Steelhead still Good, Salmon and Water on the Way Soon!
Steelhead fishing remains good. The beginning of last week was a little spotty, but in the last 3 days, fishing for summerruns has gotten very good once again. The Salmon are still absent upriver, but this will change very shortly. There will be water released from the Trinity River beginning this Sunday, and when that water reaches the lower river it should drive the fish to make their move. The reports I've been hearing from the mouth of the river have been nothing short of unbelievable. I talked to a friend who was down there yesterday and said that he and his group of buddies hooked 50 to 70 large (20 lb+) king salmon apiece (!) during an afternoon of fishing. That pretty much equated to a hookup a cast. I know this sounds like B.S., but he's a super reliable source and he's not the only one I'm hearing reports like this from.
Give me a call or email for open days, as they are being booked pretty quickly. It's going to be a fun season and I hope to see you all out there!
