    Since fish follow conditions and not borders The uniqueness of so cal is extreme regardless of borders..
    Moved to Hawaii as a teen and lived on the water and had 24 hour fishing opportunities....I desperately wanted to come home..
    Calicos,yellows,halibut,surf fishing,green bass,unreal harbor fishin,live bait and more including the best recreational fishing fleet in the world made me realize how lucky I was to live in a place that truly is fishing paradise...
    Tropical locales are nice and I went to a lot of places but IMO nothing compares to the FISHING that is unique to so cal...

    Orange Mouth Corvina.Imported but was a great fishery.
    Was a unique fish for Southern Ca. Tell the salt and fertilizer killed them off.

    Well aware of both of those. The op was looking for a fish caught in socal, but not mexico. Only one I could think of. Although they are caught in sd so they probably cross the border too.

    Couple of things I noticed in the posts. Several folks mentioned trout. Brown trout are native to the Danube River basin. Golden trout too as far south as the tehachapis. Steelhead are supposedly a unique subspecies all the other steelhead trout in California but just below point conception. All I can think of that is unique is the state saltwater fish the Garibaldi.

    Golden trout are also found in the Wind River range in Wyoming.
