  • Highlands Community Club, 1665 Fernside Street, Redwood City, CA 94061

 

Andrew Harris has been guiding California waters since 1997 and formed Confluence Outfitters with partners in 2007.  Many PFF members know Andrew because we book trips with Confluence on the Trinity and Lower Sacramento Rivers.

Topic:  The Lower Sacramento River without a Bobber

You can catch fish on the Lower Sac on a variety of techniques that do not involve a big bobber and a ton of lead.  Andrew's presentation covers dry fly, dry/dropper, streamer, swing, spey and tight-line nymphing techniques plus wading access points for this prolific trout fishery.

Biography:

Andrew lives in Red Bluff, California with his wife Katie and daughters Mackenzie and Madison. Andrew puts the "Outfitter" in Confluence Outfitters, as he is the one who answers the phones and emails. Andrew really enjoys helping our guests plan their trips. Confluence Outfitters has a great group of guides and a bewildering array of venues in northern California, southern Oregon, and Washington. Andrew can help you select the right guide, destination, and time of year for your next fly fishing trip.

He is a USCG-licensed Captain which means he can operate a motorized boat in the inland waters of California. He puts this license to good use on the lower reaches of the Sacramento River where he uses his jet boat to fish for striped bass, trout, and steelhead. Andrew has been a pioneer of using lightweight spey rods for trout on the Lower Sac. Andrew's jet-boat Trout-Spey trips are very popular. Andrew also writes regularly for California Fly Fisher magazine and is the author of the Plumas National Forest Fishing Guide, a fly fishing guidebook to the Feather River Country. 

Andrew is also a software developer. He created LodgeRunner.com, a booking system designed for fishing and hunting lodges and outfitters. 

As always, members can join the speaker and other members at 5:30 pm for dinner and a beverage beforehand at City Pub, 2620 Broadway, Redwood City, CA 94063.
