About Myself

I have enjoyed fishing throughout California for over 50 years and have focused exclusively in Sacramento area lakes and the California Delta for the last 16 years. After retiring in 2015 from my career of over 30 years, I launched Mick's Fish'N'Trips guide service to share my knowledge and experience with people of all ages. Over the last 16 years I have enjoyed taking friends, coworkers, and first timers out on the water. I have an Operator of Uninspected Passenger Vessel (OUPV) captain's license. I am Red Cross CPR and First Aid certified. I have a California Fish and Wildlife Guide license and am bonded and insured.

equipment used

I have a 17.5 foot Lund Tyee (very safe boat, see the linked video) with a main 150 hp outboard, a 9.9 hp trolling motor and a bow mounted electric trolling motor. I use various line counter reels depending on the species being fished for. 


$150 per person/$300 minimum per trip.

Areas and Species fished

I fish the California Delta for striped bass, the lower Sacramento River for salmon and Sacramento area lakes for trout and kokanee. The main lakes I fish are Pardee, Camanche, Berryessa, Bullards Bar and New Melones. Book your trip today.
