 03/30/18- Our Nor Cal lakes are going off this winter trout fishing season. We've put some great German Browns and rainbows in the net so far this year and expect to continue to find success trolling big flies and spoons near the surface well into summer and beyond.  Its the quality over quantity when trout fishing this time of the year, although we can fish for limits as well. The weather can be harsh, but we have everything you will need to catch the big fish in our 24' Willie jet boat.  A fully enclosed passenger area, which includes a heater for the cold days, will keep you comfortable and dry during your day of fishing on Nor Cal's finest lake fishing adventures!

Jeff Goodwin’s Guide Service offers year-round fully guided sport fishing trips on Northern California lakes and the Sacramento River. We can accommodate large groups with multiple guides or just spend the day fishing with your party of two!  With very competitive pricing and a reputation for being the top lake fishing charter in California, your decision to fish with us should be without hesitation. 

We guide our clients year round, running around 200 trips per year on our Northern California waters.  As a full time professional fishing guide and charter captain, I can offer our guests the very best experience the fishing industry has to offer.  As the #1 lake fishing charter in California, we offer some excellent guided fishing opportunities on Shasta, Trinity, Keswick, and Whiskeytown lakes for landlocked King salmon, Kokanee salmon, rainbow and brown trout all year long.

We have become the premier fishing charter on these lakes by spending hundreds of days on the water per year and no one spends as many days fishing these lakes as we do.  Whether you have a large group or a party of two, we book all of our year round trips during the peak periods of each season specific to each body of water.  We do this to ensure our fishing clients have the best opportunity to experience catching the fish we are pursuing that day.  We do however, experience some of our best trips of the year during off peak periods on the water so don't hesitate to book during these timeframes. Rest assured, I will always give you an honest fishing report, its just how I do business. 

 We're ready for your winter lake and river fishing charters in our comfortable 24' Willie jet boat!

"I have dreamed of catching a Salmon every since I was a young boy. Jeff Goodwin helped me to realize that dream. He is an outstanding guide, his boat, tackle and techniques were undoubtedly the best on the river. Jeff is professional and his attention to detail sets him apart from the rest. We will definitely be using Jeff on our next trip to the Sacramento River."
