    Has anyone done any catfishing on the trinity river? The only place I have ever done any real catfishing was down in the Rio Grande Valley. I am trying to find some nice areas in the Houston area to go.

    Haze, You can put in on HYW 59 outside of Goodrich , TX AT a public boat ramp. Its only 40-50 miles from houston. Good fishing down stream. Our up stream by the dam.

    Hey man i fish every night right here where the trinity river comes in to Lake Livingston and i have been catching them like crazy the past two nights. They mainly are bitting off there primary source oo food, which is shad. Try the heads and that might help u. Try fishing underneath the Veteran Bridge in Riverside, it might be worth your while.

    Etrevino.....any size to the fish you are catching? I am new to the area and was planning on putting in at Hwy 59. How far upstream do I need to go. How deep is water you are fishing in. Thanks for any help.

    Dock @ I-10 run down river where trinity and old and lost river meet. We use to go there years ago and always killed them with shad, mainly 1-3# channel cats. San Jacinto river below dam when they release water after alot of rain is pretty good or sloughs off main river, try some jugs in these areas while your pole fishing. One more thing Clear Creek off 45 south, near League City. Dock @ Hwy 3 on League City side, there is a park with a boat ramp and a small pond you can catch bream with a cast net in. I set trot lines west of 45 south, thats up the creek this will work caught 38# op, 13 other cats, and big gar last time I ran trot lines (30 hooks). Clear Creek is tidal goes into Clear lake, you will catch blues more when water up and low water mostly channel and (ops with live bream). You can do better than my last outing water was real low. Hope this helps you out, good luck.
