Northern California Guide Service – Colusa

Are you ready for an awesome fishing adventure? Then you need to book a trip with Northern California Guide Service. With decades of experience under his belt, Captain Robert Weese will make sure you have an excellent day out with him. He will do everything he can to put fish in the cooler year round. You are in safe and capable hands with him.

Step aboard the 2017 24’ Alumaweld Jet boat. You’ll get to the fishing grounds in no time, with the 400 HP Chevrolet engine. This sleek boat has room enough for 6 anglers to fish without crossing lines – even when fly fishing! If you wish to fly fish, just bring along your gear and let the captain know in advance.

There is full safety and navigational gear on board, so you can fish with peace of mind. The wireless trolling motor and fishfinder will help give you that extra edge when out on the river. There is also a live bait tank – fresh bait will help you get the best fish!

Depending on the time of year, you’ll be able to catch a variety of fish. Between March and April, you can target Striped Bass. Peak time is between April and May. For King Salmon, book a trip between July 16 through to mid-December. Sturgeon and Rainbow Trout can be caught year round.

On the trip, top quality rods and reels are provided. These are from G Loomis and Shimano. Also included is the live bait you’ll use, which the captain will prepare before the trip. This gives you your whole trip to go after your dream catch. You’ll need to buy a fishing license before the day.

Children are welcome on these trip, and if you know your little one (under 5) won’t be fishing, they can come along for free. Let the captain know in advance so he can prepare the correct sized life jackets.

A day out with Northern California Guide Service is a day well spent. You’ll love fishing along the Sacramento River, and have a blast reeling in the big fish!
