Fly-Fishing - The Fly Shop®

Fly-Fishing - The Fly Shop®

With several hundred miles of rivers, creeks, lakes, and streams within easy striking distance of the Gaia Hotel & Spa, it's not surprising that quite a bit of water is set aside as fly-fishing only or catch-and-release. The Fly Shop staff will custom-tailor the day according to your ability and interests, putting you on the best local water. To make a reservation, please call 800-669-3474.

Whiskeytown National Recreation Area

Whiskeytown Recreation Area

Whiskeytown Lake’s beautiful sapphire-blue waters, surrounded by mountain peaks, are perhaps the most prominent feature of the park. However, water-based recreation is only a small part of what the park has to offer. The 39,000 acres surrounding the lake hold four waterfalls, pristine mountain creeks, 70 miles of trails, and opportunities to explore the history of the California Gold Rush. (Insider’s tip: The Lake prohibits fast-moving watercraft, meaning that the water is usually quite peaceful!)
