 2019 Trinity River Steelhead and Salmon Fishing Report, map and Hunting Areas

Fishing Reports

December 23, 2016 – Last week fresh steelhead made their way to the Trinity River just before the creeks rapidly rose and blew away most of their water due to a big winter storm. Fishing is expected to improve again next week, but might be challenged by freezing temperatures.

About Trinity River

From its source in the Trinity Alps to the Lewiston Dam, and further downstream,  the Trinity meets  the Klamath River.  In total it flows some 170 miles before reaching the Pacific Ocean.

There are amazing numbers of trout in this river, and it is not unusual to hook and land  5 to 10 adult steelhead of 5 to 8 lbs in a weekend.

The Trinity River produces an decent return of steelhead every year in the 6 to 10 pound range.
It is fly fishing catch and release only in the waters below the dam to the old Lewiston bridge.

Chinook (King) and Coho Salmon show up towards the end of the the late summer and fall. The steelhead follow the salmon from early October through November,  through February and sometimes into  March.

It follows logic to fish early in the season  in the lower stretches of the Trinity.
We recommend the middle section late in the season, around the Steel Bridge past Del Loma, Willow Creek and Hoopa.  ,

Standard fly fish technique is nymphing  with a floating line and an indicator .

Bring a 6 to 8 weight rod with WF (weight forward) floating line, some waders and dress for the conditions..

Favorite nymphs include Prince nymphs,  Golden Stones Hare’s Ear. Recommended wet flies from size 6 to 8 would be: Assassins Moss Backs Silver Hilton , Burlap and Brindle Bug.
