Klamath River June 2nd

Salmonfly and Juvenile Steelhead Dennis & Rocky

Dennis and Rocky get together each year at this time to celebrate their birthdays.  They’ve been friends for as long as either can remember and that has been a while.  We opted for a float on the Klamath in hopes of catching the start of the Salmonfly hatch.  While the morning started a bit slow, the afternoon and evening bite was outstanding.  Most of the fish were small, some only slightly larger than our flies but we did manage a few half pounders around 15″ and hooked a few that may have been larger still.  We had a little downpour but escaped the T-storms forecast for the area.  It appears about half of the typical number of Salmonflies have hatched and are beginning to fly and egg lay.  This hatch could reach epic proportions sometime very soon.
