There are several hundred miles of terrific trout and steelhead rivers, and a bunch of lakes and streams within easy striking distance of Redding. Much of the fishing is straightforward and ideal for the self-reliant angler. However, there are spots where fly fishermen could use help.

Some local fisheries are protected with fly-fishing only, catch-and-release and special closures designed to ensure the fishing around here will stay good for generations.

Each of our private ranches offers a one-of-a-kind quality fly fishing experience in locations ranging from rugged wilderness streams, alpine lakeside cabins, luxurious lodging, and even membership in the historic Bollibokka Fly Fishing Club (an extensive waiting list) on the McCloud River.
