Steelhead Trips start Jan. 1!

The upper ends of the American & Feather rivers open to steelhead fishing Jan. 1 and that is the official kick-off to my winter steelhead schedule.

What’s nice about these local fisheries is you can go chase chrome steelhead without having to make the long drive to the North Coast.  Even from places like Fresno and the Bay, you go fishing and be home all in the same day instead of two or three that it takes to go north!

In the winter, sturgeon and striped bass trips will also continue...
