Upper Klamath Lake, Oregon

Rocky Point Resort is on the northwest corner of Upper Klamath Lake - we found it after looking in Trailer Life for an alternative to Eagle Lake. Don wanted to skip Eagle Lake after hearing about the poor fishing and hot weather there. We got lucky - this is a place we would come back to again and again. Not only was it a nice place (a bit rustic, but that's fine with us), the fishing was magnificent and there's a quilt shop only a mile away! Our campsite, number 14, was only 15 feet from the water. Yes, that meant we had to deal with mosquitos, but that's been a constant this trip.

For the 6 days we were here, Don spent most of each of them out here in his float tube. Most evenings he fished until dark. The first night, he caught at 6-pound rainbow - but topped that a few nights later with a 10-pounder. We learned they were common in this lake, but for Don, it was something extraordinary.
