Klamath River - Upper - OR Fish Report for 10-28-2021
Catch rates were low on opening day and effort was very high
by OR Department of Fish & Wildlife Staff
Keno Dam to J.C Boyle Reservoir
Catch rates were low on opening day and effort was very high. Remember bait is not allowed and only one fish over 15 inches can be harvested per day. Also, remember that once you retain your one redband/rainbow trout limit you must stop fishing for redband/rainbow trout.
Flows (685 cfs) and water temperatures look to be ideal -- for fishing and wading. Large trout in this reach start to feed on the many fat head minnows and chub coming down from above Keno Dam. Few trout over 18” are being caught this fall. Flies and lures that mimic these minnows will be successful. Remember the Klamath River eats your fishing gear. Jig style hooks, heavy line and single barbless hooks can reduce the likelihood of losing a lot of gear.
This section of the river is very challenging fishing with white water and treacherous wading. The river is loaded with boulders and drop offs. ODFW recommends a wading staff, wading belt, excellent wading boots with studs, and maybe even a helmet and shin guards!
Public access is difficult but you can drive a horrendous road to immediately below Keno Dam. All other sites require a significant hike to the river.
