About Napa Valley Fly Guides
We offer half-day and full-day guided fly-fishing trips to Putah Creek--just 25 miles from downtown Napa-- to fish for wild Rainbow Trout! We also can guide on other rivers if requested by the client. We provide all gear: waders and boots, fly rods & reels, etc.; and any requested drinks for the day. Full-days come with a deli lunch as well. Richard and our other guides have many years experience with fly-fishing on Northern California rivers; and will bring clients to the best fishing spots and assist them with catching fish. It's a beautiful and serene getaway from the busy-ness of everyday life.

Rich took the time to teach us the basics and showed us the tips and tricks to be successful. Was a great day on the water, would highly recommend going out with Richard for a day of fishing.

For my birthday, I was treated to a half-day outing with Napa Valley Fly Guides, with Richard guiding our trip. I really had a great time! He took the time to give us some basic fly-fishing instruction. Our fishing site involved a small hike, including a short stream crossing in waist-high water. Richard helped us navigate the current, and nobody got wet! Once we arrived at the fishing location, Richard showed us how/where to fish, and what techniques to use. He did a great job handling all the rigging, and assisted in lading fish as we caught them. Napa Valley Fly Guides provided all required equipment. All we had to do was purchase a 1-day fishing license and show up. Richard was super friendly, knowledgeable, and really provided a fun experience! I would recommend this for anyone looking for a fun outdoors activity. I don't think any prior fishing experience is really necessary. We had such a great time, we'll be booking another trip.

Went on a half day yesterday with Richard and it was well worth it. He has so much info to give to someone like me who is still learning how to fly fish. I recommend using his skill to guide you around the Napa area.

My friend and I had an amazing time. We are both pretty inexperienced fly fishers. Richard was super patient teaching us and we ended up catching a few trout. Would highly recommend him as a guide for anyone in the Napa/Sonoma area.

Richard provided a great day of fly fishing for my husband and adult daughter. They both caught several beautiful trout. He extended the day at no extra cost and went out of his way to both drive and return them to a meeting place in Napa. Sarah made all the arrangements easy and stayed in touch throughout the scheduling process. We would highly recommend Richard for a great day of fishing!
