I’ve known Kirk Portocarerro for more than a decade, and he’s one of the most fun and productive guides I’ve ever fished and hunted with…if you’re looking for a great family outing, want to entertain your clients or simply want to fish with your buddies and enjoy a great day on the river or lake, Kirk Portocarerro is your man…you won’t be disappointed.”

Thank you so much for posting my picture with my gorgeous fish. My friends & family were quite impressed!! They think I’m a Star!!
Bob & I sure enjoyed our time with you, fishing, relaxing & sharing stories. It was so much fun pulling in those nine fish, BUT, when the
big one hit, what a THRILL !! I have bragging rights forever. Poor Bob, no one believes his story that his big fish got away. But he was
happy for me. And for dinner that night we sure enjoyed our fresh fish dinner. It was delicious!!
Thanks again for making our first trip to Shasta so enjoyable!! What beautiful country. We hope to get back there again.
Sincerely, Judy & Bob Clatterbuck - 2012

We had a great time fishing the Sacramento River for Salmon .  I had 3 clients on board that had never fished before. Kirk took the time to explain to them on what to expect and how to react to the fish.  After the quick chat they were all smiles and  ready to fish.  At the end of the day we all caught limits of very nice  Salmon, one of them was over 30lbs.   I will not fish the river with any other guide.

Hi Kirk...
Just wanted to say a quick thank you for your support on the river over the past few seasons. You have always had a positive attitude and are friendly and courteous to everyone on the river. Also, thank you for your updated reports online.   Thanks again and hope to see you on the river a few more times before school starts up mid August. Take care...  Fred N. JR

My husband was listening when I hinted that I really want to learn how to fish and would love to go on a guided fishing trip. The last fish I’d caught was when I was a kid forty years ago—a lake perch maybe 6 inches long. As a birthday surprise, he took me to Corning California, 90 minutes north of our home in Sacramento. Why, I wondered? At dinner, he handed me an envelope containing two fishing licenses. We went salmon fishing the next morning and had a fantastic experience. Kenny was a wonderful guide—very personable, knowledgeable, and professional. An hour or two after starting out that morning, I caught in a 20 pound salmon. What an unbelievable feeling! Together with the salmon my husband brought in, I figure we earned back 2/3 of the fee in King Salmon filets which usually cost $20 lb at our favorite fish market. Thank you for a such a great time. Can’t wait to come back.   Abby and Irwin Rosenblum



Jonathan and I had a great time fishing last with Pro Guide Justin. My son landed 3 and me 1 so he had a great time. We limited out by 9:45

Attached is proof positive of a great outing with your Team. You guys provide a great service and we look forward to our next outing.
Thank you again.
Jon Nakagawa, CPA

We had a unbelievably great time with Justin, He is nothing short of being the, Best Guide Ever, A Perfect Captain, A All Around Good Guy, A Excellent Teacher to my 12 yr old daughter Martina (who buy the way out fished, my father, my self, and The Best Guide Ever, Justin) She caught twice as many fish as us three guys put together? Anyway, your son must be your pride and joy, and the best asset a company could ever have, he was flawless, we loved him, THANK YOU KIRK AND LISA for a great day from 3 generations of our fishing family, if I missed any praising? Well you all get that to! We now know why you all are at the top of the Guide Chain on the Sac. river...thank you, thank you, and thank you!
Your friends, Jerry, Steve and our #1 Martina, aka The Smith's. of Bethel Island, CA & Gig Harbor, WA 2013

        We had the time of our lives last Sunday with Guide Justin! He took us to all his favorite spots on the Sac., hooked us up with some big Salmon,
and was a super nice guy to boot. My wife and I can't wait to get back out with you guys again real soon.
Thanks for all your help.

If there is one thing that I have learned when booking fishing and hunting excursions, it is that you can always expect the unexpected. I booked a trip to fish for Striped Bass on the Sacramento River with Kirk and Lisa and made the reservation about 4 months in advanced. It was a Christmas and Birthday gift for my brother Gabe, and as we got closer to the date (April 14, 15) it became apparent that my plans to fly out to California from Minneapolis to go fishing were going to be ruined by weather. Five days of continuous rain and hail storms completely blew out the river, making it impossible to catch Stripers. It is in these moments when you can tell what a REAL guide service is made of. Kirk decided to take us trout and salmon fishing on Lake Shasta, and he even recommended that I bring my camo and we could try and get after some Gobblers, as well. We caught fish, had a fantastic time doing it, and we even managed to call in a long beard for me to take a shot at…I didn’t leave empty handed. It was a memorable trip and in the words of one famous Governor of the State of California, “I’ll be back!”

I 've fished a lot of places- from Alaska to Mazatlan, and this is without a doubt, one of the best run fishing experiences I've ever had! Thanks, Kirk and Lisa, for a wonderful time and great hospitality! See you next year.
Bob Hartsook - Phoenix,  Arizona 
Kirk and Lisa, as always the trip is well worth it . Thanks for sharing your family and hospitality. We will be flying up again next year. It's been wonderful. We love you guys!
Bill and Alla Allen, Beaumont, Texas  
Thanks for the supreme accommodations. You, both, run the classiest outfit on and off the river. I look forward to my yearly trip. Thanks again.
Maurice Goni, California   
Another great day on the river! Always look forward to coming down for a trip. Thanks for all the hard work you do to make us successful.

This is our ninth year in a row, and its as great as the first.

Kirk and Lisa, The cottage is a fisherman's paradise. Nice and cozy. Sandy and I had a great time fly-fishing for the first time ever and were amazed that a few lesson's from Kirk, could produce so many quality sized wild Rainbows. Thanks, for a well satisfied trip.

Best Guide on the river, 6 years straight !

Lisa and Kirk are two of life's finest! Thank you for another great fishing experience, this place rocks!

My son and I caught many trophy rainbows and then relaxed, comfortably in the most pleasant guest house. Couldn't have been a more rewarding trip.
