Fishing Remains Fair

Wood River - Klamath Falls, OR (Klamath County)

by OR Department of Fish & Wildlife Staff

The river opened to fishing on Monday, April 22. Fishing remains fair for brown trout using lures in the lower river. Flows are high but fishable. Please release redband trout carefully as they have likely just finished spawning or are small juveniles.

Best fishing for brown trout will be from the Weed Road bridge down to Crooked Creek. Best fishing is from a boat. Anglers can launch boats at Petric Canal and motor upstream or float from Weed Road to Petric. Small inflatables can also be launched at the BLM Wood River Wetland parking area on Petric Canal. Petric canal is considered the Wood River and fall under Wood River regulations.

Brown trout are feeding extensively on large stonefly nymphs, leeches, crayfish and various rodents during high flow events. No bait is allowed but artificials mimicking these diet items presented on the bottom will work well.

Please call 541-883-5732 to report any bull trout captured.
