Striped Bass; American Shad; Trout; Steelhead

Hi, I'm Charlie Gonzales, growing up on the American River and surrounding waters for over thirty years has taught me what each season has to offer for the beginning and experienced fly fisherman. And now I am excited that I will have the opportunity to pass on the knowledge that I have gained in that time. I can guarantee that every time we are on the water, you will come away with a larger perspective on the "hows" and 'whys" of whatever species that you are after, and that you will have a great time while doing so.

A day on the water typically starts at day break and lasts for about ten hours, but evening trips can be arranged also.

I will provide a great lunch of your choice, drinks, snacks, some flies and lots of instruction. We will be fishing from my 16 foot Hyde low profile drift boat on the American, Yuba, and Feather Rivers for  striped bass, trout, steelhead and shad. Trips for O'Neill Forebay top water striped bass and largemouth bass are also available.

A full day of fishing is only $225.00 for a single angler, and only $325.00 for two on all the above rivers. Trips to O'Neill Forebay are only $375.00.

Steve Santucci Guide Service




For Striped bass on the California Delta, San Luis Reservoir and the Sacramento River


Steve Santucci has been fishing the California Delta and San Luis Reservoir steadily over the past 20 years.  He has caught many trophy size stripers over the past 2 decades including two line class world records on the fly.  Experienced in fish holding locations, moon phase, tides, and water conditions, he maximizes your chances for a great striper experience. Steve is now guiding on the Sacramento River in the Colusa area during the spring and early summer.

 Steve fishes out of a 20 North River.  The boat is wide and stable and has a walk-through windshield.  Equipped with plenty of horsepower to get to fishing spots quickly and comfortably, it also has GPS mapping, sonar, Hummingbird side-scanning, and a Minn Kota auto pilot electronic trolling motor.  The North River has a Yamaha 9.9 auxiliary motor and a full top for the wet days.  You can also enjoy a heater on cold, winter days.


Steve is fully licensed with the US Coast Guard and Department of Fish and Game, certified by the Red Cross for CPR and First Aid.
