Upper Klamath salmon fishing hot
Guide Andy Martin of Wild Rivers Fishing (www.wildriversfishing.com) says his clients have been getting 8 to 10 fish a day, plus several more hookups.
Pulling plugs, especially the new Mag Lips chrome and chartreuse plug from Worden's has been good. Andy says to wrap the plug with a sardine fillet.
The plugs have worked well below the hatchery deadline.
Back-Bouncing roe cured in Pautzke's Fire Cure or BorxOFire also has produced.
The peak of the Upper Klamath salmon run is in mid-October, so fishing should remain good for a few weeks.
You can keep three salmon a day on the Klamath (two adults). Barbless hooks must be used.
