River Fly Fishing
West Coast Steelhead fishermen talk about Steelhead
fishing and Steelhead rivers, their next breath is about
Trinity River Fly Fishing...because it's that
Trinity River, from the Steelhead and Salmon hatchery
at the base of Lewiston dam, flows West to the confluence
on the Klamath River and offers some
of the best Steelhead fishing in the Pacific Northwest.
Steelhead start showing up in the lower river in late July
to early August and hang out in the lower Trinity
until the rain starts in September and start their migration
up-river. We start fishing for these chrome bright "silver
bullets" on the lower river in August, and then follow
the run up-river.
traditional Steelhead techniques, swinging wet flies, skating
dries or dead drifting nymphs with single-handed, Switch
and Spey Rods.
are many words and expressions to describe "the grab"
of a Steelhead take and the acrobatics and screaming
runs that occur immediately following. For those who have
experienced this...you know! For those who have not yet
had the experience...HANG ON!!! All fishing is primarily
wade fishing, but runs too deep to wade are fished from
a driftboat or raft. Walk-ins are offered, also.
The Trinity is the perfect size of river to learn
how to Spey Cast and Fish. Over the past few
years there has been a tremendous interest in learning this
way of casting and fishing and rightfully so...IT'S FUN!!
you have a Spey or Switch rod...don't
leave it home. If you want to learn how to Spey Cast
and Fish and don't have a rod...we have rods that you
will show you how to set up a Spey Rod with the proper
reel, line, leaders and flies.
can teach a few basic Spey Casts to get you started
professional advice is...TRY IT - YOU'LL LIKE IT!!
