Hi – I’m Your Guide, Travis Ortiz. Let me introduce myself.
I am ‘Cal Fly Guy’. Offering fly-fishing trips in the Northern California area including the Trinity River, Lower Sacramento River, McCloud River, and Hat Creek. These rivers offer fly fishing experiences of a lifetime! My guests routinely find Rainbow Trout, Brown Trout, Steelhead, and even Salmon in select waters.
Do you like to wade? Fish from a boat? I have you covered! The fishing I have come to know, all found on these beautiful rivers, is what I can share with you. I’ve traveled far and wide. Today I know of no better way to experience nature than on a river with a fly rod in hand. I look forward to sharing the wonders of the fly fishing craft with you.
Sharing my passion and love of fly-fishing is more than just being on the water and catching fish, it’s about being one with natural surroundings, and connecting to that greater level of awareness that nature delivers. Teaching and enlightening others on the many different aspects of fly-fishing is my purpose and incidental to our day on the water.
Do you want to learn about insect hatches? How fish feed on insects? How about reading the water? I teach all aspects of fly-fishing including, but not limited to, indicator fishing, dry fly fishing, techniques in spay casting. From beginning anglers who have never held a fly rod to the seasoned angler looking to find new hot spots on the river, I have you covered. Where ever you may be on your journey of life as a fly fisher, my goal is to expand your knowledge, inspire and develop a long relationship shared on the waters I love.
