Sacramento Delta is one of the best places for sports fishing. From Salmon to Sturgeon, and many other species in between. We'll be seeking Striped Bass on this trip. 

Introducing the Hobie Kayak First Cast kayak fishing trip series brought to you by California Canoe & Kayak. First cast, first kayak fishing experience. CCK and Hobie Cat® Company want to create new fishing moments for anglers of all ages and skill levels in the new Hobie® First Cast program. Don't have a kayak? No problem! California Canoe & Kayak will provide each participant with a Hobie Mirage® kayak and an experienced kayak fishing guide to get you jumpstarted into kayak fishing. The best part of fishing on a Hobie Mirage? Your hands are free to tend to your line. Hobie's patented MirageDrive® system allows you to pedal your kayak instead of paddling it. If you have ever thought about fishing, crabbing, or diving from a kayak this is a fantastic opportunity to learn the basics from CCK's Kayak Fishing Team.

Additional $30 fee if you need us to provide fishing gear
