Holiday Gift Special & Shasta Area Fishing Report

‘Tis the Season of Thanks

I am writing to give thanks for helping me to live the dream life, guiding fly fishing in Mt. Shasta California, one of the most beautiful places on the planet, and traveling the world fly fishing. As a small token of my appreciation I am offering a holiday special.  Gift certificates can be purchased for a 10% discount.  I hope this might be the perfect gift this holiday for you, a family member or fly fishing friend.

Plan Your 2017 Fly Fishing Travel Adventures Now!
In 2016 I joined my good friends at Flywater Travel as a commissioned agent selling worldwide fly fishing travel adventures, while continuing to personally guide trips on the Upper Sac, McCloud and Klamath Rivers.

North Umpqua dry fly henGroups of Shasta Trout guests utilized my expertise and Flywater Travels’ extensive network to travel to several destinations this past year, including Fishing Bear Lodge in Alaska,  The Middle Fork of the Salmon in Idaho, the Speywater Lodge on the Grande Ronde, Morrison’s Lodge on the Rogue, the Steelhead Lodge on the Rogue, Indian Creek Lodge on the Trinity, as well as my hosted trips on the North Umpqua in Oregon, Deschutes River in Oregon, Scott River Lodge on the Klamath, Nass Basecamp and the Skeena River Lodge in BC, Oregon Coast, Owyhee River in Idaho, and Harrison’s Homestead in Montana to name just a few.

December 2, 2016 

This fall has been unseasonably wet, much different than recent years (16.45″ vs. 1.86″ of precip last year) but river conditions have fallen back into shape quickly after storms.  Flows on the Klamath continue to be low and clear and the past few weeks we’ve seen an influx of fresh, big, bright winter fish, following one of the poorest fall runs in history.  Some guests enjoyed the first double digit steelhead day of the season this past weekend.

Fishing on the Upper Sac has moved to a winter pattern with the middle of the day fishing fair to good with mornings and evenings being slow at best.  The good news is that there are still some October Caddis about on sunny days and this is the time of year we find our largest specimens, trophy Rainbows running into the teens and a few breaking the magical 20 inch mark.

I still have a few guide dates available after the holidays, so drop me a line to join the action!
