My Fish Story My name is Jeff Gonzales, Owner and Guide for NorCal Fish & Fowl Guide Service. Born and raised in Northern California, I have been providing professionally guided hunting and fishing trips since 1996. My father introduced me to hunting and fishing at an early age and it didn’t take long for the passion to turn into an obsession. Growing up hunting and fishing kept me focused enough to stay on track to make great career choices. In addition to Guiding, I spent 30 years as a professional Firefighter. Why choose NorCal Fish & Fowl Guide Service? I have always been a firm believer in the old adage, “you get what you pay for”. I know it is a cliché however, when you hire NorCal Fish & Fowl Guide Service you can rest assured that you will be fishing out of a 22’ North River Jet boat that is always clean and orderly. All of the equipment that you will be using is top of the line because my guests deserve nothing less.
Most fishermen can catch fish when the sun is shining and conditions are perfect. The difference between others and me is that when Mother Nature throws a curve ball into the mix, I have the skills and expertise to adapt and overcome whatever she tosses my way! When water levels, temperature and barometric pressure change whether on the Sacramento River, Yuba River or Feather River, fish react radically different. With over 30 years on the river, what sets me apart from others is that I have consistently produced successful trips for my guests by relying on my cumulative knowledge of the river and diverse fish habits. You will always get honest answers and 100% effort from me and that is GUARANTEED!
Word of mouth and repeat guests have made my business what it is today, a dream come true. My success is measured not just by the fish that are caught but by the lifetime of memories spent catching them. I look forward to seeing you soon on your next salmon fishing, steelhead fishing, trout fishing, striper fishing, bass fishing, sturgeon fishing or trout fishing adventure!
