Rondy: Trinity River Steelhead Drift #1
Dates: November 13, 2019
Leader: Joe Waterman mailto:firstname.lastname@example.org
Number of anglers (including leader): 8
Description: There are three (3) one-day Steelhead guided float trip Rondies for the Trinity River this year. We have moved the dates back from prior years for better water. This one will be on Friday, November 13, 2020.
The Trinity is a gorgeous river in the Fall! And has a dependable run of wild and hatchery Steelhead. There are several techniques used for fishing for Steelhead in the fall: 1) Indicator nymph fishing using a 6-8 wt. single hand fly rod with floating line and Fluorocarbon tippet (from 1X-4X); 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. We will do our best to match boat partners and guides to their preferred technique.
The guides we use are great. They are:
(3 boats) Confluence Outfitters http://www.confluenceoutfitters.com/
(1 boat) Aaron Gabriel http://www.thenortherncaliforniaguide.com/
Suggested Gear: 6-8 wt single handed fly rods for nymphing and swinging; 5-7 wt Spey rods for swinging. Note that the weather can be very cold, bring multi-layers and good rain gear.
Cost: The fee for this Rondy is $300
Other expenses will be guide gratuities, transportation, lodging. We also do an optional no-host dinner on Saturday night at the restaurant in Indian Creek Lodge for anyone who would like to attend.
