If you've been looking for a truly exceptional day on the water, go no further. Your guide, Scott, is a graduate of the Northern California's Clearwater Guide School, and knows Kings River better than anyone else on it. With Scott as your guide, you'll be able to try your hand against big Brownies and Rainbows in one of America's most scenic locations, where you'll be able to relax while also piling up the fish! Scott will provide everything you need for an amazing day on the water. His love for fishing is evident in his fly-tying skills, so don't be surprised if you try out every fly in the box until the fish start biting! Scott will work hard to make sure you get your best chance to catch a multitude of fish and have a fun day doing it! The best time to be on the river is summer and fall (but regularly extending much of winter on the lower section). By summer the heavy spring flows have resided and water levels normalize making wading easy and fish more active. If the Lower Kings is too hot in the summer months, you can always visit the Upper Kings where temps are usually more enjoyable. All you need to bring on this trip is sun protection and your California Fishing License—Scott provides everything else you'll need. Get out there and have a blast! Read More

A guide can make or break a day of fishing... This was the best day of fishing in years! Amazing guide, great laughs, so fun, and most of all we caught a ton of fish!



Scott has guided me on the Kings many times and is very knowledgeable of the river. Great teacher and loves getting people involved in fishing. He adapts to the river and each person, doing what it takes to make a great experience.
