There seems to be some confusion about my last report about “Oceans 21”. The Obama administration wants to add onto the MLPA restrictions by making the MLPA restrictions extend out past the state 3 mile limit and extend the restrictions to the 12 mile federal limit but also add inland fresh water areas that flow to the ocean and their estuaries. Some of these river basins would be the Sacramento and Klamath River Basins. “IF” this were to happen it could possibly end fishing in the Klamath River Basin. This is something we have to watch and notify our representatives about if we don’t want to see fishing restricted more than it is now. If you are against this effort I suggest you notify Cal. Rep. Sam Farr that you are against Executive Order 13547.
Oct. 14; Chinook, 2 jacks, 6 adults, total 8, to date1, 400. Coho; 37 jacks, 21 adult, total 39, to date183. Steelhead: 41-1/2lbs, 108 adults, total 149, to date 1,417.
The Mid-Klamath above the Weitchpec Bridge is still producing fresh salmon and fishing has been good but not hot. My buddy John from E Ne Nuck informed me that the forest service closed the campground when the fishing was just starting to get really going and hunting season is still open. What a shame because that could turn fishermen away for coming into the area. I have word that fishing in Orleans is on the upswing and getting better as more fish head up the Klamath. I have been checking the water temperatures for the Lower Trinity and the Mid-Klamath and it appears that water temps are staying 58 to 60 degrees. Maybe this is why we are having such good fishing on the lower sections. Trinity River Flows and Conditions:
