  • Where to Fish?
    With the COVID-19restrictions still in place where does one go to fish? That is the question? The water releases are on their way down but will still have some increases from rain and bump-ups for the Trinity releases. Right now, it is a hard answer for me as I have not heard from any of …

  • Fall Chinook Salmon are the Sustainable
    With the Trinity River Hatchery returns and the egg collection there is a question of whether Fall Run Chinook salmon, Coho salmon and steelhead will be sustainable on the Trinity River. If this happens how is the National Marine Fishery Service (NMFS) going to plan for the recovery of the Klamath River Basin Fishery? Coho …
