The wild and scenic Trinity River is the longest tributary of the Klamath River, and spans 168 miles from its source in the Scott Mountains to its mouth at the Klamath in Weitchpec. You can imagine that with this many river miles, there’s great fishing to be had along its banks. Fly-fishermen can try their hand at angling for pink and perfect Coho and Chinook salmon, monster steelhead, and even the elusive anadromous brown trout that spend most of their life in the Pacific Ocean but come back to the Trinity to spawn. This is not your average fishing, either, as it’s not unusual to hook several larger fish in one day, many of them weighing 8 lbs or more! The fishing season lasts year-round, but make sure you check with the Trinity Chamber of Commerce or one of the many local fishing guides for river conditions and permit requirements.
