The Trinity has received more rain this past week, Thursday nights rain was heavy enough to blow most of the river out, still a welcome sight. The river temps have remained fairly warm, between 48 and 50 degrees which is great for this time of year and the Steelhead are still reacting in a positive way toward a well swung fly! We’ve hooked and landed multiple Steelhead this past week on the swung fly, both late fall fish and some bright, hot early winter fish !
The recent rains have the Steelhead moving once again, fishing has been good for some and tough for others. Water temps remain in the fifties and my clients continue to land Steelhead on the swing! The river below Pigeon Point has been blown for much of this past week, the rest of the river has been a little high at times but the color has remained good.The forecast are calling for a significant storm coming in mid week, check the flows before you come, we should start to see the leed edge of the Trinity River Winter Run sometime over the next couple of weeks.
We have been receiving some much needed rain up here, albeit not as much as forecast. The river has bumped up a little and is in great shape, the fishing has been ok, there are fish around but not in great numbers. I think most of the summer/fall run has pushed on and we are waiting on the winter run to start showing. The water temps have been holding in the low 50s and the swing fishing has remained solid.
