Alamitos Bay Professional Review and Guide
"If you’re looking for a classic small saltwater experience in the Los Angeles area, Alamitos Bay is it. The place is intimate, the game fish are plentiful, and only lightweight tackle is needed. This is a perfect combination for anyone. First-time explorers and experienced salty fly rodders alike will find a wonderful fishery that challenges their skills on many levels. I also like the wide choice of habitat. Types of Fish: Spotted sand bass, barred sand bass, barracuda, corbina, croaker, halibut, surfperch, and jacksmelt.

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."
