Season: May 15 to December 31st





Fishing style and Depth

Drifting/Jigging in 10′-1000′

Rockfish inhabit rocky terrain from the shoreline to 1500′ depth. There are more than 100 species and many different shapes, sizes and color patterns. Colors vary from black and drab green to bright orange and red, and some rockfishes wear stripes or splotches. New CDFW regulation requires us to target rockfish in 300′ of depth from may 15th to July 15th. This area has not fished since the 1990s so the quality of fish collected during in the deeper waters will be much larger than typically harvested in shallower waters. Our Rock Fish Fishing typically peaks during the spring and fall.
