Northern California steelhead fishing guides Dave Jacobs February 4, 2017 Recent Catches Northern California steelhead fishing guides. This Northern California fishing report is courtesy of Northern California steelhead fishing guides Dave Jacobs. Trinity River steelhead fishing report. The great steelhead fishing on the Trinity River near Lewiston, California has continued. With another water rise from todays newest rounds of rain, the Trinity River is rising but there are plenty of steelhead scattered throughout the river. Best sections include many different drifts with put in and take out points from Lewiston downriver to Pigeon Point. Steelhead anglers are scoring big on steelhead both with conventional spin gear and on the fly. Best conventional bets are back trolled Brad’s wigglers and Maglip plugs in the chrome, gold or copper patterns. Another conventional go to technique has been a diver/egg presentation with natural cured roe/puffball being the main offering for success. Fly anglers have been finding their success indicator fishing with golden stones and “rubber leg” patterns. These recent rains are certain to attract more steelhead upriver this month on the Trinity River. Pictured is another large Trinity River steelhead brought in recently with guide Todd LeBoeuf below Douglas City, California. Todd has been very successful bringing in three to five steelhead a day 4 to 10 pounds before these recent rains.
