Capt. Chuck Ragan

Favorite Fish:  Stripers, Bass & Steelhead

Home Water:  Sierra Foothill Lakes, Central Valley Rivers and the California Delta

Chuck grew up chasing fish throughout the Southeast from Texas to Florida. As a young man he moved to N.Florida, started a career in music and woodworking but when not at work, he’d be at Cedar Key or Shellmound chasing Redfish inshore of the Gulf of Mexico, offshore or hunting heavy bass and striper on Rodmans, St. Johns or The Suwannee. Ragan left the South for the West to marry & continued his career fishing Pacific waters.  Relocating to Grass Valley, CA. in 07, he fell in love with the waters of Northern California.  As a USCG Inland Captain and independent fly fishing guide, Ragan shares fun and joy in pursuit of many species on the Yuba, Feather and Sacramento Rivers, surrounding lakes and reservoirs and The California Delta. Ragan also guides for the non-profit organization Cast Hope http://www.casthope.org where he lives to see people shine and believes in sharing knowledge of the outdoors, fly fishing, teamwork, independent confidence and the importance of respect and conservation for all to carry and pass on themselves.
