Fishing Northern California

Northern California fishing offers a wide range of opportunities. By far the most rewarding experiences are in the Sacramento River watershed. Its water types and fishing prospects are diverse and unique.

The massive Sacramento River watershed encompasses important rivers and lakes. The rivers include not only the Sacramento River, but the American, the Feather, the McCloud, the Pit, the Yuba, and Squaw Creek. Among the lakes are Shasta, Whiskeytown, Lake Shastina, Lake Siskiyou, and the McCloud and Keswick Reservoirs.

The “Sac” (as locals fondly call the Sacramento River), stretches 384 miles and drains a third of California’s water. It has the distinction of the state record King Salmon catch at 88 lbs.

Northern California Fishing Reports

The River Pirate brings you the most current Northern California fishing reports, the latest Sacramento River fishing reports, and the latest Shasta Lake fishing reports.

Dyed-in-the-wool fishermen know if you want to catch fish, you go where the fish are. What bit yesterday may not bite today. But general trends do hold and fishing forecasts from Master Guides carry a lot of weight.

Few basins rival the Sacramento Valley’s fish biomass density. Its rivers and streams are measured in thousands of fish per mile, while its reservoirs are gauged in tons per square acre. This is a fisherman’s paradise.

If you’re looking for a proven fishing guide who can put you on fish, then come to Northern California and fish with Pro-Guide Ken Hoffman on his powerful jet boat. Experience a guided fishing trip only a Master Guide can provide. 

Sacramento River Fishing Guide

The Sacramento River watershed’s constantly changing water levels peak and recede in annual cycles. This flux is both natural and man-made. Knowledge and experience of these rhythms can mean the difference between a productive fishing trip and a waste of valuable fishing time. Having someone who can pinpoint the best time and place to fish is what makes guided fishing so much more productive than spending your years on trial and error.

The River Pirate’s Pro-guide, Ken Hoffman, has over 30 years’ experience fishing the Sacramento River basin. Ken knows the watershed thoroughly and will enjoy showing you the best fishing Northern California has to offer.
