Fryefishing specializes in putting together trips to meet your schedule and budget. Based out of Anderson, California, the crew launches from various locations from Redding to Redbluff that all hold a great number of fish.

Enjoy live bait fishing for Striped Bass and fly fishing for a large variety of species that can be found in the Trinity River and the Lower Sacramento River, such as Shad, Steelhead, Salmon, and Brown Trout.

Your guide Jerry Frye has been working professionally for almost two decades now. The biggest fish caught by his customers was a 58-pound Salmon, while Jerry himself has hooked a 35-pound Striped Bass that was 44 inches long and took him 45 minutes to reel in.

Jerry Frye is also a great teacher and will show you the methods and techniques that work best in his local waters.

You will be drift fishing from a fully outfitted 17’ aluminum drift boat with a small outboard designed to speed through the slow ‘frog water’ and power you back upstream to re-fish productive water. Jerry launches close to the fish so get ready to begin the action shortly after you leave the shore.

All trips come inclusive with gear and tackle that are specifically designed for the Trinity and Sacramento Rivers. All the necessary fly fishing equipment is also included in the price but you are more than welcome to bring your own ‘lucky rod’ if you wish.

    Stripers run out of Pacific Ocean into the Sacramento River to spawn each spring. This is an awesome time of year to get out on the water and battle with these hard fighting (good tasting) fish. We've boated Stripers up to 35.5 pounds and 44" long. Stripers reach 60+ pounds in the Sacramento River. We target big fish! Launch points will be determined by where you will be able to catch fish. We will fish until we get limits or 7-8 hours if it takes that long. Great fishing for kids!
