The Story

Enlist the services of Orvis-endorsed guide Colin Coogan at Coogan Fly Fishing on your trip to Northern California: “Over the course of my career as a professional fishing guide, I have had the pleasure of guiding people in some of the world’s best trout and steelhead fisheries in California and Montana. Through my years of teaching and guiding in a variety of water types, I have developed the necessary skills and techniques to help my clients target and catch fish in the most effective ways. It is my goal to provide each client with a top-notch experience, whether we are rock hopping on one of Northern California's freestone rivers or floating down a scenic tailwater. You will have the experience of a lifetime.”

Guided trips include the use of quality Orvis fly rods and reels. Full-day guided trips include lunch and beverages. Typical half-days last 4–5 hours on the water, while a full day will be 8 hours on the water. If you are staying at a local hotel or lodging, a pick-up can be arranged. Start and end times depend on the season you will be fishing.

Colin Coogan is an Orvis-Endorsed fly-fishing guide service based out of Northern California. We guide on The McCloud River, Hat Creek, Upper Sacramento River, Lower Sacramento River, Feather River, Yuba River, Trinity River, Fall River, and Northern Sierra Mountain small streams and lakes.
