Fishing for brown trout and redband trout should be good this week Flows have dropped in Annie and Sun Creek and the Wood River was pretty clear at the Wood River Wetland bridge. Go to the Oregon Water Resources Near Real Time Website to look at flows for Annie Creek. Best fishing is below Weed Road.

Brown trout typically feed on organisms on the bottom of the river this time of year. These include sculpin, earthworms, crayfish and stoneflies. Patterns or lures that match these will be more successful. Grasshoppers are around and fish are starting to feed on them.

The pale morning duns are the most prolific insects throughout the river. Match the hatch dry fly fishing will be good this month.

Please handle redband trout carefully and be on the lookout for bull trout. Report any bull trout you capture to ODFW in Klamath Falls. 

The boundary of the Wood River is outside the narrow riverine channels surrounded by vegetation. This is almost a mile below the Wood River BLM Wetland Bridge. The Wood River includes the Petric Canal that is on the north side of the Wood River Wetlands so please follow the Wood River fishing regulations for this area.
