    So I'm gonna drive down to CA for spring break and see a couple buddies and do a ton of fishing (then if time permits hit a night or two at the hohdown!)

    Hopefully I'll be fishing for steel on the Trinity, Smith, Rouge and anywhere else I might run into some spring run chrome. But, I'll be chasing anything with fins and am hoping to maybe hit the upper sac for some trout action (I hear there's a good caddis hatch) At any rate, what the hell should I tie?

    Everything you will need will be temperature dependent. If the weather warms then the upper Sac might have some caddis hatches but I wouldn't hold my breath. I think copper johns and similar nymphs will be the best bet. For the trinity, some egg patterns, small nymphs and some buggy black stonefly nymphs might do the job. I generally don't fish there during that time. The Rogue is a waste of time...don't go...besides, I'll be there. ;-).
