Fishing Northern Sierra Waters
with Jon Baiocchi
Jon’s presentation will focus on Northern Sierra waters, including the North Fork of the Yuba River, the Middle Fork of the Feather River, and Lake Davis. Jon has been fly fishing and tying flies since 1972, and is a California licensed fly fishing guide, published author, educator, and innovative tier. Jon owns and operates Baiocchi’s Troutfitters guide service, from which he has guided for the last 20 years. Locations he guides include Frenchman’s Reservoir, The Big & Little Truckee Rivers, The Lower Yuba River, and many secluded creeks in Eastern Plumas County, as well as the North Fork of the Yuba, Lake Davis, and the wild and scenic Middle Fork Feather River,
Born in San Jose, Calif., in 1965, his Dad moved the entire family to Paradise, Calif., during 1967 to be closer to prime fly fishing venues and to raise his family in the spectacular Northern California forests. Jon’s Dad, Bob Baiocchi, was inducted into the Federation of Fly Fishers Hall of Fame during 1999 and was a major influence in helping Jon hone his fly fishing skills at a very young age.
After finishing high school, Jon opted out of college to pursue a career as a professional snowboarder, competing at a national level, starring in feature movies, and working with manufacturers in research and development. After his career ended in 1993, Jon focused entirely on fly fishing and conservation, and learning even more of the intricate details of his home waters. Jon serves on the Truckee Trout Unlimited Board of Directors and volunteers his time with the South Yuba River Citizens League.
