Trinity River Report by DJ Spivey

The Trinity river being a migratory steelhead river is met with a no expectations attitude while you step into a run or boat each morning. Today began the same as any others but after some great rainfall the water clarity was great and we set off with high hopes!! As the day went on and we had only came in contact with a few half pounders in the morning we were met with an amazing afternoon filled with many grabs and great fish! Golden stones, rubber legs, and beads of different sizes and colors worked the best for us today! Im quite flexible throughout February for trips on the lower sac and trinity, with the rivers refreshed from all the precipitation the north state has been receiving some great fishing lies ahead!!

Trinity River Report by DJ Spivey

My uncle Bob and his cousin Dennis took a trip up from Los Molinos to come spend a couple days with me on the Trinity River. Our game plan with 2 days ahead of us was too fish in the junction city area our first day and the Douglas city area our second day. Both floats did not let us down withholding fresh winter run steelhead and even a few browns along the way. The weather has been great in the afternoons while still holding that steelhead fishing chill in the mornings as you push off the bank into the foggy river every morning. All in all these last few days have been nothing but a great time enjoying what the trinity has to offer from its stunning fish to the spectacular landscape that surrounds you.

Trinity River Report by Luke Geraty

Had the pleasure of spending two days with counsins, Chuck and Mark, on the Trinity. The water color is still FANTASTIC, but the flows have definitely dropped and we're back to working a bit harder than a few weeks ago. Our first day started out excellent. We hooked a number of smaller fish and one nice adult... all in the first couple of hours. The rest of the day, however, was no bueno. Temperature wise, it was cold. And by "cold" I do mean that our rod guides were freezing. The mist never really burned off completely and the afternoon or casting and casting set us up to fish hard the next day. And fish hard, we did! Day two was much better and we hooked a good deal of adults throughout the day, including Chuck's unicorn brown trout and Mark's 26+ inch wild hen. Guiding these two is ALWAYS a lot of fun and we definitely had a great time. Most of the fish were caught on stone flies or mayfly patterns. We got a few more weeks of really solid steelheading ahead of us, so make sure to get a day on the calendar!
