Trinity River: , by Brian Kohlman: 4 stars

With the flows getting ramped back up to 40,000 cfs, it left all of us scrambling to reschedule our Lower Sac trips. This typically isn’t a problem, but this weekend’s 2-day float that was booked back in November and with six busy lives - rescheduling was not an option. Okay, we can fish the Trinity instead. That was the plan until they decided to bump the flows up to 11,000 cfs on Sunday. We fished the Trinity on Saturday and were fortunately given access to Eagle Canyon Trophy Trout Lake on Sunday!

Due to scheduling issues, I worked with Peter Santley and Kevin Kay on Saturday and all three boats did very well! My guests Ted and Peter each landed a native adult and several half-pounders. Peter and Kevin had similar results, so not only was the weather ideal, the fishing was great.

We shifted gears and fished Eagle Canyon on Sunday. Today, I was working with Scott Saiki and Mike Wright and it was a very good day. Everyone hooked into fish and quickly learned these monsters are a challenge to land on 4x tippet! We were given lemons, but with the hard work and help of my colleagues, we made lemonade!
