The giant Salmonflies of the Western mountains are legendary for their proclivity to elicit consistent dry-fly action and ferocious strikes.

27" brown trout, my largest ever. It was the sub-dominant fish in its pool. After this, I hooked the bigger one, but I couldn't land it.

I read in FlyFisherman about the possible removal of several dams on the Klamath, appearatly to improve anadromous fish migration. What's the news? Good? Bad?

Sorry for the late reply; I just moved back to Michigan...

Any who, at the time I left all who were involved with this particular irrigation/water rights issue are in favor of and are recommending the removal of the four dams on the Klamath River. Naturally, Pacific Power is resistant to the recommendations. However, they do indicate that it would cost more to install fish ladders than dam removal. Next month it will all come to a head.

Even so, it will not happen overnight; property owners along the river do have very valid concerns in regard to the flooding that will occur as the dams are removed; if that ever does happen.

Probably the best place to go for current news would be Herald and News.com; the Klamath Falls newspaper. It is a fairly complex issue as their are a number of groups involved. FWIW.


Eventually, all things merge into one...and a river runs through it.
