Trinity River Fly Fishing Report

Dave Neal reports on 2.8.19

Trinity River Steelhead

We had some violent storms this past week in Northern California.
The results of these storms have us slightly ahead (2”) of "normal" for
rainfall and looking good for water content in the snowpack. Woot Woot.
This is great news for salmon, steelhead and wild trout fisheries all over
California and especially here in the North state. Perhaps...

With several of the CA coastal rivers currently in shape and fishy the
upper Trinity has been fairly nice and quiet this week. Flows are
super fishable throughout the entire upper river so it becomes coin
toss each day on where we fish. I’ve been drifting Bucktail, Indian and
JC floats all this week with results about the same… fish are pretty
spread out and no...

Northern California Winter Steelhead Fly Fishing Report

Anthony Carruesco reports on 1.16.18

We’re in the heart of Winter Steelhead season in Northern California. The past few weeks have dealt us a couple of good windows to get after these fish. As many of you should know going into these pursuits; these fish don’t often come easy. Even when you happen to time the conditions just right, it ain’t a sure thing. Winter Steelhead fishing requires a strong...

Trinity River Fly Fishing Report

Dave Neal reports on 12.6.18

Here is a report for the Trinity River:

The amazing Trinity received a lot of rain over last week’s storm system. We thought she would blow out any day but the river held on until the very end… finally blowing out for just a day and a half over last weekend. As soon as it stopped raining the river was on the drop and clearing fast by 12/2/18

The river is back to low and...

Trinity River Fly Fishing Report

Anthony Carruesco reports on 11.29.18

The recent rains are a welcomed change of pace and it’s starting to smell a lot like Steelhead in Northern CA. We had a solid dose of rainfall in Shasta, Trinity and Siskiyou counties today. The rivers will rise a bit and get some much-needed color added to them. 

The Fishing on the Trinity River has been good over the past few days and should continue to stay...

Trinity River Fly Fishing Report

Trinity River


The Steelhead have arrived! They are distributed from Lewiston all the way down to the confluence of the Klamath River. The water is extremely low and clear so the fishing is technical.

Small flies and long drifts are the key to hooking fish. If you are swinging flies single handed or switch rods are all that is needed. The fishing will likely peak in...

Trinity River Fly Fishing Report

Dave Neal reports on 9.6.18

We may have finally turned the corner as far as smoke and air
quality in the north valley. Air conditions the last few days in and
around Redding have been stellar with cleaner air and blue skies. In
addition, the daytime highs have been cooler than average in the
high 80’s low 90’s this past week… Morning’s and evening’s have
that feel like fall is in the air!

Trinity River Fly Fishing Report

Dave Neal Reports on 3.1.2018

The Trinity River is still kicking out a few steelhead here and there but you really have to want it and persist. Mostly wild fish mixed with some nice halfies along with an occasional incidental downer. Late Feb/ March is a mixed bag. Any given day can be great, especially with some weather and rain in the forecast. The river has not been crowded and lately we’ve...

Lower Sacramento and Trinity Fly Fishing Report

Dave Neal Reports on 2.8.2018

Despite the fact we REALLY need some rain and snow to fall in Northern California I cannot complain with the weather lately. These past few weeks have been PERFECT fishing weather (that is if “perfect” means mild, cool-to-warm, with an abundance of sunny afternoons, temps in the 70’s). 

As an added bonus our local rivers have not been particularly busy lately. Many of...
