Fishing

Fishing on the river is excellent.  The Klamath River has been designated a Wild Trout River from the Oregon border to Copco Lake and trout fishing on the river has been excellent over the years.  The California Department of Fish and Game and Pacific Power and Light have provided 6 public access points with ample parking.

A wide variety of fish are found in the lake with the most common being trout, perch, bass, and catfish.  

Fishing from the shore or trolling at the upper end of the lake can usually land a good size Rainbow Trout.  Trout are generally caught in the 1 to 6 pound range.

The lake has an almost unlimited population of yellow perch.  Perch can usually be found in any location and are easy to catch.  Perch do, however travel in schools and it is sometimes necessary to change your fishing location until you find another school.  They are commonly caught in the 5 to 12 inch range.

Also present in Copco Lake are largemouth bass.  Most taken are in the 1 to 3 pound range, even though 5 to 6 pound fish have been heard of.

Catfish (brown bullhead) can also be caught at the lake after dark.  Any of the catfish baits or night crawlers have always been very successful.

Fishing Licenses are available at the Copco Lake Store.
