California is a great place to fish!

We've just launched our improved Fishing Guide to help you plan your fishing activities! It's faster, has a much improved map interface, and provides more information.

In it, you will find:

  • Locations where fish are being planted for fishing by CDFW
  • Historically good locations to fish
  • Quagga mussel infested waters

Over the coming year or so, we hope to also include License Sales locations, Fishing Regulations, Boat Facilities, and more!

If there is something you think we should include, please let us know.
