Get Lost Fly Fishing – American River Fly Fishing Guide Services

Thanks for your interest in an experience with Get Lost Fly Fishing. My name is Travis Banks, owner and operator. Before you book a day on the river let me tell you a little bit about myself;

I’ve been a resident of the Sierra Nevada mountains and foothills for 25 years and have spent a massive amount of that that time hiking, exploring, and fishing its rivers and water systems. In that time I have come to learn how much fun and adventure is right in our backyard for enjoyment. Fly fishing is my passion, and it is my pleasure to take you into some of California’s most beautiful and historical country and put you into magnificent trout from the same waters gold was discovered in. I look forward to meeting you. Lets GET LOST and FIND FISH.

Our Mission

It is the goal of Get Lost Fly Fishing to offer clients an enjoyable adventure on the river through the facet of fly fishing. Clients will be exposed to one of California’s premiere rivers, and have the opportunity to catch fish in the same waters that sparked the Gold Rush.

Northern California offers some of the best fishing in the Sierra Nevadas.

While catching fish is never guaranteed, clients are guaranteed the opportunity to enjoy
the beautiful scenery that is the American river canyon, and be able to access the river via multiple trails. Clients will have the opportunity to engage in wildlife observation and animal and plant species identification.
