Trinity River Shop Trip



A group of 8 of us headed up to Weaverville, Ca to try and catch some elusive West Coast Steelhead.  The reports that had been coming out had been slower fishing with fewer fish in the system.  Although the fishing was slower than it had been in previous years we were still hoping that we could fool a few.

The fishing was difficult, the takes were very subtle and you had to be on them immediately.  You could do everything right and still it was a challenge.  We managed to find a few more fish milling around than the week before and by the end of the trip our group landed 18 fish.  I wish I could say everyone in the group landed one, although I believe everyone hooked one.  That is how it goes when chasing Steel.




It was a great trip and we had such a good time.  We could not have asked for a better crew, lots of laughing and poking fun at each other.  Weaverville is a great little town and we enjoyed some good meals as well as the Cardinals Monday night win at the Sawmill Bar & Grill in the heart of 49er country.  I cannot wait for next year and hoping we find some more fish in the system.  I am also glad Steve and I were able to redeem the shop’s good name after Rohmer’s skunking the week before…
