Those looking for even more active adventure can get a unique insight into the Napa River waterway and wildlife with kayak fishing or chartered fly fishing. The Napa River and surrounding area offers a fantastic diversity of fishing opportunities. The primary species is resident and migratory striped bass that reach 6-10lbs. During the winter locals target prehistoric sturgeon best described by the music of local fisherman and artist Les Claypool (Primus - Fisherman Chronicles, Fish On!). No words.
Imagine beginning the day on a kayak in tidal wetlands of the Los Carneros champagne region, riding the incoming tide for a few hours or full day, peppering the shoreline with swimbaits or trolling rattle traps as tidal wetlands blend into the Napa River Valley. Ride comfortably with your beau + 1 child or dog aboard premium sit-on-top tandem kayaks from Crescent and the reassuring rhythm of your paddle breaking the surface of protected water.
Kayak and fly-fishing tours are safe for kids and pets. In addition to Crescent Cru Tandems we offer the complete gear line from Vibe fishing kayaks and a fleet of tandem, pedal drive fishing kayaks from South African supplier Bru. Our primary solo fishing vessel is the Vibe Cubera 120. Vibe Cubera 120 Hybrid
