It doesn’t exactly look like the best place in the world to cast a fly, but don’t let the armed soldiers, army tanks and random explosions off in the distance fool you. Camp Roberts, located midway between Los Angeles and San Francisco on the border of Monterey and San Luis Obispo counties, is home to one of the only regularly stocked rivers the San Luis Obispo area has to offer. Look past the bunkers, barbed wire and that tank nicknamed the “Widowmaker,” and you’ll find the Nacimiento River at Camp Roberts is an extraordinary fishery where the rainbows can be found all season long. The old military post can also make for some stellar turkey, dove, quail, waterfowl, pig, rabbit and buck deer hunts for weekend warriors. This fly-fishing chapter describes the "where, when, and how" for fishing in this area. It includes a full-page map and information on the known hatches, suggested equipment to use, the best flies to use, season, limits, nearby accommodations, and camping.
