THE WATERS OF CAST HOPE

Cast Hope is privileged to be able to offer trips on some of the greatest waters in Northern California, Southern California, and Western Nevada. To learn more about these great fisheries, simply click on a link below.

NORTH VALLEY REGION

THE LOWER SACRAMENTO RIVER

The Lower Sac is California's best trout fishery. The cold consistent flows out of Lake Shasta create an ideal habitat for rainbow trout and steelhead to grow big and strong. Our guides use drift boats to access the riffles and runs between Redding and Red Bluff. With over 40 floatable miles, this tailwater is fishable almost every day of the year. Read More

 

THE AMERICAN RIVER

The American is one of Northern California's most diverse fisheries right in the middle of a bustling town. The American hosts great populations of winter and spring steelhead, shad, and striper populations. Literally those that live in Sacrament can walk out their door almost any day of the year and fish for some something awesome. Read More

 

THE FEATHER RIVER

The Feather is California's most phenomenal Central Valley steelhead river. Below Lake Oroville, this tailwater is open all year long, but we focus on this fishery in the fall and spring. CastHope guides use drift boats to access the river between Oroville and Gridley. Read More

 

THE YUBA RIVER

Just north of Marysville on Highway 20, you will find some of the strongest fighting rainbows and steelhead found anywhere. On the Yuba River each and every fish tests the angler's abilities and gear. This river is a classic tailwater fishery with many techniques proving successful. Over the course of the year clients have the opportunity to throw dry flies, streamers, and nymphs. We spend equal time between wading and drifting the clear cold waters of the river. Read More



TRUCKEE/RENO REGION

TRUCKEE/LITTLE TRUCKEE RIVERS

This is one of California’s classic freestones. With a few exceptions, most guide trips originate from the town of Truckee and head down stream to the Nevada state line. This stretch is filed with every type of water imaginable, runs, riffles, plunge pools, boulders and everything else you can imagine in a bigger river. Read More
