Recreational Opportunities Trinity County is rich in physical points of interest. Reminders of the 49'er days - pioneer homes, remnants of gold towns, hotels, stage stops, ruins of gold processing plants, flumes, ditches, tunnels, and hydraulic washes - are scattered in profusion throughout the country. The points of interest include Trinity Dam and Lake, Lewiston Fish Hatchery (the world's most automated salmon and steelhead hatchery), Lewiston Lake (where excellent drift fishing is found in upper channels of lunker rainbows and brown trout), J.J. Jackson Memorial Museum, the Joss House (Chinese worship temple), LaGrange Mine (an entire mountain washed away by hydraulic giants), washmills, the Natural Bridge, and the Scott Museum in Trinity Center where there is a large collection of gold mining relics and antiques. Trinity Lake Trinity Lake is the third largest lake in California. With 16,000 surface acres and 145 miles of shoreline it is uncrowded even during summer peak months. The lake's irregular shoreline creates three separate arms with many secluded tree-lined coves that are perfect for anglers and houseboaters. Water skiers find the "glassy" water excellent. Anglers will enjoy fishing Trinity Lake for trophy-size large-mouth bass, rainbow and German Brown trout, Kokanee salmon and catfish. It also holds the California State record for smallmouth bass.
