The Trinity River in the Douglas city area was at 1,600 cfs this morning and dropping, the water color was a perfect steelhead green color, at these flows it makes it a challenge to find fish in certain spots, the flows are dropping fast, by Sunday and next it will be perfect to find a big winter steelhead. 

both fly fishing and spin fishing has been productive, fly fishing you will want a number #6 blk pats rubber leg. With a hard or soft bead just below that in orange or peach color. 

spin fishing- all you need is properly cured salmon or steelhead eggs in orange or pink color, side drift good eggs and hang on!!!  

We are first aid, CPR approved and USCG approved. We hold special use permit for the Six Rivers National Forest/Trinity National Forest also.

We are on the water over 260 days a year its what we do full time.
