It's important to come prepared

Below is a list of required and recommended items to bring with you or to consider as you are packing for your trip. Having everything you may want or need will make your day on the water much more enjoyable!

  • A VALID CALIFORNIA FISHING LICENSE. Additionally, a salmon/ steelhead report card is required when fishing the Klamath River only.


  • LUNCH, BEVERAGES, AND ANY OTHER PERSONAL ITEMS needed for a full day on the river.

  • DRESS IN LAYERS for the cool mornings and pack some lighter clothes for the afternoons that tend to heat up. Sometimes you may have to carry rain gear especially during the rainy seasons, so do check what the weather man says before packing your backpack.

  • DON'T FORGET YOUR FAVORITE HAT, SUNGLASSES, AND SUNSCREEN (NO SPRAY-ON PLEASE) to keep your skin from burning up from the sun’s rays. 

  • You’ll definitely need a CAMERA to record that special moment when you catch a that fish of a lifetime.  I will always have the ability to take pics throughout the day as well and I can send them to you after our day of fishing. 

  • ICE CHEST large enough to take fish fillets home in.

  • LIFE JACKETS (comfortable) for children 13 and under who are required to wear them for the duration of the fishing trip.
