Body of Water: Trinity River Date: Monday, July 27, 2009 # of Fish Caught: 16 Species: Rainbow Trout Size: Up to 13" Effective Flies: #12 Prince Nymph, #16 BH Green Rock Worm, #16 Red Copper John Summary: Fished at Bucktail Access in the late morning. The Copper Johns worked best in this area. Then we moved up into the "fly fishing only" section in Lewiston. We fished above the old concrete diversion dam and had pretty good success using the green rock worm.
It was very hot; sunny. Water was clear and cold. Again we saw some very large salmon swirling. Used the hinged indicator technique.
The fish were not big but they were a lot of fun. At about 2:30pm my dad and I agreed it was just too darn hot.
