Howdy Folks
  Steelheading out here on the Trinity has been, well steelheading. It's a real good time not to worry about how many fish you can catch, but to worry about how well you can fish for the one that is out there waiting for the perfect drift. By that I mean stay focused even though the fish are fewer and further apart that the last few season's. Work on your presentation, stay positive and the fish will eventually come. When you have to work hard for hook-up's it really does make them that much sweeter. I would like to thank Mike W. and JB for a really enjoyable day on the river and the positive vibes. These guy's fished their butt's off for one hook-up, the fish put up one heck of a fight and we never got a look, but I'm pretty sure JB will remember the fish we never saw for some time. The way these guy's fish and the positive attitude I can tell they have alot of good fishing in their future. Guy's like them get me all pumped up about the fact that catching definitly is not fishing! Fish on Travis

The river has been getting hit with lot's of rain.The steelhead flyfishing has been good with some great day's thrown in.Catching the river at the right flow's is the trick right now.If you find a stretch of river that is not blown out you should be able to get into fish.If it look's to high or muddy move up stream until you find an area with at least 2 to 4 feet of visibility and work it hard.I have been having better luck in riffles and pocket water rather than the deep hole's, with the flow's up the fish are on the move and not really stacking up anywhere.The salmon are on their redds(spawning bedds)so keep an eye out for them because there is almost alway's some fish gorging on eggs below them.When fishing a spawning bed please make sure not to disturb the salmon in any way, they are our future.Never fish for the salmon themseves, walk on or below their bed or drop anchor on or below their spawning bed.I see way to many fly fisherman trying to fish a redd and stumble out there all excited, scare the salmon away then walk all over the redd wondering where all the fish went.PLEASE RESPECT THE RIVER AND THE FISH IN IT! Good luck out there Travis 530-623-4695
