About the crystal basin experience

I have been fishing the waters of the Crystal Basin and surrounding lakes and rivers of the Sierra Nevada mountains, foothills and Sacramento valley since the age of 4. That gives me over 30 years of fishing knowledge and experience to share with you. You will have the opportunity to fish out of our 2007 21' North River boat outfitted with a 350 PFI Vortex engine matched to a Hamilton 212 Jet, Minn-Kota trolling motor, Lowarance electronics, Scotty electric down riggers, Lamiglas and Fenwick rods, Abu Garcia reels, and of course our latest tackle along with other top brands of gear. And for your safety we have Class I life jackets on board (children 12 and under must have a life jacket on at all times while on the boat)

You, your friends, and family can chose to enjoy a trip to chase trout, kokanee, and mackinaw on many of the lakes that we fish like Ice House, Union Valley, Loon Lake, Lake Pardee, and Lake Berryessa. We can also help direct you to places to stay and eat near some of the lakes. This will make a trip all the more enjoyable and easier if your making the trip from a longer distance or if you just want to make it an extra day vacation. The Crystal Basin Is also close to Apple Hill, and El Dorado County wine country. Think of booking a trip on the lake one day and then stay over and tour the wine country before you head back home. What ever your plans may be we will do our best to make your vacation a relaxing and enjoyable one to remember.
