Bucks Lake usually opens for fishing around Mother’s Day weekend. Reese starts out the fishing season on Bucks Lake by fishing for Trophy Mackinaw (Lake Trout). Bucks Lake is definitely one of the best kept secrets for trophy Mack fishing in the State of California. Mackinaw run up to 25 lbs plus in this lake of the northern Sierra Nevada’s. It is always best to fish for these monsters right after the lake thaws, so book your trip early so you don’t miss out on all the fun. During this time of the year the trout and Kokanee fishing can be outstanding as well. Reese continues to fish for trout and Kokanee throughout the summer months and fall. Make sure you turn that family camping trip at one of the great camp grounds on Bucks Lake into a fishing trip you will never forget with Reese’s fish hunt. Camp ground pickup service is available so you don’t even have to drive your car during your vacation. Reese also works with several of the local mairnas and lodges in the area http://www.buckslakemarina.com/, http://www.buckslakeshore.com/, and www.ranchitomotel.com/. If you are looking for a motel or cabin to rent for the weekend or week, Reese can help point you in the right direction.
This has to be one of Reese’s favorite places to fish. When Antelope Lake thaws out in the spring, about a month or two before Bucks Lake, Reese travels to Antelope Lake where he provides fishing trips for the Eagle Lake strain Rainbow trout that call this lake home. Reese will continue to provide trips to this lake throughout the spring, summer, and fall. These hard fighting rainbow trout average between 1 and 3 pounds. 5 fish limits for everyone on the boat are not uncommon and these fish are some of the best eating fish around. The scenery and sounds of the waterfowl on this lake are worth the trip alone. Beautiful campgrounds surround this lake and Reese will provide a campground pickup service just as he does on Bucks Lake.
When Reese is no longer able to fish Bucks Lake or Antelope Lake due to weather, he turns his attention back to Lake Almanor for trophy Rainbows, Browns, and the occasional land locked King Salmon. Come fish with Reese as he teaches you some of his secrets on this hard to fish gem of the northern Sierra Neveda’s.
Lake Davis is a fantastic lake to fish. Located just north of the town of Portola and known for its trophy rainbows. People travel from all over to fish this famous lake. Reese runs trips on this lake when the weather allows in the early spring, summer, and fall. Lake Davis has some wonderful camp grounds, both on Forest Service land and on private land. Check out the Grizzly Store's web page at http://grizzlystore.portola-ca.com/ for their store and private camp ground.

"Fishing is a passion of mine that I love to share. Come experience the early morning sunrise coupled with fighting a trophy trout on light tackle. This experience can't be beat as you fish the lakes of northern California with family or friends. I promise you a great time and *success to the boat or your next trip is free."
Reese is a huge supporter of non-profit organizations and foundations. Each year Reese will donate a **set number of trips across northern California. Most of these trips are auctioned off to help with the conservation of our natural resources. If your organization is putting on an event, contact Reese to see if he has any more available trips.
