Nearly 30 miles long and up to eight miles wide, Upper Klamath Lake is the largest freshwater body west of the Rockies. It has a surface area of 91,000 acres and 98 miles of shoreline. Recreation facilities are managed for Reclamation by the U. S. Fish and Wildlife Service.[1]

Upper Klamath Lake is most famous for its Blue-Green Algae (Aphanizomenon flos-aquae)[2][3] which is often referred to as “Nature’s Perfect Superfood.”

The freshwater Klamath Blue Green Algae AFA grows naturally in Upper Klamath Lake in late summer and early fall in quantities sufficient to allow commercial harvesting.
