Upper Klamath Lake is a large, shallow freshwater lake east of the Cascade Range in south-central Oregon. The largest body of fresh water by surface area in Oregon, it is approximately 25 miles long and 8 miles wide and extends northwest from the city of Klamath Falls. It sits at an average elevation of 4,140 feet. As the the summer heat warms Upper Klamath Lake large Rainbow Trout migrate out of the lake main body of the lake in search of cooler water. As a result, fishing begins to pick up as the summer heat increases. The fish seek out the river mouths and springs as a respite from the hot lake water. The mouth of the Wood River in Agency Lake, and the Rocky Point area in Pelican Bay stack up with large Rainbows.  Most fish run in the 18-24" range  with legitimate chances to catch wild Rainbows 10+ lbs.
