Upper Sacramento River
Upper Sacramento River Fly Fishing Guides - Dunsmuir, Mount Shasta, McCloud, Redding Area.
The Upper Sacramento River is the most important river in California, it feeds the Central Valley and the world with its glacial waters from tributary sources like Mount Shasta City Park, Dunsmuir’s Mossbrae Falls, Hedge Creek Falls and many feeder creeks that flow into the Sacramento River Canyon drainage.
We have guided fly fishing on the Upper Sac since 1994 and are the only guide service that offers private licensed raft fly fishing float trips on 3 different sections of trout water south of Dunsmuir. We mainly nymph this river guiding and fishing from the boat and wading as both are equally productive with the chance of productive dry fly fishing in afternoons where trout are actively feeding on the surface.
We have guides that know the water as we are on it daily and have guided the area for over 20 years. We can help you with local lodging and restaurant suggestions also as we know the best in the area. We look forward to guiding and showing you around the area, let us know how we can make your guide trip the best possible. This is a great trip to do as a beginner, family or corporate outing.
