Al Brown's Guide Service

Sacramento River is well-known in freshwater fishing circles as a bountiful place to go after a variety of gorgeous fish. The beautiful nature surrounding it, coupled with the fantastic fishing that it offers makes it a premier freshwater fishing destination. Al Brown’s Guide Service is the “local pro” here, ready to put you on the best, secret fishing spots around and bring you to the hottest bite!

Climb aboard their 20’ center console boat, manufactured by Design Concept. The boat is specifically designed for river fishing, so you can rest easy that every advantage you can get is provided. Six anglers can fish simultaneously in comfort. She’s also powered by a 350 HP Chevy engine, allowing you to fly across the river at 30 knots. A full set of modern electronics is on board, to give you an edge in navigation and fish finding. A wireless trolling motor is there to keep you steady while you’re aiming for that dream catch!

Al Brown will be your guide, so rest easy, you’re in good hands. He’s a California native with over three decades of local experience. You’ll target Chinook Salmon, Rainbow Trout, Striped Bass, Shad, Sturgeon, and other species from Redding to Colusa. You can use light or heavy tackle, while you spin, troll, or drift fish across the Sacramento River. Flyfishing is also available.

All equipment you may require is provided to you by the guide service, except flyfishing gear. If you prefer your own gear, feel free to bring it along. The crew will clean and fillet your catch free of charge. There’s a minimum age policy of 3 years old. The boat is disabled accessible and Al Brown’s Guide Service invites anglers of all skill levels to join them on this great freshwater adventure!

Captain Al grew up in the area, he's a river local through and through. He loved fishing so much that, even as a kid, he'd steal his dad's bike to go fishing on the river. He knows all the nooks and crannies that this great river offers, including the secret fishing spots. Al Brown has been guiding the waters of Sacramento River for well over a decade now and he's keen on sharing his vast local experience with his customers!
