ShastaTrout fly fishing guides donate trips that help raise $14,000 for California Trout
The Cal Trout Annual Gala and fundraiser at the Julia Morgan Ballroom in San Francisco on May 7th was their biggest success ever! We couldn’t be more pleased.
Shasta Trout local guides Craig Nielsen, John Rickard, Gabe Duran and Jim Andras donated a weekend of guided steelhead fishing on the Klamath River for six to eight anglers. We would like to take the opportunity to thank our partners in providing this gift, our good friend John Jacques owner of the Klamathon Lodge, and acclaimed private chef Anne Dickey, Paul Roberts who is with Bond and Harlen Wineries and is one of only 110 Master Sommeliers in the world!
Fine wines were also donated for the weekend by our generous friends at Schug, Titus and Chappellet. A special thanks to phenomenal friend Paul Torres with Cult Wine Central for his donation of fine wine from the Oakville Wine Company and his unfailing vision and guidance towards making the dream of this gift a reality.
ShastaTrout owner and guide Craig Nielsen also donated a guide date on the McCloud River as part of a Mount Shasta Adventure for two auction lot at the Gala. The weekend features a stay at a Lakeside Chalet at the Mount Shasta Resort, dinner at the Trinity Cafe and two days of guided fly fishing, one on the Nature Conservancy and the other on the exclusive Wyntoon property, part of William Randolph Hearst’s private estate.
