SalmonSacRiver.com is comprised of two premiere Northern California Guides whose expertise and knowledge allow for an amazing experience.

Mike Rasmussen

Mike has called Northern California home his whole life. Fishing the streams of the eastern sierras for trout and the Russian river for steelhead as a young boy, his passion for fishing and the outdoors consumed his childhood as knowledge was gained. Attending high school in Corning, Ca, Mike also spent a great deal of time on the banks of the Sacramento river, chasing Salmon, Steelhead, American Shad and Striped Bass. Mike was fortunate enough to have been taught by some experienced guides that have since passed. Now a guide himself over the last decade, he prides himself on providing a comfortable, fun and enjoyable experience for all those he guides. You will not find another guide in Northern California as devoted as Mike and that spends the amount of time on the water as he does. It definitely shows at the end of the day when the fish are counted.

John Pearl

John also has resided in the Northern California area his entire life. He grew up fishing Clear Lake every second available to him, starting from childhood to present day. John has an unmatched knowledge of the lake through all the seasons of the year. Over the past decade, he has used his experience on the water to master the salmon and striped bass fishing on the Sacramento River, from Redding to Verona, Ca. The nicest guy you will ever meet on the water, John offers an unforgettable and knowledgeable experience when guiding either the Sacramento River or at home in Lake County. John will always be one of the top producing guides, on any occasion, on any body of water.
