Fishing Connection

1605 Steele Canyon Rd
Napa CA, United States

Fishing Connection Charters welcomes anglers young and old to step aboard for a day of freshwater fishing and fun. Spend the day targeting top lake species like Largemouth Bass, Brown Trout, Coho Salmon, and more among the calm beauty of Lake Berryessa.

The boat you will be fishing on is a 19’ Lund convertible. The vessel offers great protection from the sun on hot summer days, and makes for a stable ride at speed thanks to its deep vee hull - useful when she can cruise at over 50 miles per hour! The boat has room for two adult guests, but a family of four can fit on with no problem.

The vessel is equipped with GPS and fishfinder to help sound out the best fish lurking in the murky water below. Once in place, downriggers will let you target those hard-to-reach catches, and a trolling motor will allow you to tempt in the lakes top predators.

On your trip you will be given high quality light tackle, and the choice of live bait and lures. Lures can often tempt in bigger fish, and are perfect for experienced anglers. For beginners, live bait is great because it will more consistently bring in fish. This means there will never be a dull moment, and you can enjoy catching fish after fish.

Captain Sidney Silberberg specializes in catching big trophy Bass, but will adapt your trip to what you want. Whether you are trying to beat your personal best, fishing for food, or just out for a fun time with the kids, Captain Sidney will make sure your trip is enjoyable and productive for all on board.

Fishing Connection Charters is very family-friendly. If the fish aren’t biting, the kids can drive the boat, swim, see wild animals like deer and eagles, and generally have a good time. Captain Sidney is one of the most experienced guides in the area and has helped get countless clients onto the fish of their dreams. So get down to Napa and let him do the same for you!
