Trinity River Fly Fishing Report
Dave Neal Reports on 3.24.2016
The good old Trinity remains a viable option. I decided to venture
over the hill with 2 clients on Friday and we experienced a solid flurry
of caddis and mayfly activity mid-day providing some exciting dry fly
fishing for a few hours. Big browns and half pounders are the main
targets, with adult steelhead still possible on any cast. Pulling
streamers, dry/dropper fishing, along with indicator nymphing or
traditional swinging techniques will work at the right time and place.
Flows on the Douglas City/Steiner stretch are still a bit pushy but
fishable at 1,000cfs, above Indian Creek flows are around 600cfs
which is great. Basically, the drifts between Old Lewiston Bridge and
Indian Creek sections are probably the best bet as far as flows are
concerned. JC area might have more wild fish (you’re below more
tribs down there) but the flows are pretty steep holding around 2k.
Water clarity improves downriver due to influence of clear running
Road construction delays on 299 are back. I’m not sure of the exact schedule but plan on 20-45 minute delays going over Buckhorn.
