Fish First! Guided Trips and Fishing
FishFirst! guided trips are a great way to learn specific fisheries and fishing techniques. Our guides
are experts on regional rivers and streams and are eager to make your fishing experience fun and memorable.
Fish First! stores are located within easy driving distance of Northern California's best flyfishing
waters. Within an hour of our Albany store, you can find great fishing for striped bass and largemouth
bass in the Sacramento/San Joaquin Delta, and for winter rainbows in Putah Creek. Fish First!'s striped
bass guide services are based out of the Delta
Bed & Breakfast, a beautiful recreation home on Bethel Island, immediately adjacent to Franks
Tract. Accommodations are available exclusively for our guided clients. Walk out the door, step in the
boat, and fishing is minutes away.
Our Chico store is centrally located to a variety of fishing opportunities and species of fish. Excellent
trout fishing is available on the Yuba River, the Upper and Lower Sacramento River, the Pit River and
in the foothill streams near Chico. Year-round steelhead on the Feather River, winter steelhead on Butte
Creek, and largemouth bass in local ponds are all less than a half hour away from the store.
Guided trips are $400 for one or two anglers, lunch included. Half day trips are $300. Guided striped
bass trips are $500 for one or two anglers, lunch included. Special arrangements can be made for groups
of more than two anglers. Click to our Guided

Select guided trips may be conducted on streams and rivers under Special Uses Permits with the Lassen & Plumas
