Trinity River: , by Peter Santley: Fly Only Water Opener: 3 stars

On April 1st the Fly Fishing Only section opens on the upper Trinity. If conditions are right this can be a lot of fun. Primarily walk and wade fishing in a bit smaller water than down river. With good hatches of BWOs , March browns, calibaetis, on the right day the steelhead will eat dries. You can also swing or nymph the area. Last year I spent part of two days there sight fishing with March brows and had a blast. I was fishing a 5wt with 4x leader and size 14 parachute Adam's and other March brown patterns. Over two days I hooked 6 adults and landed 4 all on dries.
This section has a short window before the spring flush in later April.
I have openings and would love to guide the first half of April there if interested I have available dates.
The Trinity is currently fishing well with very little pressure.
Get outside away from crowds and do some fishing with us. Book your trip soon.
