Fishing in Klamath River
Rules & Regulations
Regulations on the Klamath change depending on the part of the river. The dates for spring and fall Salmon runs can vary. On some parts of the river, you can fish as early as May, while on others, July is the beginning of the season. It’s important to check all the details and daily limits with your guide before you start fishing. You’ll also need to buy a valid fishing license, which is usually not included in the price of your fishing trip.
Klamath River Fishing Seasons
The upper Klamath River runs through the Siskiyou Mountains, which means that winter weather is too harsh for fishing. Meanwhile, Steelhead fishing on the Lower Klamath is more than decent.
Fishing is still just warming up on the river, just like the weather. Trout fishing around Crescent City can offer some good times on the water, while Salmon fishing is still on hold.
As Chinook are preparing to begin their trip from the ocean to the river, Rainbow Trout are biting and there isn’t a dull moment on the water. Crescent City is the best spot to begin your fishing jaunt.
It’s becoming warm on the water, which means that Trout are going to take the back seat by the end of the month. But don’t worry, as April ends, the spring Salmon run is about to begin.
Chinook Salmon are officially in town, and if you’re casting your line south of Crescent City, you have a good chance of hooking something good. Fly fishing for Steelhead is hot in May.
It’s officially summertime, and fishing is one the best ways to avoid the heat. You can get your fill of Chinook Salmon around Crescent City, while Steelhead aren’t fans of the warm days and are harder to find.
This is the month! The Salmon spring run on Klamath River is officially open and if you’re in the mood to fight an impressive-sized King, this is the time to hit the water with an experienced guide.
In August, the Klamath River just keeps on giving! Trout are entering the river and Salmon are already there in great numbers, always hungry and ready to fight. Usually, by the end of the month, the fall Salmon run will begin!
Fall is the peak of the Klamath fishing season! Chinook are swimming up the river by the thousands and the “half-pounder” Trout season will start toward the last week of September.
With cooler temperatures comes an excellent Trout bite! If you feel like doing some winter Trout fishing, action on the Klamath River is something you shouldn’t miss out on.
For the holidays, treat yourself to some good Trout fishing on the Klamath River! Rainbow Trout are loving the colder days and this is your chance to catch your limit one last time before New Year!
