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 Pit River

Andrew has hundreds of Pit River guide trips under his belt. This remote freestone river is one of the state's most productive trout fisheries. Andrew's presentation covers the river from its source to its confluence with Lake Shasta. Andrew also discusses how the river has changed as a result of the Federal Hydroelectric Relicensing Process.

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.
