January is Steelhead time on the America River.  Known as the "Jewel of Sacramento," the lower American River stretches from the basin of Nimbus Dam to the Sacramento River. Join us for two days of fly fishing for steelhead. We have reserved three drift boats that will accommodate two fly fishers per boat. The price includes two days of guided fishing, lunch and flies.   Contact Mike Brugh if you need additional information or need a two handed rod for this trip.
