About This Fishing Charter

The Hookset:

I grew up in Northern California and fish and game have been an important part of my life ever since I can remember. My formative years were spent chasing bluegill and smallmouth bass in granite quarry ponds and small creeks within bicycle range of our home near Folsom Lake. My summers were spent camping and lining crawdads out of Lake Tahoe and stalking brookies and wild rainbow trout in the surrounding mountain streams.

To say fishing kept me out of trouble when I was a kid would be a fair assessment, although it did lead to a mild state of arrested development and profound lifelong habit of pursuing fish species.

The Big Adventure:

At the age of 26, after the dream of becoming a professional cyclist didn’t work out I packed up my fly rods and skis and followed a girl to the ski town of Mammoth Lakes along the beautiful Eastside of the Sierra. This region is a high mountain paradise with endless fishing, hunting, skiing, camping and exploring adventures! Possibly the best adventure of all – was with the girl.

It’s Getting Real:

In 2001 I started guiding for a small local shop on Main St in Mammoth Lakes and quickly realized I had found my calling.

The following spring I attended the Guide School at Clearwater House on Hat Creek and was invited to join the best guide service in Mammoth at the old Trout Fly shop.

After 7+ seasons with the shop, I had developed a solid base of regular clients and created my own guide service

business, Reel Mammoth Adventures. We spent 14 great years in Mammoth Lakes and with a lot of hard work, long hours on the water, and dedication my independent guide service business continues to grow every year.
