Fly Fishing for Steelhead in Northern California

I offer Steelhead fly fishing trips on the Upper Klamath River. I specialize in Swinging techniques. The swing technique is the traditional method for catching steelhead. This is done by casting downstream and across, flipping a mend if needed, and letting the tight line “swing” the fly across the current seam or target water. Depending on conditions, we use floating or sinking lines to get the flies to the desired depth. Grabs are pretty obvious. We can use single and two-handed rods with flies like the Silver Hilton, Purple Peril, Green Butt Skunk, and Tiger Paw just to name a few.

The season can starts in early October on the Klamath and runs through Thanksgiving for the summer run fish. Every year is a little different and I tend to target the last 3 weeks of October.

 

Klamath river is currently a tailwater fishery (that may change in the near future) with a strong run of “Half-pounder” steelhead. These guys are crazed fighters and make up the bulk of action between adult fish.

Lodging

 

Lodging is abundant and in every price range. For fishing on only the Klamath, Yreka, California is close and offers all the necessary facilities.  Also, consider Mount Shasta City and Weed for options.

 

Cost

 

  • $500/day

  • Includes boat, guide, launch fees, lunch, and flies.

  • You will need to get the appropriate state license and have your own wading gear. I encourage you to use your favorite rod if it’s a single hand 7 or 8 weight or, I have demo rods with the right lines to use as well.

I prefer to swing for steelhead with single and two-handed rods. There is something about the cast, swing, step down approach that I find relaxing. Then there is the “Grab” that pulls me out of whatever day dream I was in and the game is on. It all combines to have me more connected to the process than any other method. Perseverance pays off and the swinging technique is a traditional way to honor a great species of fish. I welcome the opportunity to share the experience with you.
