The Trinity River is still very low and the two days of rain we got this week only bumped flows slightly.  There are steelhead in the Trinity, but the bites are tough with the current low and clear conditions.  With no rain in sight, its likely going to be without change until we get some rain sometime in December.  Captain Justin Thompson got his clients into a handful of good steelhead yesterday on the Trinity, but said it was tough fishing overall.  Theres still hope for a good season ahead, we just need some more rain.
