Sam grew up just outside of Redding in Round Mountain, California. With the luxury of having several Blue Ribbon trout streams in his backyard, he learned to fly fish on the infamous Pit River. Known for its treacherous wading and hard fighting rainbows, this freestone river formed the foundation for his future as a guide.

In 2013, Sam attended the Confluence Outfitters Fly Fishing Guide School. After graduating the program, Sam realized he wanted to devote his life to understanding and mastering the art of fly fishing.

During the winter months of 2014 and 2015, Sam was the host at Eagle Canyon Trophy Trout Lakes near Red Bluff, California. You can find him there again this season assisting clients to hook into fish. Sam spent the summer of 2015 guiding in Alaska for Dierick's Tsiu River Lodge. This Orvis-endorsed lodge is one of the premiere Silver Salmon and fishing destinations in the world. Bringing his Nor-Cal-Steelhead style of guiding to remote Alaska, Sam worked tirelessly to get his clients into fish.

Sam lives in Redding and specializes in pursuing steelhead and trout on the Lower & Upper Sac, Trinity & Pit Rivers. He is available for full and half day wade or drift boat trips. Regardless of ability, Sam will cater to your skillset and style of fishing and loves sharing the moment with his clients when they hook into fish.

Recent Fishing Reports by Sam Robinett

3/25/17 by Sam Robinett: Had perfect weather yesterday at Eagle Canyon for some fun stillwater action. Morning was a bit slow but things picked up once we got a little chop on the water. Streamers, nymphs and midges worked best for us both stripping and under an indicator.  Conditions at the lake are great right now with hatches going on throughout the day to keep you busy. 
3/14/17 by Sam Robinett: The steelhead season on the Trinity is still going on believe it or not with minimal pressure. The river is in great shape actually; flows and water clarity are ripe but it's been tough. With limited opportunities it's essential to be quick at those hooks-sets and never assume it's a rock! I feel like Paul Ryan with his sleeves rolled up when I start posting river flow charts, nonetheless the lower Sac is starting to settle down. With these higher flows it opens up a lot new water and opportunities to catch fish.  Tight lines. Sam R. (530)722-5994
3/3/17 by Sam Robinett: Had the pleasure of guiding Dave from Napa on the Trinity. Despite being on the slow side, Dave landed a wild adult. The weather has been all over the place lately so dress accordingly!
