I am a 27 year fishing guide on Lake Tahoe CA. I am 5th Generation Lake Tahoe and have fished the Lake since I could walk. I am Mercury Pro Team, KingFisher Pro Staff, Pure Fishing Pro Staff, Rapala VIP, Gone Fishin Marine Pro Staff. These are credentials for a guide that are very rare for a guide. I have commercial fished in Northern California as well put myself through College both Commercial Fishing and Guide Fishing. I consider myself a very lucky man. My greatest joy is not only stewarding this incredible place I call home, but getting people on some of the largest fresh water fish they will catch.
