Humboldt’s Fishing Report 11/16/2015
Smith – After this weekends rain the Smith river has opened up. Fishing has been stellar after heavy rains but the hot bite has only lasted for a couple days past the storms. The rivers are rising and falling rapidly and it is important for anglers to keep track of the water levels for the best fishing conditions.
Trinity – If you are looking to hook into some Steelhead, the Trinity river system is your best bet. The fishing has been steady with a mid grade of fish reported. Side drifting roe and pulling plugs has been the preferred method for catching Steelhead this past week. The lower Trinity has seen a large push of fish that should make its way up the river soon.
