Fishing Report, Nov. 20

Got back from the Trinity and promptly got knocked out for a week by the flu. This week, I’m healthy again and back out fishing. The striper action on the Delta has been superb, mostly on spoons, swimbaits and some topwater. 


Also, I have access to some nice steelhead fishing that few other people can reach. We’ve been throwing egg patterns on fly gear for some nice fall-run Valley steelhead. There are lots of salmon spawning so the metalheads are feasting!

Contact me at 916-952-1554 or for info on stripers or steelhead trips. 

Fishing Report, Oct. 24

We are transitioning into steelhead as the salmon start to drop off…but we still had 3 salmon yesterday and 9 two days prior to that. Adult steelies are the main game now, however, and we have been booking 6-10 per day. 
I’ll be here on the Klamath & Trinity through the first week of Nov and then will be back to chasing chrome kings on the Sacramento and stripers on the Delta. 



Fishing Report, Oct. 13

The Klamath and Trinity rivers have been pumping out some nice fresh king salmon and plenty of adult steelhead lately. We have a little weather coming in too, which should bring us more fish!

I have a couple last second cancellations onOct 18 & 23 if you’d like to come up. Send me an email at 








Salmon & Stripers!

image image image imageFrom Sept 21 through Sept 29, I will be running striper-salmon combination trips on the Sacramento Delta. The striper action has been really good and we’ve located a good pocket where there are lots of kings pausing before heading up the river. It’s a fun and unique opportunity to fish for both species in the same day!

After that, I will be in the drift boat on the Trinity and Klamath rivers and only have 4 days left available until November. If you’d like to come up to the beautiful and productive North Country, I have Oct. 7, 13 and 21-22.


10625324953_aa3e19809b_kIt’s weird not to be salmon fishing in August! I have been holding off on taking salmon trips because I just don’t feel like I can take people out when the fishing is this poor. Going out when maybe 1-2 dark fish is a good day just isn’t my thing.

I plan on starting up the last week of September on the Sacramento and then and switching to the Klamath/Trinity canyons in the drift boat Oct. 1. Then, after October, I will switch back to the jet boat — the  Sacramento River in the Sac Metro area will be fishing in early November.

Thanks for your patience and those of you still not on the schedule need to get in touch ASAP so you don’t lose your spots. See you soon!10237625985_c6704145bc_k

Fishing Report July 19, 2015

We had another nice week of mackinaw fishing on Tahoe, with some really nice fish showing yesterday. All were caught on light jigging gear. 

If you’d like to come up for a fun trip, the next availability I have is the first week of August. Get in touch via email at or 916-952-1554
