Fishing has slowed for yellow perch in the Pelican Bay area and near the confluence of Recreation Creek. The deep water around the Crystal Creek mouth is a good place to start.

Redband trout are moving back into the lake. Fish are starting to spread out again making finding and catching them more challenging. Covering a lot of water by trolling is likely the best method to find the big redband trout. The lake is 3.7 feet below full pool and 43 percent full.

Please remember that once you retain your one redband/rainbow trout limit you must stop fishing for redband/rainbow trout. Also, all radio tagged redband trout must be released unharmed.

The Oregon Health Authority updated a recreational use health advisory today for Upper Klamath Lake due to the presence of a cyanobacterial (harmful algae) bloom and cyanotoxins (harmful algae toxins) above recreational guideline values for human exposure. See more information about blue-green algae alerts.
