The Trask has been great fishing with quite a few hatchery fish being caught in the mix and still getting bright Chinook around the hatchery. (cannot keep them but talk about a great fight) jigs seem to be the ticket on the Trask with darker colors in the dirtier water and mild pinks and oranges when the water gets cleaner.
Tipping your jig with shrimp seems to help produce in all water conditions. The Trask can be fished even when the Wilson is a little higher and not as “fishable” making the Trask a decent option if the rains continue.
