Top Fishing Charters in Redding


Fishing in Redding, CA is something that every angler needs to tick off his or her bucket list. The Sacramento River runs through the heart of this city, the Trinity River is just a stone’s throw away, and there’s an abundance of lakes to explore, too. This means that casting a line here is not just exciting, but also easy – you’re never very far from a top-quality fishery! 
 
There’s a reason why Redding made the list of “North America’s Top 10 Trout Fishing Towns.” Rainbow and Brown Trout can be found all over the city, with the Sacramento and McCloud Rivers being especially fruitful. Find a fishing guide, and they’ll use their local knowledge to make sure you’re fishing the most productive waterway for your target species.
 
More of a Salmon fan? You’ll be pleased to know that this fish is abundant throughout Redding. Let your guide know that you want to battle Chinook and Coho, and they’ll take you to the best spots. The Trinity River is bustling with these fish, with summertime through November being especially plentiful. Battle Creek, a tributary of the Sacramento River, also offers up some hot Salmon action.
 
Redding fishing guides tailor trips depending on the species you’d like to target and what’s biting. If there’s a body of water you’re set on fishing, let them know, but otherwise it’s good to go with the flow! You can generally opt for half day to full day adventures, with shorter trips being a good option for newer anglers or families with children.
