Shasta Lake trout are on the menu!

Shasta Lake

Wow, we're seeing some high quality trout this week and all signs point to some continued good fishing on Shasta Lake.  The most notable fact is the condition of these trout.  Every trout we've been catching since breaking away from the river fishing has been in pristine condition.  Its not always the case that we see these trout in such form,...

Sacramento River - Lower

The Sacramento River is seeing some of the lowest flows south of Redding in several years.  The flows from keswick Dam into the lower Sac are once again dropping this week to 3,800 cfs.  The low flows have stunted the up river migration of the late fall salmon in recent weeks, but they are starting to show in better numbers...

Trinity River

The Trinity River is still very low and the two days of rain we got this week only bumped flows slightly.  There are steelhead in the Trinity, but the bites are tough with the current low and clear conditions.  With no rain in sight, its likely going to be without change until we get some rain sometime in December.  Captain Justin Thompson...

Steelhead numbers improve!

Trinity River

The Trinity River saw a slight bump in flows today with the rain we saw late this morning.  It was enough to get things going for a bite today, but we have a long spell of dry weather looking ahead and that won't help things much.  Justin has a handful of November trips on the Trinity so I'll keep everyone posted...
