Coming in as the third largest reservoir in California, Trinity Lake is cupped in pines, cedar and oak trees and offers any houseboater a beautiful retreat for water skiing, fishing, hunting, or simply just loafing about and relaxing. Speaking of fishing, populations of largemouth bass to rainbow trout and kokanee swim through this clear waters, and from March 20th, 1976 – 2008, the state record smallmouth bass was caught by Tom Brady near the dam, weighing in at just over 9 pounds. Trinity Lake also offers waterfalls, creeks, and quiet coves along its 145 miles of stunning shoreline. Trinity Alps Peaks and Mt. Shasta are both visible in stark panoramic relief in the distance.
Trinity Alps Marina is lucky to be stationed in such a lovely area. Relatively new, this marina opened in 2003 and is proudly family-owned and operated. With water moorage and dry dock storage facilities, as well as their own array of rental houseboats, this lovely marina offers a lot to a houseboating visitor of Trinity Lake, especially with the generosity of their 2015 rental discounts. All of their rentals include the “necessities” that never fail to fulfill the comforts you’d find at home, while the more luxurious models offer such pleasantries as a wet bar, dishwasher, and railed upper deck. Prices range from around $2000 to $4300 for weeklong vacations during the hottest houseboating season. For 2015, you can book now and save $200 from a weeklong spring rental or $400 off a weeklong summer rental, as well as 10% off a fish, pontoon, ski, or wakeboard rental.
If you’ve cast your eye on Trinity Lake, don’t hesitate to check out the fleet at this beautiful marina and keep an eye on the discount page—you might want to plan a special trip in the upcoming months to the unique and diverse beauties found at Trinity Lake, Calif.
