Nor-Cal Guides and Sportsmen's Association - Capt. James Stone

Travel with us on our audio journey from the headwaters of the Sacramento River and Shasta Resevoir, to the Delta as we discuss the state of our current and future fisheries with Captain James Stone.  James brings a wealth of knowledge that helped lay a solid foundation for the issues we face in our local Northern California watersheds.

James is the president of the Nor-Cal Guides and Sportsmen's Association (NCGASA) and a local fishing/hunting guide. The NCGASA is an organization that represents the “Sportsmens Voice” of Northern California. They have appointed regional program managers throughout California that represent the voice of anglers, hunters and guides within their region's community.
