Sac steelhead/trout bite is really good!

We've been bouncing between the Trinity River and the Sacramento River the past few weeks and we're seeing some good fishing on both rivers.  The Sac is a big numbers trip, but the Trinity steelhead are generally bigger.  We do see some slow days on the Trinity, but the Sacramento River is pretty much a sure thing where catching fish is concerned.  We have just a few weeks of Trinity River trips ahead, but the Sac will see some of its best fishing of the year in March.  The upper 5 miles of the Sacramento River from the SR 44 bridge to Keswick dam closes to fishing on the 1st of April.  We lose a lot of good water to fish in April, but we still have plenty of great days on the Sac below the 44 bridge.  We have both fly and spin trips available for our guests, so pick your preferred technique and give Jaynie a call to get your trip on the books!  (530) 510-2925.  Thank yoy!
