Smith and Trinity River steelhead fishing 12-26-2014 Dave Jacobs December 26, 2014 Fishing Report Smith and Trinity River steelhead fishing 12-26-2014. Current fishing conditions on the Smith and Trinity River are very good for this weekend and upcoming week. Many coastal steelhead rivers and creeks are forecasted to come down into fishable levels throughout this upcoming with what looks like a week of dry, sunny weather. The Smith River is currently 10.8 feet or 7,600 cfs, dropping and clearing. This is traditionally the time of year that many of our coastal rivers like the Smith see the leading edge of the seasons steelhead runs. Especially after big rains like the Smith just had, conditions are great right now for both bank and boat fishing. The Trinity River is too coming into shape with steelhead scattered throughout the upper section of river from Lewiston down through Junction City. Currently the Trinity is at its Winter releases at Lewiston of 300 cfs. Flows at Junction City are 790 cfs and dropping. Fishing conditions are very good for this weekend and upcoming week for both bank and boat fishing opportunities for steelhead 3 to 6 pounds and larger steelhead 8 plus pounds.
