Upper Klamath Lake Fish Report for 10-5-2022
Most redband trout have moved back to the lake
Upper Klamath Lake - Klamath Falls, OR (Klamath County)
by OR Department of Fish & Wildlife Staff
Open all year. Most redband trout have moved back to the lake. Best fishing is from a boat.
Boats can launch at Howard Bay, Rocky Point and Moore Park 1 and 2. Odessa Creek boat ramp is now open, but day use only.
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 4.6 feet below full pool and 32 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.
