The “Sportsmen’s Voice” of Northern California

The Nor-Cal Guides and Sportsmen’s Association (NCGASA) is a 501 (c)(3) non-profit organization representing 3,800 members. Our organization is comprised of professional guides and sportsmen & sportswomen who have come together to protect our hunting and fishing opportunities in the North State. We work closely with other conservation and habitat organizations to preserve land and waterways in order for future generations to be able to hunt and fish. We actively lobby for hunting rights and advocate for our state to raise more fish.

The organization is comprised and operated by nine elected Board of Directors. The directors are elected to a three-year term. The term alternates between two guides and one sportsman or sportswoman every other year. A President, Vice-President, Secretary and Treasurer are appointed to the Executive Committee. Note: There will always be an equal number of sportsmen and professional guides on the Board.  The organization also appoints regional program managers (RPMs). These RPM managers represent NCGASA in their local community on any fisheries issues, wildlife issues, or to represent professional guides in their respective region.

Below are the sportsmen and women representing NCGASA.
