There are a few things that happen with a rising river... 1. Stale fish perk up 2. New fish move in 3. Flows go up 4. The river blows 5. River drops 6. Fish are happy 7. This happens all over again 5 days later
In the last 8 days we have seen around 7" of rain in the Klamath/Trinity basin. Fishing picked up and was good until the rivers blew. It then dropped into shape and no more than a day later we get more rain. Rivers rise and now on the drop. I anticipate good fishing this next week. We should still have some good numbers of half-pounders around and some new big November freshies moving into the system. November can be a great time to hook up with one of those big late fall runs or even the bright early winter run steelhead.
