I'm doing a 5 day trip on the wilderness section the week after thanksgiving. Think there will be any steel around? Worth it to bring the 8 weight SH and 7 weight Spey?
They drift them out front, downstream of the boat. Lazy man's fishing. Just hold the rod, maybe give it little twitch now & then, as the guide rows you down through the slot. Depending on the water, sink tips or Teeny lines.Double hook patterns were (maybe still are) the preferred technique drifted behind the boat as you float.
The Winter fish have finally arrived; not big numbers yet but they are all the way up to Lewiston. Took a bright 10lb. +/-wild buck yesterday that just hammered a golden stone pattern. Had two other tugs that were tentative, no love. Haven't heard anything from the K.There should be steelhead In the Trinity!
