David Carranza

David Carranza, owner/operator of TRUCHA Fly Fishing Guide Service, specializes in guiding on Crowley Lake, and various Eastern Sierra waters. David has been fishing in the Eastern Sierra since early childhood. He is an accomplished fly fisherman, with extensive knowledge and experience fishing Crowley Lake dating back to 1998. He typically resides at the lake full-time from May to the end of October, and fishes the lake extensively. David has taught countless anglers how to fly fish, many who were first timers fishing with a fly rod. He believes that fly fishing is not as difficult as most tend to believe, therefore welcomes all levels of experience from first timers and novices to women, children and skilled anglers.

David’s commitment to his guide service is stated in his own words as follows, “I will employ all my knowledge and experience developed through past years of fishing Crowley Lake to bring you the excitement and rush of the fish bite (aka as “The Grab”), the fight, landing of fish to the net, and ultimately, accomplish that Kodak moment! Most importantly, I’ll bring my passion, excitement and enthusiasm. I will introduce you to the mechanics of the fly fishing rod and reel and guide you along for an exciting and memorable
