5 “S” River Fishing Guide Service

Garden Highway
Sacramento CA, United States

Capt. Gordon loves to put his clients on fish!  He will work hard to ensure that you have a fun and safe trip on the river. His trips run for a full day, however, it is quite common for clients to reach their catch/keep limit early in the day!  There is no need to go on an expensive trip out of state. Capt. Gordon is targeting BIG fish right here in California!!

Gordon is a year round, full time river fishing guide in Central California.  He moved to the Central Valley From Northern California in 1999, where he had guided on the Eel, Mad, Klamath,Trinity and Smith Rivers for many years. His main base of operation now is the Sacramento River System. He fishes the Sacramento and Feather Rivers out of his Jetboat Spring thru Fall and then runs Driftboat Trips during the Winter months on the Feather and American Rivers.

‘5 S’ stands for the five species that he targets; all starting with an “S”:  Striped Bass (Spring/Fall) Sturgeon (Winter), Shad (Spring - Summer) , Salmon (Fall), and Steelhead (Winter). 

Capt. Gordon has been a CA licensed guide for over 25 years and he is a USCG credentialed Captain. He is also bonded and insured. He will work hard to find the fish and is not one to sit and anchor while waiting for the fish to come to him. His game plan is to keep moving; fishing different water and techniques until he finds the fish! 

A benefit of going out on a smaller boat is that your captain will be able to give you individual attention and instruction.  He will be focused on keeping your lines in the water. Gordon is very enthusiastic and loves to put people on BIG fish!

About the Captain

I grew up camping and fishing and admired the knowledge and skill of local guides. I purchased a drift boat in 1985 and became hooked on back trolling for Steelhead on Northern CA and Southern Oregon rivers.
