Trinity River Fish Report

Trinity River - Douglas City, CA

by Craig Nielsen

Fishing this fall on the Trinity was fair to good for the most seasoned anglers, but poor for those less familiar with the river. With low, cold crystal clear water fish have "tanked" so even when you get the fish to take the bite has been soft. The biggest problem has not been a lack of fish, but the lack of rainfall so the fish are not moving and stale as a result. The good news is that with steelhead in the system, warm temps and a few storms in the forecast the fish should get back on the grab and we could be seeing some great days coming this winter as well. Eggs, stonefly nymphs, PT's and Copper Johns have all found fish. Swinging successfully for fish recently has been difficult at best.
