We are the reservation center for private waters and guides in Siskiyou, Tehema, Trinity, and Shasta counties. Our guides are local experts who live here. They're professionals trained and skilled in every aspect of their avocation and spend time doing that job nearly every day of the year.
There's no question The Fly Shop® is the number one guide service in Northern California. Our back yard includes the famous Sacramento River, and the Trinity, Upper Sacramento, Hat Creek, Pit River, Fall River, McCloud River, and Klamath are all within striking distance. We've also got a few tricks up our sleeves, and some other lesser known regional stillwaters and streams.
Our professional guides know all the local rivers, streams, and stillwaters intimately. They work together as a team, sharing information with each other. By combining their talents, ideas, and everyday experience they've become the most successful guides in Northern California. Our guides are models for proper streamside etiquette and everyone rowing a boat for The Fly Shop® is exclusively catch-and-release. When a fly rodder has spent a day in the boat with one of our guides, he/she walks away a better angler.
Most of our guided fishing is less than an hour away. Many of the best spots are right in our backyard and only minutes from the front door of The Fly Shop®.Northern California is a diverse angling Mecca, with a temperate climate and reliable fishing nearly every day of the year. Dedicated fly fishermen can target rainbows, brown trout, brookies, steelhead, sea run brown trout, both Chinook and Coho salmon, spotted bass, largemouth bass, smallmouth bass, stripers, and shad. Our backyard has made its mark as a regional destination for traveling fly fishermen.
Give our guide service management team a call and we'll tailor a trip that matches your schedule and passions. We can help with local hotels and restaurants, non-angling activities, and whatever else is necessary to ensure that your trip to our area is memorable.
