Special Closures for Thermal Refugia in Klamath River Watershed
A 200-foot radius* at the confluence of each of the following
waters with the Klamath River is Class A:

Therefore, the effective closure at thermal refugia locations is a 500-foot radius from the center-line of the confluence of the tributary stream with the mainstem river.
