No matter where you fish, you are going to need a new 2014 fishing license. Locally you can buy them at Brocco’s Old Barn on Arnold Drive. You can also buy them online at dfg.ca.gov/licensing/ols/.
If you are heading north to Oregon, you can find them online at the Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife website, outdoorcentral.net.
Steelhead and trout fishing is pretty good right now in the Klamath River, Rogue River and Trinity River. A little closer (only a three-hour drive) is the Sacramento River between Redding and Red Bluff, where the trout fishing has also been good.
The upper Klamath is producing excellent steelhead fishing, plus lots of half-pounders.
The best guide for drifting the Klamath and Rogue is Jim Andras, Andras Outfitters, 530-722-7992.
