Summer run Steelhead are starting to show in the Trinity River. Catch rates have been you can expect things to start picking up here over the next couple weeks. Drifting eggs has been the ticket but a few guys winging flies and dead-drifted nymphs are catching as well. The average size is running from 4-8lbs which are perfect for the dinner table. Just make sure they’re hatchery fish because wild steelhead are catch and release only on the Trinity.
Steelhead can be found throughout the entire river system and there is plenty of fishing access if you looking for a place to get on and fish. There are also several Trinity River fishing guides that service the area. To find the best spots you should hire a guide so you can learn the river and know the best holes to fish.
Thanks for reading our Trinity River fishing report. Stay tuned for more in the near future.
