Northern California Guided Fly Fishing Trips

Experience guided fly fishing with master guide Jon Baiocchi on Lake Davis, the Middle Fork Feather River, the Truckee River, the Lower Yuba River, the Little Truckee River, &  the North Fork Yuba River.

Join me in Northern California’s beautiful trout country, from the lush foothills of the Lower Yuba River, to the mountains surrounding the Truckee River of the Northern Sierra as I share with you my passion for fly fishing. From small mountain creeks, to trophy lakes like Lake Davis, and legendary freestone rivers, I will enlighten your day with fantastic memories to last a lifetime.

Baiocchi’s Troutfitters is the top guide service for the Northern Sierra and has become recognized as the leader in guest services and instruction. Trout stalking the shallows in lakes and prowling the banks of the finest rivers is my specialty. Beginners can gain insight and knowledge from my simple approach to fly fishing, and for the accomplished expert I can eliminate countless hours of prospecting new waters, while teaching new and advanced techniques. Experience counts; I’m a native Northern Californian who has been a serious fly angler since 1972, and an independent fly fishing guide since 1997. Baiocchi’s Troutfitters guide service has been well received by my guests, check out the testimonials page, services offered, and the legendary destinations to wet a line. No matter the venue, you’ll walk away a better angler through my instruction and knowledge.

“Education on the resource is a big part of my approach for each and every one of my guests” ~ Jon Baiocchi, Baiocchi’s Troutfitters

2017 Fly Fishing Conditions, Updates, Presentations, Workshops, Outings, & Clinics

Spring has sprung, the days are longer, and aquatic hatches are waking up. With the huge amount of snow still in the Sierra, the rivers are running very high, and the fishing has been challenging. overall temperatures have been in a warming trend in the upper elevations of the Northern Sierra, and there are opportunities to still wet a line in between storms. Fish still have to eat, and high water does not affect them in any way. It’s typical big water fishing for this time of year, with different tactics, and concentrating on the side water. Focusing on stillwater venues will be of importance during this year’s runoff. Read my latest reports on the upcoming Fall fishing conditions and available dates for my fly fishing tours, workshops, and outings. Also check out my presentation schedule for 2017 and 2018 where you can learn from my highly informative Powerpoint programs on a variety of fly fishing topics. Make sure to click on the links provided for the 2018 Native Sons Truckee Fly Fishing Tours, the 2018 Lake Davis Still Water Outings, and the latest events offered from Lance Gray & Company and myself. It’s time to fish, explore, and relish in the Northern California wonderland.
