No salmon punch cards required for Trinity/Klamath Rivers

Klamath River - Middle

by Kenny Priest

According to the CA Dept. of Fish and Wildlife, during the salmon closures on both the Klamath and Trinity Rivers, you do not need to have a salmon punch card while angling for steelhead. But you will need one if you plan on fishing the Smith River, per usual. As a reminder, the Klamath is currently closed to salmon fishing and the Trinity will close beginning Sept. 1. Both rivers will remain open to steelhead fishing. For the complete list of Klamath/Trinity regulations, visit

Find "Fishing the North Coast" on Facebook and for up-to-date fishing reports and North Coast river information. Questions, comments and photos can be emailed to [email protected].
