The Wood River enters Klamath Lake at the north end via Agency Lake. This river offers dry fly fishing for German brown trout and is best fished with a local guide. All property bordering the river below Fort Klamath is private and there is no bank fishing available. The Wood has many aspects of a spring creek with respect to its hatches. Hoppers can fish well on this river during the heat of summer. Migrating rainbows enter this river late in the season, after the river flow rises, when irrigation diversions are stopped.
