There are two (2) one-day Steelhead guided "float trip" rondies planned for the Trinity River. This one will be on Saturday, November 5, 2016. The second rondy will be on Sunday November 6 (sign up for it on a separate event page).
The plan is to have participants for both days attend a no-host dinner Saturday night at the new restaurant in Indian Creek Lodge, since many of the group are likely to try to stay at this lodge (on CA-299 east of Douglas City, CA) and it is really too far to drive up there on the morning of the rondy to be able to arrive timely or to drive home that night after a long day on the water. We also caution you to make your own lodging reservations early.
We held a similar (2) float trips during 2015. It was a total success -- good guides, lots of fish caught, and we had a great get-together at dinner.
There are several options for fishing for Steelhead in the fall: 1) Indicator nymph fishing using a 5-7 wt. single hand fly rod with floating line and Fluorocarbon tippet (from 1X-4X) below an indicator of your choice and split-shot as needed; 2) Swinging steelhead flies with a 6-8 wt single hand rod with a floating or intermediate head or sink tip and short 9-12# mono tippet; and 3) Swinging steelhead flies with a 5-7 wt Spey rod with a floating or intermediate fly line or sink tip, and again using a short 9-12# mono tippet.
Basic fly fishing skills are required. Not for the "Learn to Fly Fish Program" participants or beginners. There will be a Steelhead Clinic by George Revel at the clubhouse (date tbd). Gear and trip logistics will be covered in detail there.
The weather can be very cold. Bring multi-layers and good rain gear.
There is a $225 fee for this one day Rondy, which covers the guide cost (& lunch), but not the guide's gratuity. To sign up for the Saturday, November 5th rondy, simply register & pay on this webpage. (To sign up for the Sunday, November 6th rondy, click on that event on the club events calendar.)
