Lost Coast Outfitters reports on 3.23.17
Steelhead season is winding down everywhere but on the Trinity the beat goes on. It hasn’t been the best season for sure, but there are still a few steelies and the odd brown around to bend your rod.
Flows are quite high, but what else is new? Stick to the upper river from the fly-only water down to Douglas City area. Despite the high water, the river is still much clearer than the Yuba, Lower Sac or just about anything else. That bodes well for fish seeing your offerings.
Think stoneflies, copper johns, glo bugs and the like. If you’re swinging, sink-tips and smaller intruder type patterns are the flavor of the day.
