Trinity Lake is the perfect place to spend an afternoon boating, swimming, waterskiing, tubing and fishing. Since fishing takes a little skill and knowhow if you want to be successful, we often get questions from fishermen asking the best place to try their luck. We’re here to help! Keep reading to learn everything there is to know about Trinity Lake fishing.

Types of fish

In mid-spring, when the water starts to clear up, the lake will come alive with native rainbow trout, brown trout, kokanee salmon, smallmouth and largemouth bass and catfish. Several state-record weight fish have been caught in Trinity Lake, including a bullhead catfish, Chinook salmon and a smallmouth bass.

Best places to fish

Trinity Lake offers great fishing both from the shore and from the water. If you’re interested in staying on dry land, all the arms of the lake offer great spots for trout and bass. Areas near the mouths of the creeks or shallow sections of the lake will almost certainly pay off. If you’re on a boat, our fishermen often have luck trolling on the main Trinity Arm. Many trophy-sized smallmouth bass have also been caught on the upper end of the lake.

Baits to use

The type of bait you choose really depends on the fish you’re trying to catch, but for general success, many fishermen on Trinity Lake like to use nightcrawlers, crickets or even basic plastic worms. If you’re interested in fly fishing, we recommend minnow shaped flies, Zack Attack Damsels or Chromies.
