California Sport Fishing

There are many reasons people like visiting California. The redwood forest, Hollywood and its walk of fame as well as the Golden Gate Bridge.  The weather and the miles of beaches are also a popular attraction. However, there is more to California than that. This is one of those places people easily miss unless they are interested in fishing. It is a hidden gem.

Sport fishing used to be done by a few, but now it is becoming more popular. Whether you are an amateur or a professional, California Sport Fishing has a lot to offer for all kinds of fishermen and women.

California has quite a few places that offer its visitors fishing opportunity. Its coastline stretches for 1100 miles, and the available ocean waters are inviting as well. Big game fishers will appreciate the 220000 square mileage of this blue paradise.

If ocean fishing is not your thing, there are lakes, reservoirs, streams and rivers that offer a different setting, but still, plenty of fish to catch. Almost any style of fishing is possible.

California Sport Fishing has offered for deep sea fishing lovers as well. Marlins, sailfish and other species that live just off the coast of California. Some great whites are spotted from time to time as well so you might be able to see a glimpse of these mighty beasts.

Fly fishing is another part of California Sport Fishing gaining popularity recently. There are more than a hundred different fly fishing sites to choose from depending on how far you want to travel. The Sierra Nevada is one of the places worth checking out. Different settings to suit different preferences. People who want to be on their own can also find less populated spots for an uninterrupted time while trying to catch the game.

Another unique place is the Owens River. It is well-known for trout fishing in California, and there is no other river quite like this in the whole state. It is also known as one of the best spots in the country.

Lake Shasta is known for its rainbow trout as well as the big brown trout. The supply is plentiful throughout the state, and you won’t find any better spots than in this sunny state.

If you want to plan a fishing holiday on your own or with a company, California is worth considering. Remember to book early, so you get the accommodation and the fishing charters because it is becoming more popular. Booking early means you can avoid disappointment further down the line.

A couple of things to remember is to dress appropriately for the kind of fishing you want to do. Take sunscreen and stay hydrated. Make sure you know where you are going and what catering options will be around you so once you start the holiday nothing can spoil it.

You will need a fishing licence, and you should look up any other rules and regulations there could be for this kind of activity. All in all, enjoy you and have a perfect time.
