    Sugar Creek May 14 - 16 - Sugar Creek Ranch property’s unique 114 acre landscape was dug up from the adjacent Scott River during the gold mining days.  This cold, gin-clear water provides ideal habitat for the large rainbow trout that call these lakes home.  Sugar Creek itself winds through the property.  Set at 3,000 feet, the ranch remains relatively cool in the summer and the climate and fishing is simply majestic during the spring.  Sugar Creek Ranch is located at the confluence of Sugar Creek and the Scott River in the Scott Valley of Northern California's Siskiyou County.  Private water--about $150 p.p. per day.  If interested, email us at

    • Wild Horse Reserve

    Wild Horse Reserve May 18-20 - This is a guided trip from Rob Anderson and Chris Evison.  Eastern Nevada has some of the most prolific Stillwater Fisheries in the West. Most of them are still relatively unknown and have very little fishing pressure. The outing costs $225 per angler for a 2 ½ day experience covering Stillwater techniques, proper rigging, and shoreline wading as well as float tube, pontoon boat and small pram techniques.  There will be lots of free time to practice and catch some big trout and bass.  If interested, email us at

    About our Program:  Ever wonder why other anglers around you are consistently catching fish?  Let me help you and share my philosophy and tactics that will help you become a better and more consistent angler.  I have been aggressively fishing and guiding one of the toughest and technical stillwaters we have in the West and want to share this knowledge with you.  I will show you my leader setups, types of fly rods and reels, fly lines, fly patterns and the chironomid life cycle.  I will share and make sure you always will know how and when to put your fly patterns at the proper depth.  Depth, color, and size of your flies in that order are the most important aspect of learning how to fish chironomids successfully.  Let me share with you my secrets of success from thousands of hours on the water and help build your confidence so you can have great success on the water using my chironomid fly fishing tactics.             

    About Ernie:  Ernie Gulley was born in Southern California and started fishing with his father as soon as he could walk.  At age seven, Ernie and his family moved to New Orleans where he learned how to fish Lake Pontchartrain for speckled trout and other saltwater species.  Later he moved back to SoCal and began fishing Lake Crowley, Bridgeport Reservoir and many lakes in Utah, Idaho, and Nevada. 

    In 1997 Ernie’s curiosity about fly fishing took off.  Ernie was mentored by Bob Slamal, one of Ernie’s legends in the fly fishing industry, and he also joined many local fly fishing clubs to learn as much as he could about fly fishing. 

    Ernie is currently a professional fly fishing guide in southern California and the eastern Sierra is one of the Sierra’s premier stillwater guides.  Even when he is finished guiding for the day, you will find him back out on the water until sunset; exploring, testing, observing, analyzing, and putting in the extra time and effort to master his craft.  His philosophy is simple:  you can always learn something new every time you are on the water.

    Ernie currently resides in Riverside with his wife Shannon and sons Logan and Aidan 13.

    You can learn more about Ernie and his guiding at and on Instagram, Twitter and Facebook.
