Fly Fishing in Orange County

With so many different fishing grounds to explore, Southern California is a favorite among anglers of all skill levels. The fly fishing Orange County has in store might not be the first thing that comes to mind, but it is the reason you’ll want to stay a bit longer.
 
Whether you’d like to cast your line from the beach, in one of the bays, or offshore, there’s something for every fly rodder.
 

Freshwater Fly Fishing

If freshwater is your playground or choice, then check out Laguna Niguel Lake and Irvine Lake.Rainbow Trout will be your primary target in these waters. Trout from Laguna Niguel Lake are particularly responsive to stillwater nymphing and you can catch as many as 20–30 in one outing.
 

Saltwater Fly Fishing

Thrill-seeking fly fishermen  can explore many fishing opportunities in OC. You can stay on the white sandy beaches and target Corbina and Perch in the surf or get a vessel and hit the water.
 
Whether you set off on a kayak or a fishing boat, these productive waters will not disappoint. In areas near shore, you’ll be fishing around rock structures and kelp beds for Calico Bass, Bonito, and Barracuda (also known as the Kelp Slam).
 
If you decide to venture further off into the deep blue, Sharks come into play, and this is the ultimate fly fishing experience. Just imagine a Mako or a Blue Shark fighting you while you try to out-maneuver them – the adrenaline kicks in just from thinking about it! Even better, there are specialized fishing trips that can make this happen.
 
Get the most out of the fly fishing Orange County has, but not before you buy a valid fishing license and pack your most reliable fly fishing gear. Then, the fun can begin!

We went early in the morning and it was a very smooth trip. A little on the cooler side but that was fine. The sun came out at the end of our three hour trip.

Fishing can be hit and miss. Usually good fishing with a good captain, boat and waters. Have enjoyed good fishing for sculpin, red fish, and bass. Great harbor just larger to exit than others.

I think early morning fishing is the best. I suggest at least half a day. The sea was very calm, hardly any waves and easy to catch the fishes. If you go deeper into the sea, you should be able to catch much larger fishes.

Hit up captain conor, and book a full day. Half a day is definitely not enough time because it goes by quicker than you think.

Make sure to ask your captain what fish to expect or to let them know what fish you would like to Target so you are not disappointed or not expecting something else. We had fun because Capt let us know what was biting and we wanted to just catch fish. It's fun.

Learn the equipment you'll be using before you leave the dock. Don't try and figure out a complicated reel set up without asking questions first.
