    Big Bear, Arrowhead, Lake Perris, hour or so to the ocean. Big giant Basspro shop there. Maybe go by and ask for advice also.

    Need a California Fishing Liscense with an Ocean stamp if you are to fish ocean.
    Bass pro may have them if not try Turners Outdoor.

    About Forty plus dollars for a year

    You can't fish inside of BPS. Just a FYI. (-8


    Yucaipa regional park can be pretty good at times for cats/trout. Corona lake is fun for a quick fix too.

    How about surf fishing along the coast (Bolsa Chica, Doheny, San Clemente and lots of other areas.) Much more exciting and cooler than the shores of fresh water lakes in the summer out here. Take your freshwater gear and hit a tackle shop along the coast for some advice. Berkeley gulp sandworms on a carolina rig will get you action every day of the week. (Just my suggestion!)

    nice river fishing in azuza canyon. go to the east fork or to the west fork...hike down ..they plant trout on every other thrusday..the west fork has a nice walk way . i think after mile 2 or 3(past the fly fishing club) its barbless catch and release only.

    James, when you go to the bass shop ask about their club night meetings, they go out on trips all the time, off of jettys, party boats. If you can talk to a guy in the marine dept. his name is Big Mike. Good guy.

    I lived in ranho for the last 30 years or so. Stop by Kenny's on Mountain right below Arrow in Upland. they will have all the low down and should be very helpful with a true local knowledge of the area. You have Perris, diamond Valley Green Valley, Big Bear,and the ocean all within a hour drive give or take.

    Oh yeah if you are going to Basspro there is a restaraunt called the Hat on the way in. Stop by and have a Pastrami Sandwich. You'll thank me later.
