Kayla was born on Oahu, Hawaii where she learned to stalk the flats for fish at a very young age. From that point on, she developed an intense passion for fishing and being on the water whether it be the ocean or rivers. Not only does she devote all of her time to pursuing her passion for fly fishing, she is also passionate about guiding and takes every opportunity she can to expand her clients fly fishing skills. Her easy going, fun, personality, combined with her professionalism and dedication to her clients makes Kayla a fantastic guide for both beginner and seasoned anglers. When she’s not guiding, she spends her time chasing fish and rowing her drift boat with her dog, Finley. Out on the water, Kayla values fun, learning, conservation, safety, and helping to create memories that will last an angler a lifetime.
Graduated from Chico State University with a BA in Liberal Studies followed with a California K-8 Teaching Credential. In other words, Kayla loves interacting with children and can teach your young ones how to fly fish and enjoy their time on the water!
Kayla joined the Clearwater Lodge crew in 2018, and is overly excited to share the experiences of fly fishing some of the BEST trout fisheries in Northern California with her clients! For more info., check out the Clearwater Lodge tab!
