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

Lake Tahoe Time! The drought has lowered the level of the lake, but, unlike other areas, it hasn’t hurt the fishing. In fact, the mackinaw action has been very good!

I’m running light tackle jig trips starting in July and still have some dates available in July and August. Come on up…it’s a great place to beat the heat!

Catching macks on light jigging rods is really fun…and because they eat salmon and shrimp, Tahoe’s lakers are delicious! 

Our Tahoe trips start at dawn and are 1/2-day outings. The fare is $130/person and all tackle and fish cleaning is supplied.

Fishing Report June 12, 2015

I’ve been busy lately, fishing for salmon for the State for a tagging project.I also took the family to the coast for a week vacation. I did my last Delta striper trip of the spring on Monday and we caught a handful despite the 72 degree water. I’m busy with springers for the next couple weeks and then it’s Tahoe light tackle jigging trips!!
