Light Tackle Fun!

We specialize in guided striper trips on the Sacramento River, Feather River and the Delta. Most days, you'll be tossing topwater lures, swimbaits, jigs and other hardware for stripers -- it's such a fun way to fish. You make the cast, you feel (and in the case of topwater, see) the bite and then it's you vs. the fish! Light tackle is the order of the day, so you'll always get the most scrap out of these battlers...

We’re live bait specialists too, so when conditions or the fish call for it we can go that route as well.

We are your full-service California Delta and Sacramento River striper guides with tons of experience (full time guiding since 1998) and look forward to showing you this super fun fishery!

Your full-day fishing trip, unless otherwise specified, will begin just before dawn (exact times depend on time of year, weather, tides etc). Once on the water, we will give a brief seminar on the day’s techniques and then fishing begins!
