Northern California Fly Fishing Guide Network Resource

California has great fly fishing and lots of exciting variety when it comes to target species. For example the area around Redding in the northern part of the state has some of the best fly fishing water in the West! Streams, rivers and lakes in the area are home to everything from five distinct species of Trout along with Steelhead, Salmon, Shad to several warm water species. On top of that, great California weather allows for year round fly fishing opportunities!

Come find out why so many fly fishers come to California and wine country with fly fishing in mind. If you will be in the San Francisco, Napa, San Jose, Oakland, Sacramento or Redding area on business or pleasure let us connect you with a truly exceptional fly fishing experience. California is a great place to vacation and it is easy to add a fly fishing day to your trip or plan a multi day fly fishing vacation here.

Look to us for your guide booking needs on the Upper and Lower Sacramento Rivers, the San Francisco Delta, San Diego, as well as Putah Creek and the Yuba, Trinity, McCloud, Fall, Pit and Feather Rivers to name a few.

Here is what some recent clients have said:

"Excellent day of fishing! All we were hoping for is to learn a few fly-fishing techniques and to get out of the city for a day. Within 15 minutes of our first cast, we landed a 2-pound wild rainbow...Within another 10 minutes we landed a 5-pound wild rainbow awesome... Excellent day of fishing!" Ben N. San Francisco, CA

"Very knowledgeable outfitter and guide...they were honest about conditions and we opted to fish another river other than what we had planned. Had a great day and landed over 20 fish! Thanks Mike and Jordan!" Kevin S. Highland Park, TX

"Excellent guided fishing experience! I am a local San Francisco Bay Area fly fisherman who fished Putah Creek about 15 times and was skunked every time. I was almost about to quit when I decided to give it one more try and seek professional advice. I called Off the Hook and booked a guide... I learned a great deal and caught fish including a 9 lb 30" trout. My experience was first rate! Highly recommend!" John H. San Francisco Bay Area
