The Williamson below Klamath Marsh is closed until the last Saturday in May. The upper Williamson is open, however. Access is difficult due to private property.
Small nymphs and the usual size 10-12 Woolly Buggers (brown, black) should do well in the lower Williamson when it opens. Present the Woolly Buggers down-and-across and retrieve in quick, two-inch pulls with a pause between each pull. You can also team the Woolly Bugger with a Prince nymph and drift the combo past rocks.
While this river's biggest trout are rainbows that move up from Klamath Lake later in the year, the Williamson also supports a good population of resident trout that can go 20 inches. Those are the fish you're casting for in May and June.
