Steelhead fishing isn't easy. If it were, there'd be a lot more people fishing for steelhead. If you had to choose a river to go steelheadin, you can't go wrong with the Klamath River. Our guides are extremely professional, know the river, and are hard working. The Klamath yields some beautiful fish all winter long, with some magical weeks in the fall. Throw in some resident fish and some large salmon, you're bound to have a wonderful time on the fantastic Klamath River.

During a couple weeks in fall, something amazing happens and the river comes alive. The salmon make their way to spawn, the colors of the trees have changed and the steelhead make their way up river.
This is a great opportunity to catch some really nice steelhead and feel the burn on some salmon or learn to nymph fish with resident trout or half pounder steelhead.   Most of the trip you'll be fishing off a sturdy drift boat, but there are plenty of areas for walk and wade fishing should you desire.
