Confluence Outfitters Fishing Report

Up-to-date fishing reports on rivers in northern California and southern Oregon from the guides at Confluence Outfitters

 We've had plenty of weather up on the Trinity over the last several days, heavy snow on Wenesday night with snow levels down to 1000 feet or lower, that led to into a cold drizzle Thursday, Friday was fairly mild until a heavy rain started around 4 pm and lasted through the night. As of this morning the river high and chocolate brown and is blown out below Rush creek, you might be able to find a little fishable water up around Lewiston.

I guided Larry and Henry from the East Bay over the past two days, Thursday we fished indicators from the boat and came up bagles, Friday we swithced to swing fishing with Spey rods and both guys were able to hook into adult steelhead but unfourtunatly weren't able to bring either fish to hand. It was Awesome to see that the boys where able to swing up a couple of Steelhead in 40 degree water !

I would think that the upper river above Weaver Creek should be fishable by tomorrow. Tight Lines !

It's been a pretty scratchy couple of weeks on the Trinity River.  Fish have been scattered and it's been rare to catch more than one fish out of a spot.  Today was pretty much the same for clients Steve and Dana from Chico until about 4pm.  They both had a brief hookup under their belt by then and we weren't expecting much more action before we hit the take out.  Then we found a pod of fish!  Steve started with a small wild adult steelie which made our day.  Then Dana hooked and landed a 28" hatchery hen that gave him a great fight.  In the diminishing light they both had another brief hookup and then Dana landed an even bigger fish, a 29" wild buck that we chased downstream.  It was a great end to a beautiful day on the water.

I just finished up two days with Steve and Jon from the Sacramento area.  We covered a lot of water, including a float near Lewiston and one near Junction City.  Fish are dispersed right now and it's hard to get more than one out of a single spot.  Steve and Jon hooked 3-4 adults apiece in two days off fishing plus numerous half-pounders.  The average size fish is pretty good right now.  We hooked one smaller adult around 3 pounds but the rest were 5-9 pounds.  All of the fish we landed were wild.  Traffic is light to moderate and the weather is beautiful.

The Trinity continues to give up a few fish here and there, saw a few more fish on the move yesterday, we had a few encounters and Jay swung up a nice one at the final run of the day ! Those memories stick with you for a while...the weather is forecast to be realatively mild for this coming week.

Fishing continues to be up and down on the Trinity, today was an Up Day ! Mark and Jay swung up four adult Steelhead today, I think that could be considered a good a day of swing fishing any where, especialy this Season on the Trin. As I said before the best fishing reports are the ones you make yourself, get out there, there is plenty of Season left, we should start to see the first of our Winter run around the Holidays...Tight Lines !

Had a swing trip with Kayla and Mac from Fish First Fly Shop in Chico on Saturday. It was a cold and blustery day, and the river was on the rise, but we still had of fun on the water. We focused on spey casting techniques and reading water. Kayla also caught her first Trinty river steelhead. I think her smile says it all.

I just finished up a trip with the Diablo Valley Fly Fishers.  These guys and gals made a lot of good drifts the last two days but the fish were elusive.  Bill King, the group leader, managed to land a beautiful fish the first day.  We are all hoping that the storm forecast for this weekend spikes the flows and brings in some new fish.  Right now 1 adult fish in a day per boat is a good day on the Trinity.

The conditions on the Trinity continue to be good with good air and water temps and clarity, still not a lot of Steelhead around though. There seems to be more fish upriver in the Lewiston to Bucktail area, down river the Steelhead seem to move through fairly quickly, if your in the right area at the right time you could have some pretty good fishing ! Over the past two weeks I've had days were we've hooked as many as 5 adults in a day to days were we didn't get touched. The weather forecast is calling for more rain over the coming week, hopefully that will jump-start the fishing a bit. Tight Lines.

Floated Bonny to Balls on Saturday, November 12th.  Had a blast with two beginners.  Fishing was good when it was warm out.  PMD's worked well in the morning.  Hooked what looked to be a steelhead above Haas Riffle (below Anderson River Park).  It jumped twice, one time esclipsing the sun and leaving us in total darkness before spitting the hook.

Took Ray and John down the Lower Sac on Saturday. Fishing was pretty slow most of the day. There were a couple of places where we ran into a few but for the most part a pretty inconsistent day.  With the shorter days now, we were treated to a great shot of the super moon over Mt. Lassen as we finished the drift. Still a great day.
