Trinity color keeps biting

Trinity River - Douglas City, CA

by Kenny Priest

Fishing from Douglas City to Del Loma, Steve Huber of Steve Huber’s Guide Service reports it was nice to see rain last week. “We did get some color to the river on Sunday from the fire in Junction City. They released the smolts from the hatchery, so it’s nearly impossible to fish bait. We switched over to plugs, making it a little bit easier to get down to the steelhead. Most the steelhead we are seeing are in the four to six-pound range. There are still a few salmon around and up on their beds. Fly guys are finding success with stones and egg imitations and some of the bank anglers  are out there with nightcrawlers and roe. Most of the fishermen are concentrated in the Junction City to Del Loma stretch.” Huber added.
