Bill is one of the true fishing guide legions with more than 30 years fishing Northern California’s fresh and saltwater species.  He holds US Coast Guard Master Licensed and fishes all twelve months of the year for multiple species of game fish.  Over his many years he has put his clients onto quality and often trophy-size fish especially sturgeon. Whether trolling for Salmon and Stripers on the Sacramento River, the lower American, or Feather River, trolling or bait fishing for Stripers and Sturgeon on the Delta, or fishing the Bay or Ocean you’ll find Bill on the water or doing his maintenance on the boats.” Northern California is not only my home but a playground for what I Love to do, FISH!!”
