Hi Charlie- thank you so much! That was a good day and so glad you guys were willing to travel a little farther for the Yuba River experience. Fish on!

Rich is a fantastic guide. He knows the river so well and is so good at helping to improve technique and ultimately catch more (and bigger) fish. If you're in the Bay Area and looking to hunt trout, Rich is your guy.
