Four months of guiding in the Alaskan Bush has come to an end. A few days of R&R and I will be back on the lower Trinity and Klamath running trips for Fall Steelhead. Just wanted to share a few pics from the summer.
Fall is almost here and we are looking at another great season for steelheading on the Klamath and Trinity Rivers. We have seen good numbers of steelhead pushing into the lower Klamath over the last couple of months with numbers increasing in the last two weeks. We have seen some really nice half-pounders and adults taken on both the Lower Klamath in the glen and the lower Trinity below Willow Creek. As water temps begin to cool in the next week or so, there should be more fish pushing in making for some great swing fishing for steelhead. The early reports from the DFG weir in Willow Creek show very good numbers of both wild and hatchery steelhead moving through the lower river. As these numbers increase in the following 3 weeks we should see an excellent return of steelhead in the mid-lower Trinity river for Spey fishing in October and November. The same can be said for the Klamath. October and November are prime months for floating line fishing both the Klamath and Trinity Rivers. This is our favorite time of year to experience steelhead on skated dry and swung wet flies on or near the surface. We have a limited number of prime dates open in October to experience California’s finest Steelheading.
Available Dates: October 19, 20, 21, 22, 27, 28, 29, 30
