NOW BOOKING Stampede Kokanee.  If you have not heard yet, Kokanee fishing at Stampede has been amazing in both size and quality.  We are catching fish over 17"!!!  Boat limits have been the norm with limit sticks full of 14”to 17” kokanee.  We are also releasing another 20-30 fish per trip.   If you are not catching 10+ fish an hour, something is wrong in your set-up and you need to book a trip.
 
This is the time of year when I run a morning and afternoon trip, but please call me first before booking an afternoon trip as we are getting into monsoon season and it may be too windy or unsettled to fish the afternoons.  Normally an afternoon trip is booked 2-3 days in advance when there is no room in the morning trips.  Morning trips start at 5:30 amand we are off the water before 1pm to take the second group out and then we are off the water by 8pm.
 
All rods and tackle are provided and if you require a left handed reel, let me know before the trip and everything will be ready to go.  All you need to bring is a SIGNED AND PRINTED fishing license, food and drinks, and a small ice chest with ice for your catch which I will clean or fillet to your liking.  I highlight a signed and printed fishing license because in the state of California, a picture on your phone does not qualify according to DFW's regulations.
 
Tight Lines Guide Service will be fishing Stampede Reservoir through Mid September.  As of right now dates I have available are August 25,26,27,28,29, 31 and September 1.2.4.5.7.8.  Then I’ll be switching over to Sacramento Netro Salmon starting on September 14.
