Steelhead Fishing Gets Going WEAVERVILLE - Fishing pressure has been very light on the Trinity River, due to the closure of fall Chinook fishing this year on the Trinity River from Sept. 1 through Dec. 31, due to historically low stock projections of fall Chinook in the Klamath Basin. However fishing for steeLhead remains open on the river, with a daily bag limit of two hatchery steelhead and a possession limit of four hatchery steelhead. The few people going out for steelhead report good action. “A 91-year-old guy fishing with guide Bruce McGregor caught and released 3 adult steelhead and two half pounders on McGregor’s latest trip,” said Tim Brady of Trinity Outdoors. “They landed 3 adults to 4 pounds and two half pounders above Junction City. One fish hit roe and the others fell for hair’s ear and pheasant tail nymph fly patterns.” Black bass fishing at Trinity Lake is still holding solid, but there aren’t many people venturing out. People are hooking smallmouth and largemouth bass on the north end while employing jigs, Gitzits, Senkos and other lures, noted Brady. The kokanee salmon fishing is over for Striper Limits The Rule, Sturgeon Action Solid Too! BRANNAN ISLAND - The excitement level couldn’t be much higher in the West Delta, while few anglers are hooking salmon, the striper fishing is excellent and the sturgeon fishing is coming on strong! Captain David Hammond of Delta Pro Fishing has been putting his clients on limits of quality stripers every day while trolling. Hammond has been relying on Yo- Zuri deep running Crystal Minnows for most of his fish. “I’ve had a long streak of limits on my striper trips this fall,” related Hammond. “The bass fishing is great and I don’t think it’s going to slow down anytime soon. I’m going to start mixing in some sturgeon trips over the next several weeks just to keep things fresh. If you want a fast limit of bass give me a call. If you want to exercise your patience for a shot at a monster fish, let’s go sit on some sturgeon.” Trollers aren’t the only guys getting in on the hot striper fishing. Pluggers are landing and releasing big numbers of bass that range up to and beyond 25 pounds. Monster topwater plugs work early and late. Fish Traps and Rat-L-Traps work throughout the day.
