Northern California Guide Service –Sacramento

When you go fishing, it’s not just about filling up the cooler. You want to have a great time, be safe, maybe meet some fellow anglers, and create fishing memories that will last a lifetime. All of this and more is awaiting you when you book with Northern California Guide Service. Captain Robert Weese has decades of experience and is excited to get you out on the water and start catching fish.

From the get-go, you’ll feel close to the action in the 2017 24’ Alumaweld Jet boat, custom built to get the maximum out of the rivers that Capt. Robert fishes. Powered by a 400 HP Chevrolet engine, you’ll be at the fishing grounds before you know it.

Once there, all 6 anglers can begin to fish simultaneously. Even if someone is fly fishing, you can still all fish at once! This is perfect for team buildings and family vacations. If you’re fly fishing, please bring your gear from home.

The boat is fully equipped with safety and navigational equipment, as well as features that will give you that extra edge out on the water. This includes a wireless trolling motor to sneak up on the fish, and a live bait tank to keep your bait fresh and ready to go.

The best time to come for Striped Bass is between April and May, although you’ll still find some numbers in the river from March through to August. Sturgeon and Rainbow Trout can be caught year round, but King Salmon can only be caught from July 16 through to mid-December.

There are G Loomis and Shimano rods and reels included in the price. Live bait will be prepared for you before the day. Please bring along your own food and drink and a valid fishing license.

Children are welcome. If they aren’t fishing and are under 5, they can come along for free. Let the captain know in advance so he can prepare the life vests.

Capt. Robert of Northern California Guide Service is looking forward to welcoming you aboard for an awesome day of fishing.
