Your day with me will start most commonly before daylight. We'll meet at the most convenient place for everyone which most likely will be at the boat ramp where we'll launch, or at the local bait shop. No matter what time we start your day with me will be from the time we start until we limit out or you say it's time to go home! Unlike most guides, My boat has a windshield a top and a heater for your comfort. The weather will predict whether or not I have the top up. I will supply everything you will need for fishing; boat, rods & reels, all bait and tackle an ice chest for cold drinks. You will need a valid California fishing license,a steelhead report card if we are fishing for steelhead, Sturgeon report card if we're fishing for sturgeon as well as Striper, a two rod stamp is optional. Dress for cold weather; remember it's always colder on the water than it is at home. It's best to dress in layers because as cold as it is in the morning it gets pretty warm in the afternoon. The sun's reflection off the water is pretty strong so remember the sunscreen as well as insect repellent. I do carry some on board but it's best to bring your own. Pack a lunch, sandwiches, cold chicken etc. Preferably a lunch you can eat with one hand because you'll be catching fish with the other. Bring some cold drinks; remember I'll have an ice chest on board. PRICES - Shad fishing $150.00 per person - One person trips - $240.00
I have lived in the area I guide in my whole life. I'm in my fifties now and have hunted and fished Nor Cal all of my life, giving me more chapters in my playbook than others have pages in theirs! Setting fishing aside for a moment, I have taken Pope Young record class game with my bow in Nor Cal. Such as Bear, sheep and the one I'm the most proud of a 174 68, 7x7 Buck. All of my fish and game have been taken in areas open to the general public. Back to fishing I have fished the Sacramento, Feather and Yuba Rivers for over three decades. Giving me the fish catching experience that there's no substitute for. Although river fishing is my first love, I do enjoy some lake fishing. I do guide on some lakes to fill in the holes between seasons on the river. My friends and relatives had told me for years before I got my guides license, I should. Being amazed at the enjoyment I get from watching someone else catching fish, as well as helping him or her to become a better fisherman. Not satisfied just being on the cutting edge, but creating tomorrow's next best thing. Your day with me will be from the time we start until we limit out the boat or you say it's time to go home. So come spend the day with me and let's create some hand shaking, high fiving, life long friendships and memories...
