Some might argue that we have some of the best weather in country. Maybe thats why so many flock to the SF Bay Area? Depending on where you live in about a 70 mile radius of San Francisco, dictates what kind of climate your in or can expect.
From where I'm located in the South San Francisco Bay it's high 40s at night, high 50s sometimes 60s during the day, give or take almost all winter. So, we do have seasons and I like that part about living here. It's just not extreme. Fishing is year round in the salt and fresh water. Were in an El Nino year and every day is different right now with the weather and fishing.
With El Nino upon us we can hope for some great spring and summer fishing, and warmer ocean temps that often times follow in from southern waters during these cyclic years. The Sierra's to the east are loaded down with snow and that means great fishing in the high country from early summer thru the fall this year. It's nevber a given so we'll see how it plays out.
This past weekend I spent the day at the coast. Santa Cruz coast to be exact. Surf fishing on the beach for perch was tough. Only a couple of small fish before the tide change and swell ran me off. Ate lunch on the the pier and made a couple of casts for whatever would eat and I caught a few small Sand Dabs..A small flat fish in the sole or flounder family. Tasty in there own right, but these were small and released.
