Northern California Guide Service – Redding

Fishing has always been a passion of Captain Robert Weese. He first got his lines wet at the age of 5, and hasn’t stopped since! He opened his own charter company – the Northern California Guide Service – in 1985, and has loved taking people out on fishing trips year-round ever since.

Have a comfortable ride out in the 2017 24’ Alumaweld Jet boat. This custom built jet boat has a 400 HP Chevrolet engine, getting you to the best fishing grounds in no time at all. All 6 anglers will have space to wet their lines at the same time, due to the long frame and lack of obstructions on board. If you feel like fly fishing, you’re welcome to do so – just bring along your own fly fishing equipment and let the captain know before the trip.

On board you’ll find GPS and fishfinder, which will help give you that extra edge during your trip. The wireless trolling motor will also let you get on top of your prey without them knowing. The live bait will also help you catch your dream catch when out on the river.

Whatever the time of year, there will be opportunities to catch Sturgeon and Rainbow Trout. Between July 16 through to mid-December you’ll be able to target King Salmon. April and May are top months to target Striped Bass, but smaller numbers can also be caught from March to August.

There is no minimum age for children on board. They will love the half day trips. If you know that your child under 5 years of age won’t be fishing, they can come along on the trip for free. The captain will need to be informed before the trip so he can prepare the correct sized life vests.

All rods and reels are included in the price, as well as the live bait. Please buy a fishing license before the day.

Book a trip with Northern California Guide Service today, for a top fishing adventure. You’ll be reeling in huge fish all day long, and might even make some lifelong friends on the shared trips.
