NorCal Fish & Fowl – Yuba

NorCal Fish And Fowl Guide Service specializes in river fishing in North California. Head out on a guided river fishing trip on the Sacramento, Feather, and Yuba Rivers, from Shasta County all the way to Sutter County. Your guide is Captain Jeff Gonzales, a fellow as passionate about fishing as he is about guiding!

Hop aboard a 22’ North River jet boat with a 5-guest capacity. Powered by a 230 HP Chevrolet 350 engine, with a maximum cruising speed of 50 knots, this vessel is just what you need when changing productive locations. It features a GPS and Fishfinder that reveal those locations, and a wireless trolling motor to keep you stealthy.

Capt. Jeff will take you fishing for King Salmon, American Shad, and Striped Bass during the spring, summer, and fall. These species are available at short intervals during different parts of the year so book early! On the other hand, Rainbow Trout is available year-round and always makes for a reliable, and delicious, target.

Using a variety of G. Loomis rods, Penn reels, an assortment of tackle, and bait, you will set off on your adventure. Whether you’re up for fly fishing or conventional spinning – Capt. Jeff delivers. He’ll also dish out pro tips so your trip is as productive as possible.

At the end of the trip, your catch is cleaned and bagged to take home for a delicious dinner. Please make sure to pick up a valid fishing license from the California Department of Fish and Wildlife beforehand, and prepare for a memorable experience with Captain Jeff Gonzales!
