"Great day on the river with Jon and I got a solid understanding of how to fish the area on my four day trip. Jon is patient for the beginner and commands all the knowledge an expert could demand in a Sierra flyfishing guide. Thank you again Jon."
-Nick, Orinda CA
"My wife was celebrating her birthday and she has not stopped talking about our flyfishing trip we had with Jon on the North Fork Yuba River. If she has told me once, she's told me a dozen times that being on the river with her family and Jon was the best birthday ever! Jon is an awesome guide and a great spirit"
-Scott, St. Helena CA
"Jon delivered the true fly fishing experience. I hooked up with Jon to learn about the Greagle area, an area of California that I had never fished. Jon really took the time to find out what I wanted from our day and guided me to a beautiful small Plumas County stream. Jon delivered a day that I will remember for years. Fishing with Jon was like fishing with an old buddy and as a bonus, I learned many new and tricks on ways to approach fly fishing. Thanks Jon and can't wait to get back out there with you and explore more of the Plumas area!"
- Raffi, American Canyon, CA
"I had the pleasure of fishing with Jon on Lake Davis recently for the first time. His equipment, knowledge, and manner were top-notch and his knowledge of the local waters he guides is unsurpassed. Despite tough conditions, he got us into fish with the right flies at the right time and we had a great morning of fishing"
-Craig, Chico CA
"My time with Jon on the Middle Fork of the Feather River was extremely enjoyable. He put me on to wild trout that were very picky, but his fly selection did the trick. I'm looking forward to my next trip to Graeagle and spending more time with Jon."
-Dick Seevers, Rocklin CA
"To Jon: Dude, I appreciate your skills and personality. That 17 inch brown trout battle was awesome! And who knew just minutes later I would drop a PMD on the head of a 20+ inch Bow! What a trip seeing that size of fish turn his head and sip that fly in gin clear water-an unbelievable rush! Thanks again for all your knowledge and a wonderful trip. As you know I've been from Panama to Alaska and New York to the White River in Arkansas several times. This trip on the Little Truckee River was easily one of my top trips ever. Can't wait to see what the fish think of this Missouri guy at Lake Davis."
-Ken Eberhardt from Missouri
"Jon Baiocchi is the 'fish whisperer'. He taught me everything about fly fishing...reading the water, fly placement, what to use...you name it. His flies are like fish candy. If you go fishing with Jon you will definitely be pleased"
-Jeff Wastell, Arvada CO
"My day on the Middle Fork Feather River with Jon was one of the best I've experienced. Prime water, solitude, and many wild trout to hand. His knowledge of the area, and aquatic insects were second to none. I plan on fishing with Jon again this summer"
-Chris Fukuchi, Denver CO
"Jon takes it to the next level"!
-Dave and Jackie, East Bay Area CA
"Great guides are born, not made. Jon is one of the finest flyfishing guides out there"
-Neil Rankin, West Palm Beach FL
"Jon, thought you might want to know - I went back to the North Fork of the Yuba yesterday. Fished in the same stretch during the heat of the day for 6 hours. About 100 hits and landed about 60 up to 14"! Not too shabby. Here's the best part, still using the foam I hopper I bought from you. It caught 75% of the fish. I still have it. I better sharpen the hook again for next time. thanks again, Jon!"
"Without the passion and participation from the 'teachers' of this sport it would surely fade some. Both you and Christine are very good for the sport of fly fishing. Great job!"
- Bill Kiene, owner of Kiene's Fly Shop
"I took up fly fishing in May of 2010 and went on one of my first guided trips with Jon Baiocchi on the wild and scenic Middle Fork of the Feather River. As a beginner he was very helpful teaching me how to read the river, turn over stones to look for bugs and how to fly fish pocket water. Since then I have practised and studied fly fishing and have become quite proficient at it. This last June I hired Jon to take me out in his boat on Lake Davis for a different style of fly fishing. It was fantastic, we had my 6 year old son with us and Jon was super patient with him and Jake had a blast too. This August I hired Jon to teach me how to fish on the North Fork of the Yuba. I had never been to that area of the Sierra's and it is one of the most beautiful watersheds I have ever seen. With Jon's instruction i caught at least 30 fish in two days! Ranging in size from 6 inches to 16 inches, it was amazing. He also taught me how to collect insects out of the river and pick the appropriate nymph or dry fly to match the hatch. Jon's knowledge and passion for fly fishing is outstanding and he is a pleasure to spend the day with!"
-Sig Wallen, Fairfax, CA
"Jon always puts me on the fish, cause I love the trout. If you hear a dog barking at Lake Davis, it's a sure bet that Jon and I have a hook-up"
"I am so jealous of Madison. Jonny B catches all the fish. The guy on the other end of my leash calls Jon all the time for the latest fly fishing info in Plumas County . Jon gives him the low down on locations, flies, timing, etc. I just want to run free and be a real trout dog. In the mean time I will learn more Stupid Pet Tricks"
