Capt. Fishin’ James Netzel

Expert Kokanee Fishing Guide

Tactics & Tackle Seminar



The Rooster Tails Fishing Club has invited Pro Fishing Guide, Captain Fishin’ James Netzel, owner of Tightlines Guide Service, for a special presentation on his tactics for fishing Stampede Reservoir Kokanee.  Arrive at 7:00 a.m., Friday, July 19st Rooster Tails breakfast meeting held at the Auburn Elks Lodge, 195 Pine Street at Lincoln Way, Auburn, 95603.  Reservations are not required, but breakfast attendees are encouraged to arrive early for close parking and good seminar seating.  Hot free coffee will be waiting for you to share and one-on-one conversations with James and  fellow Kokanee anglers.

Unlike the recreational fisherman, state licensed pro fishing guides like James are independent entrepreneurs that have invested thousands of dollars in their guide-boats, fishing electronics, tackle, and have spent virtually hundreds of hours perfecting their fish catching expertise.   James is no exception developing winning Kokanee strategies and sending his clients home on hundreds of limits.  This will be an informative presentation you don’t want to miss!

James has been fishing since he was able to hold a fishing rod and a pro fishing guide since 2012.  He specializes in Kokanee, King Salmon, Stripers, Trout, Land Locked King Salmon, and Mackinaw on waters including Stampede Reservoir, Folsom Lake, Sacramento River, Oroville Lake, Donner Lake, Lake Tahoe, and the Delta. His goal is to allow his clients to sit back and relax in his comfortable 23’ Rogue Chinook guide boat (which will be on display at the meeting).  James’ clients enjoy themselves while he does whatever it takes to create a fun fishing memory that will
ast a lifetime.  He provides all the top quality equipment on his comfortable guide boat that is equipped with the latest electronics, new rods/reels and species-specific tackle to provide a learning experience for both expert as well as novice anglers.

James is proud to hold something that is very important to remember and honor our veterans for the sacrifices they made for us. If you see James’ boat on the water flying an American flag, that means he has a veterans on board. Be sure to stop-by and say, “Thank you for your service,” to the veterans he is providing fishing guide service.  James is an active supporter of Purple Heart Anglers, a non-profit organization founded in 2009 to help aid in the healing of disabled veterans through fishing and hunting trips.  James provides a $50 discount to any military veteran for a guided fishing trip.
