The Fish Sniffer - Bass Fishing Exploded Before Latest Storms
Bass Fishing Exploded Before Latest Storms

Species: Bass Trout
Location: Trinity Lake,

Bass fishing enthusiasts experienced some hot action on big largemouths and smallmouths at Trinity Lake before latest storms cooled the weather down.

“My son, Tim Jr., and his buddy Mike Thompson had a great day of fishing on Trinity,” said Tim Brady of Trinity Outdoors. “Their top five fish weighed 37.7 pounds – that’s like a limit from Clear Lake.”

Most of the fish they landed were largemouth, but they released a huge smallmouth going 7.7 pounds. The anglers fooled the bass with rip baits and swimbaits in 15 to 25 feet of water on the lake’s north end dredger piles.

Trout fishing reports on Lewiston Lake and the mouths of the tributaries on Trinity Lake are nonexistent. Anglers should fish PowerBait, Power Eggs, Pautzke salmon eggs, nightcrawlers, spinners and spoons if they want to hook into some rainbows at either reservoir.

“The Trinity River steelhead run has wound down for the season,” he noted. “Very few anglers are fishing the river now.”

Trinity Lake is holding 1,306,823 acre-feet of water, 53 percent of capacity and 68 percent of average.
