About Your Trip

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!

Attention!!! We are waiting for the Kings Canyon to open up? Cal Trans has been working on the 180 into Cedar Grove all winter to get it ready for summer. Hopefully it will be Middle of May?? I am waiting on details and checking the status weekly. I will post an update ASAP!

Scott has been fly fishing the Kings River and th waters around the Sequoia National Forest for over 20 years! He is professional guide specializing in fly fishing the Kings River and his deep local knowledge of the area is unequaled. Scott is a graduate of the Clearwater Guide School in Northern California living and working full time at Hume Lake Christian Camps.

The Kings River is Scott's favorite freestone river absolutely full of Rainbow and Brown Trout and around
every bend is a spectacular view to take in.

Scott is a great teacher and guide for any skill level. It doesn't matter if you're new to fly fishing and want to learn the sport, or you're already comfortable with your skill, Scott loves sharing his passion for fly fishing with first timers or talking shop about the local bugs and how to fish them with the experts.

Any day on the river with Scott is a memorable experience full of fun, laughter, and positivity! Oh, and lots of fish!

First Time Booking with Us?

Captain Experiences is the home of over 1500 Damn Good fishing and hunting guides. Our mission is to unlock the outdoors for everyone, and we want to help you get out there through our no-hassle online booking experience and our team of outdoors experts.
We vet our guides to make sure they are the best of the best. We want guides who not only put you on 'em, but show you a great time, keep you safe, and give you a memorable experience with your group.
Once you've paid your deposit at checkout, we'll send you a QR Code boarding pass. Just show your guide your boarding pass on the day of the trip, they'll scan it, the remaining balance will transfer automatically, and you'll be all set to get out there. Just make sure you bring a cash tip for the guide!
In the case of inclement weather, our guides will make the call and we'll work with you to reschedule your trip or issue a credit for the full deposit of the trip to be used on any of our trips across the country. Your safety is our top concern.
Each trip’s price is set by the guide and factors in all of their costs. A big determinant of cost is often the type of boat and associated fuel costs, but other guide costs include leases, marina / slip fees, bait costs, and the cost to provide and maintain all of the gear you’ll need on your trip.
Once you book the trip, we will connect you directly with the guide to go over any additional details. In the meantime, our team is always available to answer your questions via email, text, chat, or call!
