Hey the fishing on the Trinity River is on fire!

Trinity River - Douglas City, CA

by The Fly Shop

Current River Conditions: Trinity flows are 833 cfs! Lonnie Boles told us this week the fishing on the Trinity is excellent! He reported in with this to say last week and it's the same old thing this week:

"Hey the fishing on the trinity is on fire! Salmon,steelhead and browns! High water pushed a lot of fish up! A lot of big browns on the bite. Browns pushing 25" and adult steelhead up to 28 and tons of salmon"

Hot flies have been the TDF GBRL Prince. Get some!

Also, if you want to find great fishing near Lewiston, Ca and the Trinity River, we recommend Lewiston Lake!

The Fly Shop's Tips: A variety of techniques, using your 8-9wt rod for Salmon (in July-August), or a more adaptable 5-6 wt fly rod for small steelhead and aggressive browns will tie you into fish. Suspending nymphs under an indicator, stripping buggers and leeches, swinging muddlers or PT nymphs will produce hook-ups! Even dry flies should be in the plan. Bring a parachute Adams! Hey! In July-August, the King Salmon will eat nymphs suspended under indicators. What a blast!

Road Conditions: Road conditions are great! It's summer! Expect delays west of Redding as you approach the twisty turney road leading up to Buckhorn Summit. Serious road work going on! Sometimes the delays can be 30 minutes long. Call 1-800.427.7623 for up to date Northern California Road Conditions.
