Trinity River Fishing Report

Arrow Thin Left Icon

John Slubowski’s Trout And Steelhead reports on 10.29.2015

Trinity River

The flows on the Trinity River are down to 300 cfs and will remain there until Mother Nature cooperates in the form of rain. The lower flows are making it a little more difficult for the drift boats, but rafts and wade fishermen are having no problems. The good news is that the fishing is excellent, with steelhead being hooked from Lewiston all the way down to Willow Creek. The weekends are definitely the busiest time with both float fishermen and wade fishermen occupying some of the most popular spots. Fishing with nymphs under strike indicators is working best; the top flies have been stone fly patterns, copper johns and various may fly patterns. Spey fishermen have been doing well in the Junction City and Del Loma areas, swinging streamers and nymphs. Give us a call, text or email for more info or to book a trip.

Lower Sacramento

John Slubowski’s Trout And Steelhead 530-545-1580

The flows on the Lower Sacramento River have been at a constant 6800 cfs and the fishing is good! Salmon are throughout the upper floats, crowding into their spawning grounds. Large trout can now be found below these spawning salmon, gorging on their eggs, so don’t forget egg patterns like the Bazooka and Glow Bugs.  Please remember NOT to wade or anchor near any spawning salmon to protect the next generation of these amazing fish. The Lower Sac is fishing awesome for Large Rainbow Trout from Sundial Bridge all the way to Jelly’s Ferry. The most consistent hatches have been may flies in sizes 18 and 16 along with various types of caddis from size 18 to 14. Steelhead and salmon can also be found from Ball’s Ferry down to Jelly’s Ferry. Egg patterns seem to work best when targeting a steelhead on the lower river.
