JP’s Guide Service

Enjoy the fruits of the beautiful Feather River with JP’s Guide Service. Captain John Church offers fully guided fishing trips in the Sacramento Valley from August till November. Whether you’re a novice or an experienced angler, you’ll appreciate the time spent on the boat, enjoying peace and quiet, and the most relaxing sport there is.

The main target on each trip is King Salmon but that’s not the only fish you can catch here. The Feather River is rich with Sturgeon, Striped Bass, and Shad, so you never know what might bite your bait. Trolling is one of the key ways to catch them. The enjoyment doesn’t stop when the trip ends, as you get to keep the catch and the captain will clean it for you. Bring your cooler if you’re saving it for later, or take it straight to a restaurant and enjoy your well-earned meal.

You’ll be fishing from a 19’ Smoker Craft boat that accommodates up to 3 guests. This jet boat is powered by a 115 HP Mercury engine that’s great when you need to be fast, and a wireless trolling motor that’s great when you need to be quiet. Your full fishing equipment, including rods, reels, and lures is included in the price and always ready on the boat.

Make sure to purchase your fishing license in advance and bring some snacks and drinks for the day. Everything else is covered by the captain.

The trips with JP’s Guide Service are family friendly, too! Enjoy this adventure with your loved ones!
