The Trinity River was a bit scratchy this past week, not sure if it’s due to a gap of fish or just the pressure the river has had recently. Veteran’s Day week was exceptionally busy… rafts, boats, bankies… many people were out enjoying the river!
There are some good fish to be found if you work hard and cover water. Right now, I would say that the anglers who know the river well and have experience are finding a few adult steelhead each day. Sometimes just being at the right place and time works, too, It’s steelhead fishing!!
If you come for trout fishing numbers you might want to fish elsewhere, but if you fish with a positive attitude and enjoy the experience for what it really is – then you just may experience what you seek. The river is beautiful in November! There are a lot of half pounders in the system currently; so a few good tugs keep the mind focused and the heart pumping throughout the day.
