Upper Klamath Lake Oregon
At almost 30 miles long and up to eight miles wide and
depths of up to 60 feet in some places, Upper Klamath
Lake in Oregon is the largest freshwater body west of
the Rocky Mountains. The Upper Klamath is easily one of
the most beautiful and popular of all Oregon lakes.
Anglers won’t want to miss the amazing Oregon fishing at
Pelican Bay, which is home to some of the largest trout
on the continent. This is a fly-fisherman’s paradise.
Boaters won’t be left out in the cold either. Canoeing
and kayaking enthusiasts can follow trails that roam
throughout the marshes and waterways of Pelican Bay, or
take fascinating charter tours that cover the history,
ecology and geography of the lake.
Oregon wildlife observation opportunities are
outstanding here. Visitors may get a chance to see
waterfowl, otter, mink, deer and bald eagles. Among the
more interesting flora is a strain of highly nutritious
bluish green algae that is harvested by local companies
and processed for sale as a food supplement.
