Upper Klamath Lake Fish Report for 6-2-2021
Water Clarity Continues to Improve
Upper Klamath Lake - Klamath Falls, OR (Klamath County)
by OR Department of Fish & Wildlife Staff
Open all year. Water clarity continues to improve and the algae bloom is very light. Catch rates for redband trout continue to improve. Most anglers are trolling lures from boats.
Boat ramps are open. This includes Moore Park, Rocky Point, Wocus Bay and Eagle Ridge. Currently, most boat anglers are experiencing poor to fair fishing.
Hagelstein Park boat ramp, restroom and day use is now open. However, the lake level is low therefore getting a boat out of Hagelstein might be challenging. Please remember that nets of any type cannot be used to catch any species of fish. This includes minnows to use for bait.
ODFW encourages catch-and-release on this fishery due to record low spawning numbers last year and low numbers two years prior. Please fight your fish quickly and then release your fish immediately without removing it from the water. Releasing fish is easier with barbless hooks.
The lake is 3 feet below full pool and 53 percent full. Water temperature is peaking around 70 degrees.
Please remember that once you retain your one redband/rainbow trout limit you must stop fishing for redband/rainbow trout. Also, all radio tagged redband trout must be released unharmed. Redband trout will have what looks to be fishing line coming from the abdomen. These fish will be 6-18 inches long
