOOK late May. You have time and IGS has the dates to get you on the water to test your skills at springer fishing. Don’t let this short season pass you buy and make your reservation today.
