Trinity River: , by Peter Santley: Winter Is Here!: 3 stars

Winter has arrived on the Trinity! Rain ,snow,fog and steelhead. I have had a great fall season on the Trinity for steelhead fishing and now shifting fears to winter conditions. I spent the last three days guiding clients on the Trinity both nymphing and swinging. Client Ken tried a nymph and swing combo and it went well. He brought a brand new Sage X 5wt Spey rod set up by Ashland Fly Shop . The rod cast effortlessly for Ken and half way through his first swing run he connected with a 25 in steelhead to break in the new Sage X. Congrats Ken! We had a great day fishing together with other fish caught and lost on the nymph rig also. Combo trips have done well this season. The last two days my Clients were nymphing and did well both days with a top fish of 28 inches. I posted a picture of the 28 incher by Jon.on Friday. I am booking winter dates now January into March. With recent storms and more on way the stage is set for a good winter steelhead season . It's time to get on the books and come out and play!
