If we were to design a river with great numbers of fish, a diversity of water types, natural beauty, dependable fishing conditions, and make it the perfect size for beginner spey casters, it would probably look a lot like the Trinity River. Steelhead hold in many water types on the Trinity that can be fished effectively with a two-handed rod. The river is small enough that even beginner spey casters can almost reach the far bank in a lot of prime runs. Every year we get dozens of spey anglers into their first spey rod steelhead ever on the Trinity. Experienced spey casters have a good shot at hooking multiple fish each day.
