Hatches are starting with salmonflies and large mayfly specie

Wood River - Klamath Falls, OR (Klamath County)

Water temperatures remain cold and the river is turbid due to rain and snowmelt in Annie and Sun Creeks. Fishing is slow but should improve with increase in water temperature. Best fishing is below Weed Road. Brown trout typically feed on organisms on the bottom of the river this time of year. These include sculpin, earthworms, crayfish and stoneflies. Patterns or lures that match these will be more successful.

Hatches are starting with salmonflies and large mayfly species attracting fish to the surface. The pale morning duns are also starting to hatch. Match the hatch dry fly fishing will be good this month.

Please handle redband trout carefully and be on the lookout for bull trout. Report any you capture to ODFW in Klamath Falls. 

The boundary of the Wood River is outside the narrow riverine channels surrounded by vegetation. This is almost a mile below the Wood River BLM Wetland Bridge. The Wood River includes the Petric Canal that is on the north side of the Wood River Wetlands so please follow the Wood River fishing regulations for this area.
