Trinity River Salmon Guides Salmon & Steelhead Report

Trinity River - Douglas City, CA

by Dave Jacobs

Trinity river fishing for salmon has not changed much this week 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. The first significant Fall rains did arrive Thursday thru Saturday and with the small river rise on both the Klamath and Trinity river look for groups salmon and steelhead to move upriver. 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. The Trinity and Klamath rivers are two of the three rivers in California that anglers can keep salmon this time of year. Larger salmon are still entering the Klamath river mouth with good counts a few days this past week as reported by Klamath river salmon guides. 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.
