The middle klamath and lower trinity continue to kick out solid fishing. Not spectacular but solid. We had a really tough day on Friday with a fair number of fish showing but not biting well. It was still on the way down from rain and looked to be in good shape but the fish just seemed to be unsettled. Saturday we landed a few salmon and an adult steelhead with about 20 halfpounders. Today I snuck over to the coast for a day where we had good action in the morning landing a pair in the 30 lb range. Here’s a picture of Joe Ringer holding a big buck he caught on a kwickfish.

We’ve got our first real rain of the season on Tuesday and Wednesday putting some water in all our rivers. The Smith went bonkers for one day with big chrome salmon bitting just about any lure you wanted to put in the water today but it appears the bite will be short lived as it’s dropping out fast. You should have been here yesterday rings true again. Most of the other coastal streams got a good push of salmon as well but with things drying out I’ll be back on the Trinity and Klamath tomorrow. Before the rain we had solid fishing with good numbers of steelhead and more kings pushing in and I’m sure it’ll pick back up where it left off. The picture is of a dime bright salmon caught backbouncing roe on the Trinity. Nice fish Dean.

The past few days have shown an upswing in the bite as well as new pushes of fish arriving. kings silvers and steelhead are all charging into the Trinity as we speak and it sounds like there’s another good batch behind these. The mouth of the Klamath finally broke open again a couple days ago and with it came the big slug of fish we were expecting. It looks like the next few weeks are primed for some great action. Here’s a picture of a perfect 12 lb wild steelhead we caught a couple days ago.

It’s been an interesting week with lots of fish in both the Klamath and Trinity but for some reason they’ve been reluctant to bite. I was just chalking it up to the scorching hot weather but that’s been over for a few days now and the water temperature is perfect. Despite the tough bite we’re still putting fish in the boat with some really nice steelhead up to 12 pounds and for salmon the week was topped by a 40 lb monster
