Shop Updates

Dear Customers, Sweeney's Sports will be closed on Sundays, starting this Sunday, February 26th.

We made a team decision to give all of us here more time to spend with our families and enjoy the outdoors.

We also wanted to have more time for fishing, hunting, and shooting sports. The more we practice, the more hands-on knowledge we'll have to serve you better.

Starting in March, Sweeney's Sports will open at 7 am on Saturdays to help you get on the water earlier with the right bait and tackle.

The new store hours are as follows:

Monday 9am-6pm

Tuesday 9am-6pm

Wednesday 9am-6pm

Thursday 9am-6pm

Friday 9am-6pm

Saturday 7am-6pm - Starting in March (9-6 this Saturday).


The 2023 Spring and Summer Simms apparel collection has started to arrive. If you like to fish and chill in style, stop by the shop to check out the latest designs.

We have a number of rods and reels on sale this month. Stop by to check out our sale selection before they are all gone.

In stock now:

Springfield Armory 1911 Loaded Marine Corps Operator® .45 ACP - $1349

Springfield Armory offers a 1911 Loaded Marine Corps Operator® .45 ACP pistol that is approved by the California DOJ. West Coast shooters can take advantage of features such as the match-grade forged steel slide and frame and the unparalleled shooting comfort afforded by Pachmayr wraparound grips and an extended lightweight trigger. The extended ambidextrous thumb safety and generous beavertail optimize the gun’s tactical capabilities. Low-profile no-snag tritium sights keep the gun shooting straight.

SIG SAUER P238 Nitron - $799

Reacting to many requests from the marketplace for a subcompact SIG SAUER pistol, engineers designed the P238 Nitron as a smart-looking, small handgun built with the same accuracy and reliability as large-frame SIG SAUER pistols. With an overall length of just 5.5 inches, a height of 3.96 inches, and weighing just under a pound, the P238 Nitron is the ultimate firepower in an all-metal frame concealed pistol. Additionally, the

contrast sights or SIGLITE Night Sights are removable and adjustable for windage. The sear and trigger return springs are redesigned to prevent spring over-ride of the ejector during assembly

Trinity River Fishing Report

The Trinity continues to fish great. The weather is perfect up north right now. There is a good amount of fish in the system. Some moving up and some are on their way back down.

We are looking at some rain and snow later this week. Which typically means better fishing!! If you’re planning to head up before the weather I recommend fishing the deep runs after riffles. When the sun is out those fish tend to hide out in deeper water.

Typical steelhead flies have been working well. Floating the river in a drift boat is the best option to cover the most water in a day. If you’re looking to float the Trinity we have a little over a month of steelhead season left. Contact me to book the trip.

Congratulations to Brent Hebb and Paco on a Successful Hunt!

Last Sunday, Brent and his friend Paco hunted Wooden Valley before sunrise.

As Brent crested a steep rise he noticed a movement in his peripheral vision and then saw the Big Sow.

The sow was at the top of his bow range, but Paco carried a riffle. As Paco took a shot the sow charged straight at them.

Luckily, Brent still had his bow at the ready, and brought down the charging sow with an arrow only 5 yards from his position!
