Klamath bite slowed

After last weekends hot bite, the summer steelhead has slowed on the lower Klamath according to guide Mike Coopman of Mike Coopman’s Guide Service. “I think a lot of the fish that were holding at Blue Creek have moved up and now it’s just a waiting game until the next group come in. There are a few salmon around and I was able to land eight on my best day, which is pretty good for July. I’m hoping we’ll get some cooler weather inland that will drop the water temperature and draw in some more fish from the ocean. I’ve heard there’s quite a few salmon moving in and out of the mouth, so the bite can turn on pretty quickly if we get some favorable conditions,” Coopman said. — Excerpt from Fishing the North Coast column by Kenny Priest
