Gary Anderson Guide Service

It’s time to get back to your roots and book a fishing trip with Gary Anderson Guide Service. You’ll spend the day fishing with Captain Gary himself, who has been fishing for nearly 5 decades. Fishing is Capt. Gary’s passion and he is looking forward to sharing it with you. He fishes on the Sacramento River and the Feather River, depending on what’s biting and other factors. He’ll make sure you have a great time fishing with him.

The day will be spent on his new 25’ Rogue Jet boat. This fantastic vessel has individual seats for each angler, so when you’re not fishing you can sit back with a cold one and enjoy the views. Once a fish bites, there is enough room to maneuver around. There are also twin 400 HP engines that will help you get to the fishing grounds fast, not wasting any time of your trip.

You’ll be fishing for Striped Bass, Chinook Salmon, and Rainbow Trout. After the trip, or once you reach limits of these, the captain will fillet them for you, ready to decide how to cook. The limits can change yearly, so Captain Gary will inform you of the current regulations. Make sure you have a cooler in the car full of ice to take your fish back with you.

Capt. Gary is a patient captain who will show you the tricks of the trade on every trip. This makes these trips great for beginners. Kids of all ages are welcome and there are life vests on board. However, if you have your own more comfortable life vests for the kids, feel free to bring them along.

You should bring a small cooler of food and drink along with you. Wear light layers and light-soled shoes. You should also bring sunscreen, a sun hat, and a light jacket, too.

Included in the price are top quality rods and reels from Shimano and Berkley. Live bait is also provided. Anyone over 16 in your group should buy a fishing license before the day of the trip.

"I have been hunting and fishing for 47 of my 52 years. I have a love for the outdoors and especially love being on the water. I enjoy the fast action of Striped Bass but my true love is catching BIG King Salmon while side drifting roe under a slip bobber." Captain Gary was in law enforcement for 29 years and decided to start guiding fishing trips just before he retired. He loves Salmon fishing the most and he’s all about showing his clients a good time on the water and sharing his passion with others.
