Trinity River Salmon Guides & Klamath River Fishing Guides Salmon & Steelhead Report

Trinity River - Douglas City, CA

by Dave Jacobs

Trinity river fishing for salmon has been slow for the most part with mostly small jack salmon being caught with a few larger salmon on occassion. Most of the fall run salmon are in the lower Trinity and Klamath river. Most Spring salmon are in the upper river near Lewiston, Ca. and are mostly old and dark salmon as reported by Trinity river salmon guides. Flows are now stable at 450 cfs and will stay at that release until the end of this month. Larger salmon are hard fighting salmon 8 to 12 pounds on average with the occasional salmon in the 20 pound class a real possibility on the Trinity river this season. Trinty river salmon guides are side drifting and back bouncing roe being best technique for bank and boat fishermen. More Fall run salmon and steelhead will begin to show for Trinity river fishing in the coming weeks as more and more fish enter the Klamath river. The Trinity and Klamath rivers are two of the three rivers in California that anglers can keep salmon this time of year. Salmon are entering the Klamath river but fishing is hot one day and cold the next all depending what days you are fishing as reported by Klamath river salmon guides. Gillnetting in and around the mouth of the Klamath has slowed down early this week with no set or drift nets in the rivers mouth on Wednesday and Thursdays as witnessed by Klamath river salmon guides. The chance of bigger salmon moving upriver increasing everyday for Klamath river fishing. Tribal subsitence netting is permitted at the time of this report. The Klamath and Trinity river's will be the only river's besides the Smith river that angler's can keep salmon on this season with the Sacramento river offering a very small salmon season from November 1st to December 31st from Red Bluff diversion dam downstream to Knight's Landing as reported by Sacramento river salmon guides.
