If you’d like to cast your line away from the crowds, Sausalito is the perfect fishing destination. Nestled on the Richardson Bay, and just a stone’s throw from San Francisco Bay, this town is an anglers’ haven. Whether you prefer fishing from shore or reeling in your catch from a boat, there are plenty of Sausalito fishing charters to take you to your trophy catch.
This area is the playground of an array of popular species, including Chinook Salmon, Halibut, Lingcod, and even Albacore Tuna if you head to the offshore waters. You could also encounter Leopard Sharks and Rays, but know that when you get one of those on your line, you need to bring your A-game!
Anglers looking to mix things up can also go after Striped Bass and the prehistoric monster that is White Sturgeon. The waters of this area are brimming with trophy catches, and each of them will test your fishing skills and resolve in a different, exciting way.
Whether you’re in the mood to go on a Chinook hunt or you’d rather spend some time bottom fishing for “chicken” Halibut, there’ll be a guide to take you out. Take your pick between half day and full day trips, depending on how much time you have and how many fish you’d like to catch. Leave everything else in the hands of your trusty captain.
Fort Baker is one of the most productive fishing spots in Sausalito. When you book a trip with a Sausalito fishing charter, you’ll probably meet them here. Then, your fishing escapades can begin!
