Flows are high (2,230 cfs). Water temperatures have increased to over 50 F. Access will be challenging due to muddy and snowy roads. Redband trout typically eat a varied diet in this reach. This includes eating large numbers of fathead minnows. Flies and lures that mimic minnows and sculpins work best this time of year. Also, this river has very abundant caddisflies and mayflies. Caddis larvae and pupae patterns work well. There are a large number of redband trout in the 12- to 16-inch size class. Eighteen-inch redband trout are also common.

Wading this stretch is very challenging. ODFW highly recommends wading staff, wading belt, and boots with studs. Wearing polarized glasses can also assist with wading and seeing the bottom substrate.

There have been a few reports of brown trout captured in this reach. If you catch a brown trout please take a picture and report to the Klamath Falls ODFW office at 541-883-5732 ext. 24.
