Trinity River: , by Luke Geraty: A Trinity 30 inch steelhead!: 4 stars

Chuck and Mark are long time Confluence guests and I've had the pleasure of guiding them before on the Sac... so we figured why not try the Trinity. If you've been following things related to steelhead world, you know that all we talk about is how badly we need rain, blah blah blah. It's obviously our default setting these days. But the day was booked and when you are chasing a fish of a thousand casts, you just have to go and pay your dues. Well by 11am we had hooked four adults... note that I said HOOKED, not landed. Two of them decided to "peace out" before we could put them in the net, but that's steelheading. It's what both drives you crazy and keeps you coming back. But what REALLY keeps you coming back are when you hook and land 30 inch steelhead on size 18 flies! And Mark did just that. The stars aligned and after a really long fight, we put that fish in the net. Chuck crushed it too because not only did he land a nice wild steelhead, he managed to get a beautiful brown trout on "Last Chance Riffle." It was a great day... hard to top considering what one should reasonably expect given the water clarity, lack of rain, and difficulty related to steelheading. Tomorrow we're gonna go check out the Sac, so hopefully our luck continues!
