Meeting Time & Place:
We typically meet our clients at their lodge or hotel at 8:30am.
We typically have our clients ride with us in our vehicles.
However, be prepared to follow us in your own vehicle.
While some fishing can be done from the bank without wearing waders or boots, most fishing on Burney Creek is wade fishing.
The wading is fairly challenging and we typically use wading staffs.
Multiple Fisheries in one Day:
Burney Creek is very close to several other fisheries, including Fall River, Hat Creek, Baum Lake, Cassel Forebay, and the Pit River.
It is very common for us to fish two or even three different fisheries in a full day.
Length of the Day:
Most full days conclude around 5:30pm.
Half days end around 1pm.
