Premier California Fishing Guide

I grew up in the woods of Wolfeboro, New Hampshire fishing Lake Winnipesaukee and the small surrounding ponds and streams for bass, trout, salmon and brook trout. I moved to California in 1984 and by 1986 was running whitewater rafting trips up and down the west slope of the Sierras. I was able to fish many sections of rivers that most anglers don’t get a chance to see. This experience turned me onto the art of fly fishing and in 1999 it quickly became my passion. Trading in the adrenaline rush of whitewater for the rush of a tug from a trout I have spent the last decade figuring out the trout feeding patterns on the fluctuating waters of the American rivers. I now offer unique trips that combine some whitewater and streamer fishing on the Middle and South Forks of the American River.
