The lower Trinity has been pretty good with steelhead action from Hoopa, to Junction City but a good rain is what we need to open the sandbar at the Klamath for a fresh run of fish. We have seen a productive return of hatchery steelhead in the upper trinity in the over the past month but we are counting on the first rain of winter to push up some good numbers! Over all, the end of fall leading into winter looks promising thus far.
Lake Shasta is still producing nice rainbows and Brown’s but the last numbers of bait fish (have scattered) and fish are being caught deeper on the wire and the bite is slower than it has been in the previous months. Still, we are smiling and having fun!
Trinity Lake is fishing fair. There is still time to hit it hard in search of monster rainbows and kings before the first snows that will make access available on a day-to-day basis.
It looks like it’s going to be a great winter for steelhead fishing on the Trinity and I can’t wait for the rains to come!
