Best Winter Fishing Destinations in California: California winter fishing hot spots that offer moderate temperatures, smaller crowds and the chance to get away and enjoy the great outdoors while you await warmer weather. Trinity River: Stretching from Lewiston Dam to the Klamath River at Weitchpec, the 110-mile long Trinity River is one of most well-known steelhead streams on the West Coast. This incredibly scenic river is known to average steelhead in the four- to eight-pound range. – Lower Sacramento River: Ideal spots include the 16-mile stretch between Redding and Anderson and the 30 miles of ideal fly fishing toward Red Bluff. – Southern California Lake: Lake Perris in Riverside County and Lake Casitas in Ventura County are two locations worth visiting from November to February, as it is a prime time of year to catch bass along with early spring. – Eastern Sierra: In Bishop County, the three miles south of the Pleasant Valley Reservoir on the downstream of the Owens River feature wild brown trout and plenty of rainbow trout for fly fishing enthusiasts in designated wild trout water. Other popular year-round spots include Hot Creek and Upper Owens River in Mono County, located in the high mountains near the beautiful Mammoth Lakes. – California Delta: In close proximity to Sacramento, Stockton and San Francisco, this 1,000-mile waterway is formed by the confluence of the Sacramento and San Joaquin rivers and lies east of the Suisun Bay in a truly unique location. – Pier Fishing: While the numbers of fish will be decreased, you'll still have a good chance to catch surfperch, pileperch, rubberlip, walleyes and maybe even a halibut. Inshore areas will probably be your best bet, as barred surfperch tend to congregate near the surf in large numbers from December to March. Larger halibut can sometimes be snagged near the pier too, though there won't be as many up for grabs.
