Trinity River Steelhead: "Like a Barrel in a Jaws Movie"

November 5, 2004 By: Marshall Cutchin

If steelhead fishing were this easy everywhere, it would ruin the carefully preserved image of steelheaders as maniacs. Tom Stienstra describes the great fishing happening now on northern California’s Trinity river. “The Trinity River canyon has turned into the steelhead capital of the Western U.S. in the past six weeks. Six inches of rain in late September followed by clear, cold weather this week seems to have put a steelhead behind every boulder in the upper river.” On SFGate.com.
