Guided Trips

Steelhead on the Spey Guide Service offers guided and instructional trips for salmon and steelhead on California’s North Coast Rivers. SOTS trips consist of either drift boat or walk/wade trips depending upon rivers and conditions. Our guides are extremely knowledgeable and experienced and will help tailor your trip to meet your angling needs.

Typical Guide Day

Anglers will meet their guide in the morning, typically around first light, run a shuttle if needed, and get rigged and ready for a day of fishing. From there we will utilize a drift boat/raft or vehicle to cover various steelhead runs. Over the course of the day you will cover a variety of runs searching for fish. Lunch and snacks are provided on all trips and usually consist of fruit, salads, sandwiches, soups, chips, cookies, etc…We can also accommodate any dietary needs, just please let us know ahead of time. After lunch you will cover more water until the end of your day. Day trips typically consist of 8-10 hours on the water. Over the course of the day we will offer insight and instruction to give anglers the best opportunity at hooking fish. We will have a variety of rods, reels, and lines for demo use if needed. We also tie and fish custom flies designed for the rivers we are fishing. These are proven patterns that are hand tied by SOTS guides.
