    Default accessing the trinity

    The Trinity is rip roaring below Dallas right now. I live about a mile from the East Fork and it's been running bank to bank for the past week or so. The Trinity got out of it's banks above Livingston. Now.. to answer your question. I would stay away from the Trinity, especially if you are a boater, for a while. At least until it becomes a bit more "normal" in elevation.
    There is a ramp at the Trinity and Hwy 287 below Richland Chambers Lake but negoting the river now would be a challenge for a very expert boat handler.. Best to wait till it's more stable or.... maybe fish off the bank around the ramp.. I am betting, even with 2 ounces of weight, it would be tough to keep a bait in positon with the swift current... good fishing!

    How about when the water goes down? I'm thinking about tryin' it out for some gar.

    When I try to google anything about accessing the river I just get a bunch of info on the Dallas parks programs.

    Access points to the Trinity. For gar fishing, the best seems to be down around the town of Trinity. Believe that's where Capt Kirk, the best gar guide in the state guides his foreign clients for gar. In-Fisherman had a report, both in its magazine and TV show about Doug Stange fishing with Kirk for gar. As I remember, several over 200 lbs were hung. The largest was caught by Stange and weighed over 230.

    Default Trinity

    Well I'm about 120miles south of Fort Worth and the Trinity is not looking too bad. Last week the fishing was pretty good on NIGHT CRAWLERS. Tried em earlier this evening on shad and perch with no luck, but I plan on going back at em at dawn!
