This is the Sprague River just outside of the town of Chiloquin. The river meanders through the lush Sprague River Valley and is an excellent river for fishing! There have been trophy-sized trout caught here, and it is also popular for fly fishing. You can also swim, float, canoe or just play in the water, and since there is an access right across the street, it's just a few minutes away!
The property slopes gently, but the topography varies. There has been a pad cut in by previous owners for a possible building site. The trees are primarily pines, the understory is sage, and rabbit brush as well as some native grasses, and wildflowers in the spring!
The Sprague River converges with the Williamson River just outside of Chiloquin and flows on to provide the Upper Klamath Lake with its primary source of fresh water! This photo was taken from the park just outside of Chiloquin where there is an easy boat launch and parking area.

Wilderness surrounds you here!

The elevation here is about 4,300 ft, and it does get cold in the winters. It is considered high desert here, and is fairly arid. It does not get the typical Oregon rainfall that we get on the western side of the Cascades. The summers are warm and pleasant, and in the spring and fall, the mornings are clear and crisp, but it tends to warm up in the afternoons. The growing season is a little shorter here with the high elevation, you may need to cover your garden from the late spring frosts.
Klamath County has many clear year-round rivers and pristine alpine lakes. There are wildlife refuges, State Parks, wetlands, marshes, and abundant wildlife.

The Klamath Basin has the largest congregation of wintering bald eagles in the lower 48 states! You can also see sandhill cranes, geese, ducks, songbirds, and pelicans!
