Spring surf fly fishing in Southern California has many options. San Diego's beaches are too cool for the beach crowd yet so most beaches have miles of solitude for the adventurous angler seeking solace.

Saltwater style 6wt and 7wt rods, a shooting head and stripping basket give the essentials to ply these waters. Anglers can expect to find barred surf perch, corbina, spot fin croaker, halibut and yellow fin croaker all within one stretch of beach.

Since sand crabs are just starting to show up these species will be concentrated and easier to target. Try a Piconi's prowler or beach bug in orange and hold on tight........

Surf Fly Fishing: Little Neck Bay 2012

Well here is an update on my surf fishing from a previous commentary above…I now use a 11’6″ Elkhorn Switch Rod with a 350gr shooting head. I got rid of the SA Streamer Express due to excessive coil memory, and went to a Airflo Ridge running line bought from the Caddis Fly Shop. What a difference!
Fishing the switch rod has seen less fatigue after a morning of casting. I highly recommend this for fly fishing the surf as opposed to a single handed rod. In fact, my group of surf fly fishers are all gravitating to the two handed switch rod.
