Welcome to Fishing the North Coast with Guide Kenny Priest

Kenny Priest operates Fishing the North Coast, a fishing guide service based out of Humboldt County specializing in salmon and steelhead. I offer guided fishing adventures in Northern California on the Klamath, Smith, Eel, and Van Duzen rivers. I hold a Merchant Mariner Credential from the United States Coast Guard (USGC) and I’m licensed by the California Department of Fish and Game. I am fully insured and bonded, and safety is always a top priority.

I am a North Coast Region Program Manager for the Nor-Cal Guides and Sportsmen’s Association (NCGASA.org) Please visit their website for more information.

I also write a weekly fishing column published every Thursday in the North Coast Journal. My fishing reports are also featured in the Friday edition of the USA Fishing Hotsheet, NorCal Fishing Reports and My Outdoor Buddy website. You can listen to my reports every Saturday on the radio during the Outdoor Show out of Sacramento with Bob Simms on KFBK 1530 am and iHeart Radio. I also appear on ESPN’s North Coast Game Night with JB Mathers at 1340 am out of Humboldt County once a month on Mondays starting at 4 pm. Click on my Recent Posts tab on the right of this page for weekly fishing reports.

I cover all things fishing for rivers, ocean, lagoons, and lakes in Humboldt and Del Norte County. You can reach me at (707) 496-8671 or kenny@fishingthenorthcoast.com if you have any questions.
