Big Daddy's Guide Service – Lake Almanor

Big Daddy’s Guide Service is a fishing charter ready to take you out on an adventure in Lake Almanor. Captain Bryan Roccucci has more than two decades of experience under his belt and is always ready to take you out on a fishing trip to remember. Whether you’re a recent angler or an old hand, Bryan will make sure the trip is tailored to your needs.

You will be fishing aboard a 23’ Boulton Powerboat that’s powered by a 300HP Mercury engine, with enough room to house 6 prospective anglers, so feel free to bring along a couple of friends or colleagues. The boat has all the necessary safety and navigation gear you’d need for a productive trip, as well as things like a wireless trolling motor when a bit of finesse is needed.

Lake Almanor is full of various Trout and Salmon during the year, and Captain Bryan knows just where to find them. Whether you prefer conventional fishing or the fly, you’re sure to have a blast in these waters. Bryan will provide you with top quality custom rods if you do not have your own.

The price of the trip will include all the necessary fishing gear you’ll need, and Bryan will clean and pack your catch after the trip for your convenience. Make sure to bring a valid California fishing license, a pair of polarized sunglasses, and some drinks and snacks if you’re so inclined and the adventure can begin.
