TRINITY RIVER LATE SEASON TRY IT!

Filed under: Guide Trip Reports — Peter at 2:23 pm on Wednesday, January 30, 2013

Late season steelhead fishing on the Trinity River can be a great time.February and March still offer good fishing for steelhead with some brown trout mixed in.We should see longer and warmer days with hatches of mayflies and stoneflies bringing steelhead and browns to the surface on the right day.The river is less crowded and fishes well on many different stretches of the river.Last year I had some of my best fishing in March with some large browns to go with the steelhead we were catching.If you have not been to the Trinity this year it’s not too late!. My two day special of $700.00 for two days of float fishing with rods, flies and lunch included for one or two persons.One day float trips are $400.00 per day. Since last weeks rain fishing has picked up with fresh fish moving into the system.You can call me for available dates at (530) 318-7073 or e-mail to peter@tahoeflyfishing.com
With good results on recent trips don’t miss it! You may have a chance to get a steelhead on a dry fly. What could be better. We still have Drift,dine and stay packages through Indian Creek Lodge starting at $950.00 for two nights lodging,two days of drift boat fishing and$100.00 dollars in dinner certificates and can be split by two people.Please call me for any more information.
Thanks and good fishing,

EAST WALKER RIVER A WINTER OPTION !

Filed under: Guide Trip Reports — Peter at 12:02 pm on Tuesday, January 29, 2013

Winter fishing on the East Walker River can be rewarding.Fishing with dries or nymphs can be very productive,with mostly midges on the menu.Low winter flows require lightly weighted or no weight on nymph rigs and small tippets on dry flies.With cold nights best fishing has been from late morning into the middle of the afternoon.As we get into February we should start seeing increased hatches of midges and blue wing olive mayflies.Streamers can be effective at times in deeper runs but slow your presentation down.Late winter on the East Walker has been some of my best guide trips of the season the last few years.I am looking forward to another good season on the East Walker and hope you can join us on the river soon.Hungry browns and rainbows will be active on warmer days.
