LTFF Level 3 Fish-out - Trinity River for Steelhead, 11/4 & 5

Have you ever caught a steelhead? This fish-out is your chance! 

Join us for guided fishing with the experts at Confluence Outfitters The Learn to Fly Fish (LTFF) Trinity River Fish-out is offered initially to students enrolled in their 3rd year of the LTFF Program. When registration opens, each student can only sign up for one day of fishing (Group 1 on Sat., 11/4, or Group 2 on Sun., 11/5); however, you may be able to join us for both days if the fish-out doesn't fill up right away. We will send an announcement to the group if and when we need to open this event further.

Registration Fee: $410 each day, which includes the guide fee and the shuttle service cost but DOES NOT INCLUDE guide gratuity, lodging, meals (other than lunch), or travel costs. The suggested guide gratuity is $60-80 for each person.

Trinity River Lodging Recommendations: Due to the travel distance to this river, everyone should find their lodging in the Weaverville / Douglas City area for at least the night before and, ideally, for the night after fishing. Redding is another possibility for accommodation, but it is about an hour away. Campgrounds may be closed this time of year, so check ahead if that is your plan. Please view the Weaverville/Lewiston Lodging page on Confluence Outfitters' website for lodging recommendations.

Once the trip is filled, the fishout leader will gauge interest in a group AirBnb.

We will plan a casual no-host dinner for Saturday evening. We will provide details in the pre-fishout Zoom meeting.

Trinity River Fishing License Requirements: You must have a regular freshwater fishing license (a daily license or a season license) AND a Steelhead Catch Report Card.

Steelhead Card: You must have the original Steelhead Card on your person while fishing. Many Steelhead anglers purchase the Steelhead Card with their annual fishing license at the beginning of each year (if that's you, nice work!); but, if you do not already have a Steelhead Card in your possession, please do not order it online, as it might not be delivered in time for the trip! You will need to pick up your Steelhead card at a local retail shop such as Big 5 Sporting Goods.

Fishing Gear: Our guides will provide single-hand fly rods rigged for indicator nymph fishing. If you prefer to bring your own rod, plan on a 7 wt or 8 wt at least 9'. The guides will also provide lunch. This trip is NOT a two-handed fly rod trip, as this gear is not required to fish this river effectively.

Gear list (other than fishing gear):  Check the weather before leaving home and pack accordingly, including rain gear (always) and proper layering to adjust for temp changes during the day. Some of the recommended gear includes:

  • Waders and boots
  • Wading belts (2 preferably)
  • Rain jacket
  • Hat
  • Gloves (both warm & sun)
  • A fleece layer (top & bottom)
  • A spare set of clothes in a dry bag or pack
  • Water-protected phone or camera
  • Polarized sunglasses
  • Headlamp
  • Sunscreen or buff
  • (Optional) Area map or Delorme California atlas

I look forward to this trip and hope you can join us.

Fish-out leader: Mike Nelson
