Frequently Asked Questions

Below are some common questions we receive from guests. Feel free to call 530-414-1655 or contact us for any additional questions.

Yes, you will need one. A valid California Fishing license can be found at: https://wildlife.ca.gov/Licensing/Online-Sales

Clothing appropriate to the time of year. Socks to wear inside the waders. Sun protection ie. Sun glasses, sun hat, long sleeve shirt. In an effort to reduce single use plastic water bottle, I no longer supply water that way. Please bring your filled favorite water container and I will supply refills from my water jug. A good attitude, a sense of adventure and a willingness to learn are also important thins to bring along.

I supply all gear that is necessary for our day on the water including waders/boots, rods/reels, flies, leaders and tippet at no extra cost. If you have your own gear I suggest that we use it and I can fill in the blanks. On half day trips I supply water and a snack. Full day trips include lunch, water and snack.  Please inform me of any food allergies ahead of time so I can plan accordingly.

We are targeting trout mostly. Rainbows and browns on the Middle Feather. Rainbows, browns and Mt Whitefish on the Truckee. Lahontan Cutthroat Trout are available in the spring in good numbers on Prosser Cr, Alder Creek and the Upper Little Truckee. We also target bass during the summer. Smallmouth bass on the Truckee Reservoirs and Largemouth bass on Lake Davis.

We meet the morning of (or early afternoon for afternoon half day trips) at a predesignated meeting site. After a quick introduction we will head out to our first location. We will gear up, take care of paperwork and discuss our plan of attack. Once on the water I will give instruction based on the anglers skill level and desired goals for the day. From there, we will proceed to fish our butts off till its time to call it a day. Expect to drive your own vehicle to the fishing spots. There will be exceptions to this if we are adventuring far afield or need my 4×4 to get to the spot.

I accept most forms of payment but prefer Venmo. Cash and credit cards are convenient, but I accept whatever is easiest for you.
