San Diego Coastline Professional Review and Guide
"The San Diego coast stretches from Oceanside down to the Mexican border. For the surf-fishing enthusiast, the beaches of this gorgeous coastline offer numerous jetties, rock outcroppings, lagoons, and other fish-attracting places to cast a fly rod. San Diego County beaches fish the best on an incoming tide, but you will probably be successful any time there is tidal movement. Most of these beaches are gradually sloping, so wading is not too tough. However, for your safety, do not wade in over your knees. Types of Fish: Corbina, croaker, barred surfperch, halibut, and mackerel. 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."
