Trinity River: , by Peter Santley: Winter Steelhead: 3 stars

Its definitely winter steelhead fishing on the Trinity river now. Fog, rain, snow and short days. Winter steelhead are constantly moving and a trick to locate. We find them good one day and can't find them the next day. This is true steelhead fishing. Nymphing has been better lately as water temps have dropped. You can still swing one up if you commit to it. A good shot of rain could fire things up and also warm water a bit. The last 30 days have been some of the best of the season including some larger fish.
Winter run is mostly wild fish and they seem to keep moving headed to the tributaries to spawn. Generally January and February fish well especially after some rain. The forecast next week looks a bit cold with some snow showers. True steelhead weather prevails. We have guides to get you on the river also multiple boat trips for groups. We would live to spend a day or days with you hunting the steelies down. Plenty of available dates. You won't catch them reading this report so book a trip and join us on the river.
Good fishing,
