Your thoughts drift off before the crackling of your campfire to the events of the day past. California, with its golden coastline and majestic mountains, appears to be a family hit for this year’s camping/fishing trip. One more day of Fishing Mammoth lakes lies before you, then on to coastal camping where you’ll break out the saltwater gear. With such diversity in nature within one state, you’re already planning next year’s trip for more fishing and camping in California.
California is a state where you can go surfing and snowboarding in the same day. With facts like that, the diversity of fishing and camping in California comes as no surprise. So many choices exist. Bass fishing is at its finest in the desert lakes of Southern California. Both spin reel and fly angler appreciate the camping that allow them access to trout in the Sierra Nevada Mountains. Clean air at high altitude and a fresh pine breeze can make a poor day of trout fishing seem like fun.
Divert your attention up to Northern California where you have the opportunity to fish salmon. Camping among the Redwoods can make you feel small, but catch a fiery steelhead and you’ll snap out of it. The smell of saltwater permeates the entire western length of California. From the Oregon state line down to the border of Mexico, some of the best fishing and camping in California happens on the coast. Surf fish for striped bass up north or perch, croaker, and corbina down south. They all taste good over your campsite’s fire while listening to waves crash on the beach.
