Watson Fishing Guide Service – Sacramento

You may have already fished with Watson Fishing Guide Service in Gold Beach. Now, you have the chance to embark on a fishing adventure with Captain Jayson on the Sacramento River, too!

He specializes in taking his guests on exciting Salmon and Striped Bass trips, and he always delivers. Join this amazing guide, who has over 40 years of experience under his belt, and learn how to catch fish like a pro.

You’ll be fishing aboard a 23’ Willie boat, ideal for up to 4 guests. This aluminum vessel offers a stable and comfortable ride throughout. She’s powered by twin 250 HP Yamaha engines and features GPS and Fishfinder. To move quietly across the water, the captain will occasionally use a wireless trolling motor so you won’t spook the fish.

You can go after Chinook and Coho Salmon from October till mid-December. They are a little harder to catch this time of year but they are larger, so the effort definitely pays off. Striped Bass trips are available from March, until the end of June.

Anglers of all ages and skill levels are welcome to join, so don’t let a lack of fishing experience stop you. These trips are also family-friendly and you can bring your kids any time.

Capt. Jayson covers your fishing equipment and cleans your catch after the trip. You’ll need to purchase your fishing license in advance and prepare some snacks and drinks for the day.

Whenever you feel like it’s time for some fun on the water, take a trip with Watson Fishing Guide Service!

I'm from a fishing family and I personally have over 40 years of boating and fishing experience. I'm a licensed fishing guide in Oregon & California. My specialty is fishing for Salmon, but I also do a lot of Bass tournaments. Anglers of all skill levels are welcome aboard and I love teaching newbies how to fish.
