General Meeting with Craig Nielsen

Craig Nielsen, Owner

Craig Nielsen is the owner and operator of Shasta Trout.  A Northern California native, he has been chasing trout with a fly rod of over 50 years and guiding professionally since 1992.  Having fished all across the west, B.C. and Alaska he especially appreciates the angling diversity Mt. Shasta offers. From presenting tiny dries to selective Fall River Rainbows, swinging streamers with switchrods for the Klamath's fabled steelhead, dry fly fishing on the McCloud or nymphing the Upper and Lower Sac for trophy 'bows, Craig enjoys it all.  Everyone appreciates his patience, angling versatility and local knowledge.  A certified casting instructor, he has taught at Mel Krieger's school and was one of the first authors on switchrods. Craig has been a featured guide for Flywater Travel, The Ashland Flyshop, Leland, Ted Fay, Fish First, The Clearwater House and The Flyshop.  He holds a Teaching Credential and a Master's degree from Chico State where he worked as an Instructor, Administrator and Counselor prior to following his passion to guide full time.
