The Klamath River in Oregon is prime fly fishing territory for any angler, especially those with an eye out for big, hungry trout! You won’t be able to take any of these beauties home though. Catch and release is usually implemented in the prime summer fishing months so this one piece can serve as a stand-in. The Klamath Redband Trout will be a distinctive catch, their namesake reddish bands contrasting with their normal green-blue coloration. It’s not the largest catch, averaging just 12 inches. Yet it could pose a challenge: no live bait is allowed!
Otherwise known as the Great Basin Redband trout, this subspecies of Rainbow Trout is native to the south central to the Cascade Range in Oregon. Even extreme northeast of California and northwest of Nevada. This fishing Romper is great for any trout fisherman.
