About Your Guide

Captain Bill has been fishing the waters of San Francisco Bay and beyond for more than 30 years. He's also been fishing the waters surrounding Sacramento for over two and a half decades now. That amount of fishing has given him tremendous knowledge of the local fish, and he's keen on sharing that with his customers. He's a true angler, spending 12 months of the year on the water—when he's not fishing he's maintaining his boat, exploring the waters, or looking for hotspots. Book a trip with him and get to know all the ins and outs of this terrific fishery!

Captain Bill was a great host for me and my two young sons. The boys had a really great time and he was good and patient with the kids. Very family-friendly experience, and some fishing success too!
