Nevada and Northern California Fly Fishing

We specialize in fly fishing trips for trout in Nevada on a private reservoir and trout and striped bass in Northern California on the Yuba and American rivers. Our trips are tailored to meet your needs whether you are a skilled fly caster or just learning we can make your trip one to remember.

Nevada Private Reservoir Trips

Our Nevada fishing trips are done on a 30 acre private reservoir near Austin Nevada which is a very special place. We fish April, May, June, September and October. These fish are big, fat, and fight really well. An average fish is 18-22 inches most years with trout over 5 pounds possible and we have had a lot of days where you can catch 20-30 fish in a day. The ranch is about a 3 1/2 hour drive from Reno or if you have your own plane you can fly into the airport in Austin and we will pick you up.

These trips include guiding, flies, rods, reels, and fly lines as well as breakfast, lunch and dinner. Lodging will be provided on the ranch in an old 2 bedroom and 2 bathroom bunkhouse. There are also other things you can do like hiking, wildlife viewing, target shooting and coyote hunting all nearby. Fishing can be done from our drift boat, pontoon boats, or float tubes.

If anyone wants to take care of their own meals and provide their own rods, reels, flies and pontoon boats or float tubes the cost would be $100 a day per person less than the prices quoted below with a 3 person minimum.

Yuba River Fishing Trips

Our Yuba River drift boat fly fishing trips are done on the lower Yuba River and we guide February through August. The Yuba is catch and release only with barbless hooks. This allows the fish to grow to a large size, with the average trout between 14 and 17 inches long. These trout fight like no other and if you like dry fly fishing that isn't easy, this is the trip for you. We rarely do anything but fish dry flies so if you are a dry fly guy, give us a call and give the Yuba a try.

You will be provided with top of the line Sage fly rods and Sage, Galvan or Ross reels, as well as leaders, tippet and flies for all trips but feel free to bring your own equipment. All of our equipment is top notch, including a state of the art Hyde Drift Boat. Hyde is well known for its quality and performance. You will enjoy the experience of fishing from a boat so comfortably designed. For more information on Hyde Drift Boats, feel free to call me or contact Hyde at www.hydeboats.com.

Full day trips last 8 hours and half day trips are 4 hours. Lunch and drinks are provided with all full day trips. Prices are for 1-2 people; third person is an additional $100. Fishing License and Steelhead Report Card are required on the Yuba River. Prices do not include fishing license, Steelhead Report Card or guide gratuities.

Drift Boat Fishing Trips - Striped Bass

Our striper trips take place on the lower American River in Sacramento by drift boat. The American River produces several stripers every year over 40 pounds. It is not uncommon to see these giant fish and be able to cast to them. You have the opportunity for a fish of a lifetime, although getting these extremely large fish to eat a fly can be a real challenge. The majority of the fish we catch go from school sized to 10-12 pounds.

We specialize in fly fishing but conventional gear can also be used. You will be provided with top notch Sage fly rods and Sage, Galvan and Ross reels, as well as leaders, tippet and flies. Full day trips last 8 hours and half day trips are 4 hours. Lunch and drinks are provided with all full day trips. Prices are for 1-2 people; a third person is an additional $100.

Fishing License required. Prices do not include license or guide gratuities.
