Offering gourmet meals, warm accommodations, expert guiding and world-class fly fishing instruction, your stay at Clearwater Lodge will be one that beckons you to return year after year. . .

Your Host

Leaving behind the business and political arena to pursue her dream of owning a guest retreat, Michelle Titus purchased Clearwater Lodge just in time to open for the 2013 season. Providing guests an unforgettable experience by feeling like a home away from home is what drives Michelle’s enthusiasm for the lodge and guest relationships each season. Clearwater Lodge has never been in more caring hands. Occasionally joined by her daughters Allie and Raquel Ferrari, Michelle's dedication to carrying on the original Clearwater legacy of hospitality, fine dining and world-class guided fishing is evident in every detail of your stay.


Clearwater Lodge is associated with an exceptional network of guides. They are all accomplished anglers as well as patient teachers and pleasant companions for a day on the water. Many returning guests request the same guide they previously fished with year after year. This entire team is arguably the best group of guides in the west with years of experience guiding in Northern California for trout and steelhead.

Gourmet dining has become a hallmark of the Clearwater Lodge experience. Our chef dazzles guests each evening with unique and creative menus. Locally sourced, high quality ingredients are used to create unique seasonal offerings with exceptional flavor and flair. Dessert is never less than a wow. After a day astream, you can look forward to excellent family style meals from a chef who understands that fishing builds hearty appetites. Special attention is given to accommodate those with dietary restrictions (please inform us of any allergies or ingredients to avoid upon making your reservation).
