Swingin em up on the Trin…

I spent the last three days guiding the Trinity for Winter Steelhead “On the Swing” and I would consider the fishing pretty good ! Early to mid January in my experience seems to yeild some of the best Winter Steelheading of the Season on the Trinity, we averaged a little better then 1 adult per day per angler, for Winter steelheading I would consider that good, the Steelhead on the Trin currenty are NOT spread out evenly from Lewiston to Pigeon Point, which makes me think that they are moving quite a bit right now, not necessarliy stacking up in a given area, “if your not finding em…move !”

Fall run Winding Down

The Summer/ Fall Steelhead angling is winding down now, we should Start to see a push of Fresh Winter fish right after the first of the year. There are Steelhead in the Trinity from Lewistion to Witchepec right now but it’s spoty. My clients this past week have Swung up some nice wild fish but they’re working for them…hmmm, sounds alot like Steelheading !I would rate the current angling on the Trinity fair to good dependiong upon your expectations.Merry Christmas and Tight Lines…

The conditions on the Trinity remain the same, LOW-CLEAR-COLD, there are fish spread throughout the system,with a heavier concentration in the upper river, Lewiston…The forecasters are becoming more confident about some precip coming in around the 20th, hopefully enough to raise the flows as well as the water temps…regardless, if you put the time in you’ll find a fish or two-Tight Lines

Lower Sac Swing

The Lower Sac Swing fishing has been good to Great, with a mix of Wild Bo’s to 4lbs and a mix of hatchery and Wild Steelhead to 6lbs. There coming on both the Swung fly and Tight Line Nymph techniques, most days offer shots at rising fish with the DryFly as well.At times we’re working hard for them and some are coming more easily, bottom line is they are there for the wading angler looking to put in the effort.Tight Lines-

The Lower Sac is fishing pretty good for Rainbow’s and Steelhead on the Swing and offering fairly consistant hatches durring the day for the Dry Fly Angler, I use a jet boat to access the River for Wading Anglers and it’s countless Bars and Brakes ! The Trinity has steelhead from top to bottom with lots of pressure, especially on the weekends, some anglers are getting em , some anglers are paying there dues. I would rate it as fair. Flows on the Trinity are schedules to drop to 300cfs out of Lewiston on Tuesday…LOW and CLEAR…the ever present Steelheading mantra of “we could use some rain to shake things up” is currently in effect.Tight Lines-

Winter Steelhead

Winter Steelheading continues on…we’re still seeing New Wild Winter Steelhaed push into the Trinity, the numbers don’t seem to be quite as good as they were a couple weeks ago but still good fishing. We’ve had a bit of rain and snow over the past week, water flows are up and a little color has been added, water temps have dropped a few degrees over the past week, that may have slowed the fishing a bit. I think Swinging for Winter Steelhead on the Trinity will be Well Worth the effort for at least a couple more weeks.Tight Lines…
