So many fish, not enough time.

That's because the month of May is such a crazy time of year. Fish are biting everywhere, waking from their winter doldrums.

We've got biting shad, trout, lake salmon and bass, stripers, the list goes on. Whatever kind of fishing you like, this is the time to go.

Don't forget about epic sturgeon fishing on the Columbia River either - it's world-class fishing, with 20 to 30 sturgeon per day, up to 10 feet long.

Here in the North Valley, shad fishing trips on the larger rivers can see lots of action. We normally have 30-plus fish evenings, and it's lots of fun for all ages.

Ask us about fly fishing for shad (it's a blast!). Evening-only shad trips are available too, give us a call for details.

Speaking of world-class fishing, springtime wild trout fishing in Redding is exceptional! These beautiful, hard-fighting wild rainbows will test your casting and angling skills.

During the scenic day-long trip down the river, it is not uncommon to hook and release many colorful wild trout up to 7 pounds. To make it even more challenging and fun, we use ultra-light gear. It's a trip that every angler should add to their bucket list.

If you'd rather fish on a beautiful calm lake, then you'll want to take a Lake Oroville trip for chrome-bright landlocked salmon and scrappy bass. For many anglers, Lake Oroville can be a challenge, but we'll show you how to fish the lake for consistent results and delicious eating.

s a clean, friendly family-friendly operation with patient, caring guides, we love teaching new anglers of all ages and abilities how to catch fish! No short-tempered, cussing guides here - we love what we do, and it shows.

We also keep the boats and equipment in top shape, always clean and well maintained. The spacious boats have flat bottoms on the inside, along with comfortable seats, so they are ideal for all anglers regardless of age.

Even the fussiest anglers are happy, returning time and time again. We've been fishing every day for decades, and we know what works best for comfort and fish-catching ability.

Most anglers that fish with us are absolutely delighted with our high standards and professionalism. We have a very high rebooking and referral rate, which we're quite proud of.

Fishermen come back again and again for a reason, and it's not just because we catch lots of fish.

All ages and abilities are welcome, and we can accommodate anything from single anglers to large groups. All tackle is provided.

I'm looking forward to fishing with you!
