Trinity River steelhead!

Trinity River - Douglas City, CA

by Jeff Goodwin

The Trinity River is still kicking out some great steelhead and we're seeing about 5-10 steelhead landed on most trips, sometimes more.  We've got great conditions and we have more rain in the forecast which will help to pull more steelhead up into the Lewiston area.  Top producer techniques include drifting Pautzke Fire Cure eggs and tossing bobber combos in the deeper sections of the river.  Pressure hasn't been too bad and its looking like we'll be fishing well into March again this year.
