What Our Clients Say

Let our testimonials do the speaking! 

Being brand new to fly fishing didn't dissuade Joseph from taking us out on the Yuba for a of day fishing. Joe gave us plenty of instruction, staying patient with us the entire day. Our form and skill drastically improved from the morning to the afternoon and it would be needed for the hard day on the water. Joe put us in position throughout the entire trip to catch fish, providing the instruction we needed to be in the best position on each pass. Whether you're new to fly fishing like me, or an experience angler, Joe is a guide you want to share a boat with.

My father in law and I have gone out with Joe for a couple of trips and always had a great experience. He has given me a lot of tips to increase my fishing success with techniques and tactics. He is well equipped and makes sure that his clients are comfortable and taken care of. He knows where the fish are and how to catch them!

Let me start by saying I have changed my opinion on the use of a professional guide. Growing up in this part of California I thought I had a firm grasp on the techniques and strategies to catch most of our local fish. I was catching fish but I wasn't catching the quality or the amount of fish I did when I went out with Joe for the first time. Joe continuously put me on the fish all day long. I couldn't have had more fun. He knows his waters and he knows what needs to be done to land the trophy fish. I strongly recommend hiring Joe no matter your skill level. Diligent, Knowledgeable, Consistent with a great sense of humor. You want a guide that will consistently put you on the fish then you hire Joe Garza of J.A.G Fly Fishing. Thank you for your expertise and the great time on the water. I will be booking again soon.
