Happy Veterans Day. I wish all my fellow Vietnam Veterans well and may you have a good day. There have been lots of emails and phone calls about the bad fishing on the Trinity and Klamath Rivers.

With the cold winter like weather we...

Trinity River - Willow Creek Weir

As I am writing this report it is raining! In the last several days it has been overcast, showers and cloudy in Willow Creek. This type of weather pattern usually brings in fish, both at the mouth of the Klamath and into the Trinity. This is great news for the fishermen that have been waiting for some fresh salmon and more...

Trinity River - Willow Creek Weir

The Trinity River valley has fallen into the old weather patterns of years ago. We are experiencing weather patterns like in the 1950s and 1960s, rain in September now if that continues into October like back then we should see a lot more fish. (Both salmon and steelhead) I remember when everybody used to have to be out of the...
