Trinity River steelhead are biting and the river is back in great shape after recent weather.Good flows and water conditions have brought in the winter run steelhead and they are responding well.Lots of fresh fish in the river and mild weather should make February a great month on the Trinity.Don’t miss out on this great oppurtunity to get in on some great steelhead fishing.We are getting into several fish a day with some brown trout in the mix.This last week the fish wer eating nymphs under indicators in colored water.Large egg patterns,stone fly and mayflie nymphs working well.The water is clearing and flows dropping which will increase surface activity with on browns and the occasional rising steelhead eating mayfly patterns.When fishing the Trinity we recommend booking two or more days to have the best chance to connect with some of these great fighting fish.I have a WINTER RUN SPECIAL $695.00 FOR TWO DAYS of guided drift boat fishing including tackle and lunch for one or two anglers.To book a trip call me at (530)318-7073 or call the shop at (530)541-8208.Please feel free to call with any questions you may have.I have a good lodging available at at Indian Creek Lodge in Douglas City ,please call for info.

East Walker River guide trips are getting excellent results.Monday we had two guide trips on the East Walker and both trips had great fishing on both dries and nymphs.The fish were eating midge patterns on the surface through the whole day.Numerous browns and rainbows came to the net and the fish were biting all day in great weather. The mild weather has made fishing unusually pleasant for this time of year.The forcast for the next week looks good so book a trip and let us show you a fun day.

Let’s go fishing!

Trinity River steelhead fishing has been great this season.Tahoe Fly Fishing and guide Peter Santley are now offering guided steelhead drift trips on the Trinity River.I was able to get a permit to guide the Trinity River and have a Winter Run Special $695.00 for two days of guided drift boat fishing for steelhead.Trips include tackle and lunch for one or two anglers.With the Trinity finally seeing some rain this week it should make what has been a good season even better.We should have good fishing on the Trinity River through February maybe early March.Winter run tends to have more wild fish and usually some of the largest steelhead of the season are caught,and the occasional sea run brown trout.If you would like to hook one of these fresh water freight trains give me a call  at (530) 318-7073 or our shop for booking at (530) 541-8208 or for information,lodging etc.I have the Indian Creek Lodge working with me to provide nice accomodations on the river in Douglas City,clean rooms,friendly staff and great location.I would like to thank fellow TFFO guide Corey Funk for the use of his drift boat to make this possible.

Come and feel the steel,

December and January fishing has been good and has been a good option as we wait for snow.It is winter fishing with low flows and selective fish.The warm part of the day has been best with midge dries and nymphs working well.We have had good results on recent guide trips.This fishery should continue to fish well between storm systems in February and March.This is a good way to take a brake from skiing or riding and get into some nice rainbows and browns.We have guidesa available seven days a week weather permitting.Speaking of weather the East Walker is a good place to fish when there is snow in Tahoe as the area gets a fraction of what we get at the lake.Let one of our guides show you a good day at the East Walker and you will be surprised at how much fun our winter fishing can be.Give us a call at (530) 541-8208 to book a trip!
