Well there is plenty of ocean for you to fish if your interested in fly fishing for perch or maybe leopard shark. There is Morro bay area and Pismo and Avila beach. Just drive up the coast and check things out in your DFG fishing reg book and you will find plenty. As far as lake and streams I don't know too well maybe Lake Nacimieno? Good luck and enjoy the area its a great spot to fish hunt and ride a motorcycle. :signs1180lq:

Get your float tube and head to Lake Nacimiento on the FULL MOON in March and April. The white bass will be spawning. But they don't really get active until the water temp reaches 57-59 degrees in the morning and over 60 degrees in the afternoon. It is GREAT fun. It is the best place to fish down there by far. If I get my bassboat big motor fixed by then, I'll drop 'ya an email and you can tag along when we go. 40 to 100 bass days are a reality during the pre-spawn. We go to "the narrows", where the feeder stream comes into the lake. You can fish from shore there, if you can find a way down. The white bass are cousins of the striped bass, and they eat threadfin shad. Any baitfish imitation like Clouser minnows, or SST fly works great. You need a full floater and shooting heads. There are lots of spotted bass too. It is WORTH playing hooky from work at that time of year!
