] Clearwater Lodge - Guided Fishing

Clearwater Lodge Guided Fishing

Guided fishing is a wise investment in both immediate satisfaction and in long-term skill building and success. Clearwater guides can focus on a particular fishery, on mastering specific skills, or just having a fun fishing day. In the course of that day, you may walk, wade, fish from a pram, a drift boat or our bass boat. You may fish dry flies on the PhD Flats of Hat Creek, go deep in the Pit River canyon for huge rainbows, cruise the crystal clear flats of Ajumawi Lava Springs State Park, or stalk small wild rainbow in the spring-fed flows of Burney or Lost Creek. Visit our Home Waters page to read about our guide destinations.

Morning half days start at 8am and end in the early afternoon. Afternoon half days start after lunch and end before the dinner hour.
