Join Gino Bernero and the rest of the Confluence Outfitters guide staff on the Lower Klamath River for a weekend of Spey casting instruction. Gino’s property is located several miles upstream from the Klamath Glen boat launch on Starwein Riffle, one of the best swing runs on the Lower Klamath. Guests target chrome bright steelhead just entering the river system mere miles from the saltwater. With a maximum of 3 guests per guide, each guest receives a high degree of personal attention.
