Break Water Tours (Jason Grupp), CA

Overview

My passion for the sport has given me the confidence and desire to start this business. Every year that passes, the expectations of my clientele reaches higher levels requiring the development of new and exciting trips. I have specialized in teaching fishing to my clients at many different skill levels since 1996. I give fly-fishing lessons and guided trips year round to help novice and expert anglers learn the sport. I work with countless guests to develop their skill level year after year to give them the confidence to take world-class fishing trips. I will guide you through local fishing opportunities or discuss with you how to travel to amazing fishing destinations.

There are many different trips you can decide to take with Break Water Tours. There are freshwater and saltwater trips available year-round. We can fish the lake for smallmouth and largemouth bass from my Triton boat. If we decide to hit the beach for a surf-fishing trip, we will be wading in the surf. Trunks or waders will get the job done, depending on the season. I will discuss the proper attire during the booking process to ensure your comfort and safety.

Typical Weather by Season

It's California! I am a full-time guide 12 months of the year. The weather here is great for the majority of the year. Mornings can be chilly on the lake or beach, but usually warms up nicely for most of the day. We do experience some rainfall in the winter months. Please discuss the current conditions with your guide when booking your trip.
