Klamath River Resort Inn is one of the last historic Klamath River fishing lodges left on the banks of the Klamath River - we even still have our antique fishing rod holders outside every guest room door.
As a guest you are welcome to fish from our banks as well as moor your boat on our beach. In the late afternoon or evening after your incredible day of fishing enjoy a roaring campfire on our private beach and swap stories of the adventure. We have two fire rings on the beach. Firewood available from our managers.
We have several local fishing guides who will be happy to pick you up at our lodge in the morning and drop you off directly from the boat on our beach after a memorable day of fishing on the legendary Klamath River. Reserve your room first then request a guide from us by email.
We also provide shuttle service if you have your own boat.
We also have a drift boat for rent for those fishermen who are comfortable rowing their own boat. The rental rate is $250 a day and includes shuttle. The boat has 3 seats including the rower. We can arrange a rower for $75 a day + tip.
late summer, great migrations of King Salmon (Chinook) make their way up
the Klamath River back to their place of origin to lay their own eggs to
complete the circle of life. (Prime Fishing August to October)
Be sure to check regulations regarding season and limits - see link
also move upriver in the Fall just after Salmon to spawn. In the spring
they make their way back down river to the Pacific. (Prime Fishing
September to March)
Fly Fishing is one of the most
popular activities on the Klamath. With most of the banks under public
ownership, access is easy. Unlike some other California rivers closer
to major population centers, the Klamath never gets crowded - One can
fish a prime Saturday and never see another fisherman.
Fly fishing is
accessible directly in front of the resort. Walk down the lawns from
your guest room and wade in front of the resort - most of the waters are
around 3 feet deep. Up river from the resort about 100 yards is an
island with some great riffles. Down river about 100 yards from the
resort is a cold water creek. After this creek there are several deep
holes and multiple boulders - great holding spots for hungry steelhead.
Make sure you
have spikes on your boots as the bottom of the Klamath is generally
slippery. A walking stick is a great option. Hiring a guide with a
drift boat or renting a drift boat from us is another great option for easy access.
