CALIFORNIA DREAMING

Fishing Northern California is amazing. We offer single and multiple day trips to a dozen rivers and locations. Guided Drift Boat Trips include the McCloud River, Fall River, Lower Sacramento River, Trinity River and Klamath River. Our Walk & Wade Guided Trips include the McCloud River, Hat Creek, Upper Sacramento, Pit River, Fall River, Yuba River, Feather River and Lake Shasta Bass.

We customize each of our Northern California fly fishing destinations. You can stay in Redding and fish a different river every day. You can also consider a Base Camp at Burney Falls, McArthur State Park. Burney Falls is within short striking distance of Fall River, Hat Creek, the Pit River, Baum Lake, Lake Britton and Burney Creek. Burney Falls is also a short drive from Lassen National Park and McArthur-Burney Falls Memorial Park. Our guides and service are the best Northern California has to offer. They have mastered the best freshwater fisheries in the North State.

There are direct lights from LAX and Burbank to Redding making it easy to get to this most favored destination. in the shadows of Mt. Shasta and Mt. Lassen.

Fishing Program

Here are some suggestions:

Spring: Lower Sacramento River is an excellent option March through mid June. Our spring bugs start hatching in early March and our local trout fishing on the "Lower Sac" can get very good. This is primarily nymph fishing but the chance to throw the dry during our PMD and Caddis hatches is good for small windows of the day.  The lower Sacramento River has good fishing year round. The Rainbow Trout are aggressive, large and plentiful. The river is similar to many you will find in Montana; broad, deep, cold water, scenic with limited public access.

We work with a few rental properties on the river that can accommodate groups from 4-12 anglers.

 Summer: Fall River can be one of our favorite fisheries in the summer months (June - September). This large Spring creek delivers very good fishing during the summer months and this venue has quickly become one the favorites for a lot of our return guests. In addition to the Fall River, there are a few small stream venues that are close as well. Hat Creek, Burney Creek and the Pit River are all very good wade fishing options to throw in the mix over the course of a multi day fishing trip. 

 *We have very similar packages to the Lower Sac pkg listed above in the Fall River area. We will get you the finished PDFs when they are done being revamped. 

  Fall/Winter Fishing: The Klamath and Trinity are both top destinations when it comes to steelhead fishing on the west coast. We are fishing both of these rivers frequently from September through February and into March in the pursuit of steelhead with our guests. The average size is from 4 to 8 pounds.
