Fishing, Boating, Birding
World Class Fishing
Harriman Springs Resort & Marina is a launching pad to tackle Upper Klamath and Agency Lake’s renowned Redband and Rainbow trout. The lakes also have large populations of yellow perch. Summertime fishing finds many anglers in Pelican Bay, a finger jutting off the northwest end of the main lake minutes away from Harriman Springs Resort & Marina. This bay is fed by several smaller tributaries and springs coming off the Cascade Mountains and the Winema National Forest, so it stays cooler and clearer in hot weather.
The best fishing here begins in mid-June and holds up through summer. Within a drive or boat ride are Williamson, Sprague and Wood Rivers. Close by are Four Mile Lake and Lake of the Woods. Nearby creeks are abundant including Recreation, Crystal, Four Mile, Cherry, and Nannie Creek.
Harriman Springs is part the heart of the Pacific Flyway. Upper Klamath Basin is an important stopover for the Pacific Flyway. Six national wildlife refuges, including the Upper Klamath National Wildlife Refuge that borders Harriman Springs, three wildlife areas and thousands of acres of private farmlands converge to provide habitat for a wide variety of waterfowl, shorebirds, songbirds, raptors, big game, small mammals and aquatic life.
At least 489 species of wildlife visit or live in this diverse wonderland. Upwards of 500 bald eagles migrate to the area November through April. Rocky Point has several mating eagle pairs that live here year round. Millions of birds stop here throughout the year to feed, rest and raise their young.
