Trinity River Fly Fishing
When West Coast Steelhead fishermen talk about Steelhead fishing and Steelhead rivers, their next breath is about Trinity River Fly Fishing, because it's that good!
The Trinity River, from 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 Trinity river in late July to early August and hang out in the lower Trinity until they begin their migration up-river. We start fishing for these chrome bright "silver bullets" on the lower river in August, and then follow the runs up-river.
We use traditional Steelhead techniques, swinging wet flies, skating dries and dead drifting nymphs with single-handed, switch, and spey rods. All fishing is primarily wade fishing, but runs too deep to wade are fished from a drift boat 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!
We will show you how to set up a spey rod with the proper reel, line, leaders and flies.
We can teach a few basic spey casts to get you started spey fishing, and have rods available for use.
Bob - Thanks again, for a great time on the Trinity, on Saturday and Sunday, Nov. 10 & 11. Evelio and I learned alot, as usual, and I can now take catching a Steelhead off my wish list.
