Young’s Guide Service

Young’s Guide Service is calling you aboard to experience some of Cali’s finest freshwater fishing. Based out of Yuba City, you’ll explore either the Sacramento or Feather River, going in search of some monstrous fish. These winding waterways aren’t easy to navigate, but Captain Anthony Young has a lifetime of experience fishing here. He knows every nook and cranny of the rivers and can’t wait to share his knowledge with you.

Work your way upstream aboard an 18’ center console. Built locally by the famous Feather River Boat Company, she was especially designed to fish these waters. A light vessel, she’ll reach speeds of up to 40 knots, thanks to the 115 HP Suzuki engine. Up to 2 guests are welcome aboard, while children can also come along free of charge. Take advantage of the free water and stay refreshed throughout your time aboard.

As for the fishing, you’ll have everything you need for a productive day on the water. Using the latest Abu Garcia and Shimano tackle, among others, you’ll have the edge over the monster fish you’ll be targeting. Live bait will be prepared before the trip to use to lure the bite of impressive Sturgeon and Striped Bass. These nationwide favorites grow up to incredible sizes. Use all your strength to reel ‘em in and head home with a tasty treat for lunch.

At the end of your trip, the captain will clean and prepare your catch, so you’re ready to serve it up right away. Bring your A-game to try and fill the fridge with these delicious fish. Experienced anglers and beginners alike are welcome aboard, as Capt. Anthony hopes to share his experience, knowledge, and tales with each customer. Come aboard Young’s Guide Service to discover some of the nation’s greatest freshwater fishing.
