Trinity River: , by Luke Geraty: Steelhead, where art thou?: 2 stars

Tony and Alan joined me for a day on the Trinity and boy did we fish hard! These guys can cast, mend, and have spent a lot of time on the Trinity, not to mention have spent a lot of time fly fishing. Despite the conditions being REALLY TOUGH for steelheading (i.e., low flows, crystal clear water, & bright sun), we managed to hook a few fish. Early in the float Tony hooked something that we never got to really see, so we can't confirm whether it was an adult or not, but whatever it was managed to break the hook on the nymph. Yes... break... the... hook. *sigh* But we kept at it and by the end of the day both of these gents landed a fish, hooked a few rocks and trees, and had a great time plus some fun stories. I've been busy on the river the past few weeks and by the time I'm home from the Trinity and have everything ready for the next day, I'm passing out. These winter steelhead days can sure take it out of you... but it sure is worth it when you hook up with an adult!
