Upper Trinity River reopens for Chinook salmon fishing

The California Department of Fish and Wildlife (CDFW) announces that the Trinity River Hatchery has met its adult fall-run Chinook salmon take of 4,800 fish.

The Trinity River downstream of the Old Lewiston bridge to the mouth of Indian Creek opened to the take of chinook salmon over 22 inches on Nov. 17.

The daily bag limit in this section is three Chinook salmon, of which one may be an adult over 22 inches.

The daily bag limit for the rest of that section below the mouth of Indian Creek down to the Highway 299 west bridge at Cedar flat is three Chinook salmon under 22 inches.

The fall-run Chinook salmon quota on the Lower Trinity River is 681 adult Chinook salmon from the confluence with the Klamath River up to Cedar flat.

This sub-area quota has not been met yet, and anglers may retain one adult Chinook salmon as part of their three fish daily bag limit.

CDFW reminds anglers that a salmon report card is required when fishing for Chinook salmon in anadromous portions of the Klamath basin.

Steelhead fishing remains open in all areas, with a daily bag of two hatchery steelhead or trout and possession limit of four hatchery steelhead or trout.

Hatchery steelhead or trout are defined as fish showing a healed adipose fin clip (the adipose fin is absent).

Anglers are also required to possess a steelhead report card when fishing for steelhead.

Anglers may keep track of the status of open and closed sections of the Klamath and Trinity rivers by calling 1-800-564-6479.
