Fresh Kings Are Moving in The Tides

Klamath River - Lower - Klamath, CA (Humboldt County)

by Kenny Priest

Spring-run salmon have been caught daily in the estuary since the July 1 opener. Fresh kings are moving in with the tides and starting to stack up as the water temperatures are over 70 degrees. Anchovies rigged with a spinner blade has been the top producer so far. The best fishing has been on the incoming and a couple hours after the high.
