Wood River Fish Report for 10-19-2022
Fishing for brown trout and redband trout should be good this week
Wood River - Klamath Falls, OR (Klamath County)
by OR Department of Fish & Wildlife Staff
Fishing for brown trout and redband trout should be good this week. Brown trout are pushing up higher in the river and have started spawning. There are several low bridges that require portaging on the upper river. The float from Weed Road to Petric can also be productive dry fly-fishing but often you’ll need to get flies subsurface. A typical drift boat can float this section.
Redband trout and brown trout are scattered throughout the river. Covering lots of water is your best bet.
Brown trout typically feed on organisms on the bottom of the river. These include sculpin, earthworms, crayfish and stoneflies. Patterns or lures that match these will be more successful. Swinging caddisfly pupae patterns can be effective.
Please handle redband trout carefully and be on the lookout for bull trout. Report any bull trout 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.
