Jay Clark

In 2006, Jay attended Clearwater Lodge on the Pit River Guide School and gained valuable experience. Soon after, he started his guide service, Jay Clark Fly Fishing. Jay has built a reputation as a laid back, hard working guide who is a consummate professional on and off the water. His knowledge, experience and preparation provide a uniquely fun setting to enjoy the art of fly fishing.

In his free time, Jay can be found exploring his backyard, the Northern Sierra. Fishing, hiking, camping and backcountry skiing are a few of the outdoor pursuits he enjoys. A life long musician, Jay plays guitar and writes music when the muse strikes. Last but not least, Clark is a rabid college football fan and a lifelong fan of the USC Trojans. But dont fret, I will still fish with you even if you are a Bruin. 😉
