The Klamath River is the second largest drainage in California, boasting consistently strong returns of steelhead year in and year out. As the river winds southwest from below Iron Gate dam towards the Pacific Ocean, it takes many different forms. From high desert to thickly wooded pine forests, the river has a variety of scenery to fish through. The long sweeping tailouts and extensive rock gardens make this river a swing fisherman’s paradise. The Klamath River steelhead might not be the biggest on the west coast, but their sheer numbers will more than make up for that.
