Fishing has been good

Williamson River

by OR Department of Fish & Wildlife Staff

Fishing has been good. Grasshoppers are  thinning out. Grasshopper dry fly patterns have been productive. Flows are very low this time of year. Hatches in poor water years are not as productive as good water years. Best bet is to pay to fish on the Yamsi or Sand Creek Ranch. Look for hatches of small mayflies such as BWO’s and Mahogany Duns.

Only one single point hook will be allowed beginning April 22. This change is due to record low spawning escapement for trophy redband trout throughout the Klamath Basin. ODFW also encourages the use of barbless hooks in this fishery and catch-and-release rubber nets.
