Fishing Report

2019 Summer-Fall Fishing Report

The fishing this season has been incredible so far! All the water from this year’s wet winter has led to strong numbers of spring Chinook venturing up the river. Springer fishing was heavily limited this year but everyone who got out on the river until seasons’ end on August 31st had excellent days. We’re looking forward to what this fall season is going to bring, especially with normal limits in effect for our fall run salmon. Please note that the supplemental regulations that cover the Trinity & Klamath waters are incorrect, with the official limits listed in this California Department of Fish & Wildlife press release.

If you’re after Steelhead or Brown Trout, take a look at pages 14-17 of the official Supplemental Fishing Regulations. We’ve had a few anglers go out so far in search of chrome glory, and while everyone’s limiting it’s still tough fishing. Once they’re out in force and ready to go, we’ll be shouting it from the rooftops. 

Updates on day-to-day river conditions & our anglers reports can be found on our Instagram and Facebook pages.

We release a longer email version of our reports every quarter, which you can sign up for here.

You can also visit Confluence Outfitters or the The Fly Shop for regular fishing reports and tackle recommendations directly from the experts on the Trinity River.
