Fishing lodges in California are usually located in Northern California and in the far reaches of the Sierra mountains. Cabin rentals on a river or overlooking a lake, California has a scenic destination awaiting any preplanning vacationer. California resorts can be located in rural wilderness areas or in river canyons, on alpine lakes or near mountain peaks. Fly fishing guides can lead to epic spots and big catch days, but it will cost some cash. Venturing out solo to experience the solitude on your own private creek is always a highly sought after morning.
