KLAMATH & AGENCY LAKE


The Klamath and Agency Lakes are really one lake that was separated by a series of dikes and reclaimed lands. Just the Klamath section of the lake is considered one of the largest lakes in Oregon, being thirty miles long and eight miles across, add the Agency section to the mix and you have a monster fish producer. With average depth at a mere fourteen foot this system is a major aquatic insect machine. The Klamath/Agency system is the lifeblood of all the basin stream systems acting as a trophy trout rookery that is beyond compare. The famed Redband trout grow to outlandish size feeding in its fertile waters. The lake acts as a mini ocean from which the large trout migrate. There are two major migratory times. The first being in the summer, when temperatures start to warm and the lake temps rise. The fish will find the cooler water of the river estuaries, and the springs that are spread throughout. The second migration comes in the fall when the Redbands push up the rivers to spawn. Growing up in the Basin has given me huge advantage of knowing where these cold water sources are and of knowing what time of year the fish are there. We specialize in fly fishing this large body of water, and over the years have learned the techniques required to catch large Klamath Lake trout.  If you like the idea of hooking multiple fish, on the fly, in the three to five pound range, with the chance of hitting the double digits, the Klamath/Agency Lakes are for you.
