Upper Klamath Lake Fish Report for 2-16-2022
The lake is 2.9 feet below full pool and 55 percent full
Upper Klamath Lake - Klamath Falls, OR (Klamath County)
by OR Department of Fish & Wildlife Staff
Open all year. Fishing is very slow. Most of the lake is open water. There still might be ice at Shoalwater Bay and at Moore Park Boat ramps. Boats can launch at Howard Bay. Boats can vbe launched at Rocky Point. Redband trout are scattered throughout Upper Klamath Lake. Very few redband trout are in the south end of the lake near Link River Dam.
Hagelstein Park boat ramp, restroom and day use is open. Please remember that nets or traps of any type cannot be used to catch any species of fish. This includes minnows to use for bait. See page 20 of the Sport Fishing Regulations for legal harvest methods for minnows and chubs.
ODFW encourages catch-and-release on this fishery due to record low spawning numbers in 2020 and very low numbers in 2019. Please fight your fish quickly and then release your fish immediately without removing it from the water. Releasing fish is easier with barbless hooks.
The lake is 2.9 feet below full pool and 55 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. Redband trout will have what looks to be fishing line coming from the abdomen. These fish will be 6-20 inches long.
