Smith River

Alan's Guide Service

Enjoy a relaxing day fishing some of the most pristine rivers Northern California has to offer. Fishing these area waters will give you a chance to hook and land world class salmon and steelhead. You will also be able to witness some of the most beautiful scenery and wildlife in all of California. Bear, deer, osprey, bald eagles and blue heron are just some examples of the wildlife you will be able to photograph from the river. Along with the fishing, wildlife, and scenery, you will enjoy the comforts of a drift boat or jet boat, fully equipped and ready for a fun and relaxing day on the water.

Fishing The North Coast

Fishing the North Coast is a river fishing guide service based in Humboldt County. I also write a weekly fishing column published every Thursday in the print and online editions of the Eureka Times-Standard, listed on the Eureka Chamber of Commerce website and featured on NorCal Fishing Reports and My Outdoor Buddy website. I cover all the rivers and ocean fishing in Humboldt and Del Norte County.

Few things are more fun and relaxing than spending a day fishing out on the water. One of the best ways to enjoy a day (or days) of fishing is to embark on a guided fishing tour.

Ken Cunningham Guide Service has taken anglers of all experience levels on memorable fishing endeavors. We take our valued customers out on the beautiful waters of the Chetco River, Smith River, Klamath River and the Sacramento River, where they have the opportunity to catch salmon, steelhead and other species of fish in either a drift or jet boat. Novice and advanced anglers alike will enjoy our guided fishing tours, as we take the time to show beginners the basics and proper techniques, while providing experienced anglers with more sophisticated fishing tips.
