Big Daddy's Guide Service; providing light tackle angling adventures on the lakes of the northern sierras for more than 20 years. Morning charters will begin in the early morning hours on the scheduled date. Afternoon charters will begin approximately one hour after the morning charter ends. In order to provide you the most custom tailored trip, and because conditions can change, the exact meeting time and location will be confirmed about a week prior to your trip. Your morning charter can last up to 7 hours, until limits are achieved (if keeping fish), or you say "uncle". Afternoon charters are 3.5 hours. A 50% deposit secures your date with the balance due on or before the day of the charter. (See our Reservations page for our full booking policy) We accept Cash, Check and Credit Cards.
You Need To Bring
Groups with more that 6 people can be easily accommodated by adding additional boats and guides. Just contact us about putting together a custom charter for your group.
Need A Place To Stay?
Big Daddy's Guide Service works with lodges and campgrounds at all of the lakes. From a camp or RV site with a view to first class meals and accommodations, your lodging needs can be taken care of.
Our Customers Say It Best!........
Just a short note to let you know how much my daughter, son, and I enjoyed our day fishing Lake Almanor with you last Tuesday. It was a wonderful experience and you made it that way. Of course it wasn't bad that we caught some quality fish. The large 6+ pounder went on the B-B-Q, and the smaller ones were fried up in the pan for trout and eggs the next morning. All were thoroughly enjoyed! The two 4+ pounders, etc. are going in the smoker. Thanks again for a unique and wonderful fishing experience!! It was one of the highlights of the week on the Lake with the entire family.
Best, Glenn M."
Thanks for a great day of fishing. Your fishing expertise and knowledge of Lake Almanor made it possible for a super novice like me to catch fish.
