Class I-II Trinity River, CA

Trinity Wild and Scenic River (Trinity National Forest Boundary, near Lewiston Dam to Trinity National Forest Boundary near confluence of North Fork Trinity River and Pigeon Point)

The Trinity River emerges clear and cold from Lewiston Lake and flows through a deep mountain valley cloaked with conifers. The river is very popular among salmon and steelhead anglers who are often seen on crisp fall and winter mornings fly fishing from drift boats. The river has many developed public access points along the corridor, so boating only a shorter section is popular. Boaters plying the class I and II rapids should look for brush hazards and fallen trees. (BLM)
