Christophel's Guide Service providing you the expertise to get you hooked up!

Marc is the only lake guide who lives in Truckee, which gives him an advantage and ability to constantly monitor and fish the lakes in which he books trips on.  He keeps connected with what and where the best bite is throughout the year.  Since he calls Truckee home, these lakes are truly his back yard and his experience shows to the time he has spent fishing them.  He has always had a passion for fishing, and learned at a young age to be diligent and patient to learn the habits of the fish he is going for, and thus has led to his success.  His success rates for putting fish on board always given his customers a trip they can remember.  Marc enjoys to not only put fish on for his customers, but likes to educate them so they become more familiar with the area lakes and are able to reproduce the results on their boats as well. Marc is well versed and up to date on the habits of the area fish, colors and lures to catch them.  Most of all, Marc is committed to working hard to give you and your family or friends a trip they will truly remember.


 With safety as our first priority, Marc is certified by the National CPR Foundation for CPR and First Aid.  In addition to our extensive experience on the water, Marc has completed and passed the Boating Safety Course provided by Boat U.S. that is approved by the NASBLA and recognized by the U.S. Coast Guard.
