Steelhead are known as the fish of a thousand casts, but when you hook one, the fight is on. And there's no better way to success than to use an experienced guide like Jim.

Trinity River Adventures - Guided Fly Fishing

Enjoy 2 nights lodging and 2 days of guided fishing on the Trinity River with Jim Roberts and friends. Fishing will be on Sunday, December 4 and Monday, December 5.  There is the option to fish the lower Sac in the even the steelhead fishing on the Trinity is not productive.

We are going to stay at Red Hill Cabins Weaverville as we have in the past, (not in Redding as previously communicated).  Drive up day is Saturday Dec. 3.  No changes to meals that Jim Roberts guide/outfitter is providing, which is breakfast, lunch and dinner Sunday Dec. 4, and breakfast and lunch on Monday Dec. 5.  Dinner on our own, drive up day Saturday.  We are in boats with guides on the Trinity all day Dec. 4 & 5.  The river is getting a good run of steelhead this year and is expected to continue.  There have also been past hookups with coho salmon (closed to fishing) to be released quickly.  I have caught 2 of these tagged fish, (one likely near 10lb).  There has also been a rare large brown trout in the mix.

This trip includes all your housing, meal costs, and two full days of guided fishing in a boat. Normally a trip of this magnitude would be over $1,600 if you were to plan this individually so this a very good deal if you are interested in classic Steelhead fishing. There is the possibility of staying over an extra night, if you are interested. *The extra night is on your own.  You will need to make your own reservations.*  Contact the fishmeister, Gary Prince, for more information. Breakfast, lunch and dinner are provided on Sunday. Breakfast and lunch are provided on Monday.

TVFF Cancellation Policy:

To sign-up for a TVFF Event  that is currently open for registration and chargeable (as set by the Fishmeister), you must both register and pay online, or via check or cash, within two weeks of registering (sent to the TVFF Treasurer) whatever fee is described for that particular Event (trip) at the time of registration. There may be multiple payments required before the trip is actually taken (usually in the case of expensive trips), but it is necessary that you do make payment in the above timely fashion for the initial amount to secure your position on the trip.  However, please note that you are still responsible for the entire amount of the trip if you should need to cancel. 

Once you are registered, there are no refunds for chargeable Events and trips.  In the situation that a member is, for any reason unable to attend, they may resell their registration slot to another TVFF member (by first pulling from the waitlist if one exists).  New participants must come first from the waitlist in the order they signed up.  The member cancelling is fully and solely responsible for contacting potential members to replace them and notifying the appropriate Fishmeister.

If an event/trip is fully registered and closed to registration, you may still sign up on the Wait List to be notified if there are any cancellations.  In such a case of registering provisionally on the Wait List, you do not have to pay until such time that you clear the Wait List and are confirmed for participation.

Tri-Valley Fly Fishers

COVID-19 (Coronavirus) Protocol

TVFF Outings Policy as of September 20, 2020

As a club, the Tri-Valley Fly Fishers have developed and agreed to a set of required guidelines, protocols and rules in order to help direct our members on ways to stay safe on one-day outings, multi-day outings, or individual “Tag-Alongs”.

These protocols were developed by the TVFF Board of Directors as well as input from other local clubs which included a member virologist, various safety committees, and member experts. We feel that these protocols and guidelines are consistent with public health information and experts. These protocols are assured, observed, and enforced by outing leaders as well as members themselves. Extra masks, spray disinfectant and sanitizer are available from the outing leaders.

Please note that the Tri-Valley Fly Fishers accepts no liability for inadequate protection or the transmission of Covid-19 among members or guests. Therefore, each member should review the following protocols that the Club subscribes to and make an individual decision of whether to participate in an activity or not, based upon their individual circumstances and personal safety.

TVFF Outings protocols are as follows:

  • If you are sick with cold/flu symptoms then we ask you to please stay home
  • Everyone will be responsible for making, bringing, and consuming their own separate food and drinks
  • All attendees should wash and sanitize their hands frequently
