Lakes; backwaters and slow sections of rivers: count-down-and-retrieve, slow retrieve, wind drift

► Always a good choice for Klamath Lake.

Lakes; rivers over gravel and cobble, undercut banks: count-down-and-retrieve, slow retrieve, wind drift, deep swing

October Tips


► If--when--the weather turns frigid, forget this lake until spring.

► Most of the migratory fish have moved into the Wood or Williamson, or are in the small spring creeks that feed the lake. You might find some fish in the Rocky Point area.
