I hope all had a great Thanksgiving with family and hope you are getting ready for Christmas. I was away for Thanksgiving and with family down south and stuffed myself with turkey and pie. The north state had a bit of weather while I was away and it looked like the area tried to catch up with the rain fall. While...

In one week’s, time, many of the fish that had been held up below the Hoopa...

Sorry about no report last week but my area was on “Safety Power Shut Off” due to PG&E for Northern California.

With the cold winter like weather we...

Trinity River - Willow Creek Weir

The Fall weather has set in and it is looking more like the first part of Winter than Fall. There have been good spurts of fish coming up the valley but not like the usual Fall/Winter runs I’m used to. I know as I been getting lots of calls and emails asking “where are the fish” or “what happened to the...
