We fished the north shoreline of Trinitiy today with the wind going around 12 to 15. Water was very fresh and off color at the mouth of the river. Water was noticably better toward Dows reef and had some salt in it. If you need to stay in this area you might want to stay further west in Trinity. East bay would be even better. Hope this helps and good luck with your Dad.
Hey guys, just thought I'd add my .02, the surface of the water in North Trinity is fresh, really fresh. About 2' below that fresh river water is clean salty water. Fished it heavily over the last 2 weeks with positive results. Throw something with some color over 4-6' and you should be fine. Look for the birds, they're everywhere. GOOD LUCK and TIGHT LINES EVERYONE
