Craig Nielsen - Shasta Trout Guide Service

Our guest speaker this month is Craig Nielsen, the owner of Shasta Trout Guide Service, who will present a multimedia program "Best of the best in the shadow of Mt. Shasta” featuring Craig’s favorite seasons on the local rivers. Craig will share proven tactics, strategies and techniques refined by local guides on the rivers in the Shadow of Shasta including Hat Creek, the McCloud, Upper & Lower Sac, Pit, Klamath, Trinity & Fall Rivers which are renowned for their wild trout and steelhead.  The techniques and strategies described on these rivers are easily adopted on other rivers by unguided anglers.


Craig has been guiding professionally since 1992, is an FFF certified casting instructor, a frequent presenter at ISE and other fly fishing shows and holds a Master’s degree from Chico State where he worked as an Instructor, Administrator and Counselor before following his passion to guide full time.

Leader's Line


Despite the depths of these winter months, February promises some outstanding activities: Pete Koistinen has again arranged a fishout on the Lower Yuba with access through the private properties of UC Davis – it is limited to 14 people. Check the fish out schedule on our website, and contact Pete if you would like to attend.


GBF’s Fly Fishing 101 workshop is coming up on Feb 23 and 25, (Tues and Thurs evenings at the clubhouse). Targeted for novice fly anglers, it is conducted by master anglers and tyers, Jim Holmes and Steve Reems.


We also have scheduled a fascinating speaker for our next general meeting (Feb 11) Craig Nielsen who operates Shasta Trout Guide Services.


And finally, don’t forget the Annual Dinner which is only a few weeks away! It will be held on Saturday, March 5 at the Sunset Community Center in Rocklin. This event, our primary fund raiser for the entire year, sells out every year so, if you haven’t already gotten your ticket, don’t delay and either get one at the next club meeting on Feb. 11 or contact Mike Howes at
