3784 Lake Almanor Drive
Westwood CA, United States

Almanor Al’s Guide Service offers fun days out on the water targeting a selection of freshwater species among the clear blue waters and beautiful scenery of Lake Almanor.

The vessel you will be fishing aboard is a 23 ft Design Concepts boat with plenty of space for 4 anglers. She is powered by a massive 435HP Chevy engine up to an awesome 30 cruising speed of knots, which sounds like a great day out all by itself! She comes equipped with GPS, fishfinder, a trolling motor, and a livewell full of the freshest live bait, as well as outriggers, a porta potty, and everything you will need for an amazing day of fishing.

Captain Al has been guiding the lakes in California for over 20 years, and while he specializes in using live bait, he knows that everyone has a different style when it comes to how to catch the best fish. Because of this he provides high quality equipment for a variety of techniques, including fly fishing, trolling, jigging, spinning, and even bowfishing.

All Almanor Al’s trips come with drinks, snacks, live bait, and fishing licenses for all aboard.

Almanor Al went the extra mile to make a great experience for us. It was a slow fishing day because of a mayfly hatch Al stayed 2 extra hours over to try to get my grandson a larger fish his boat is clean comfortable and fully equipped. We didn’t need it but the boat has a heater. We did get a limit. Thanks Al.  Clarence Nancy and Wesley
