Tailwater Guide Service


Founded in 2007 by Gary MacFarland of Paradise, California, Tailwater Guide Service is a complete fly fishing service. We specialize in fishing the finest rivers and lakes that Northern California has to offer. The Lower Sacramento River, from Redding to above Red Bluff is best known for its native rainbow trout. The Feather River, which flows through downtown Oroville, is well known for its acrobatic steelhead trout, averaging from 2 to 12 pounds. Lake Almanor, near Chester, is a high altitude mountain lake which boasts some of the larger rainbow and brown trout in the area. And Bucks Lake, a seasonal fishery, features brook, brown, and rainbow trout that love to hit flies offered to them.

Licensed and bonded, California Department of Fish and Game.
