Santa Paula Creek Professional Guide

Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook

"Look past the local college, avocado farms and oil wells that sour the lower portions of the creek, and you’ll see Santa Paula Creek for what it’s supposed to be—a historic southern steelhead spawning habitat within the Santa Clara River watershed. The Department of Fish and Game has halted plants on this tributary of the Santa Clara and is working with the Santa Paula Creek Fish Ladder Authority and other local organizations to help repair damaged fish ladders and provide other restorations that will help improve steelhead passage and habitat in Santa Paula Canyon. 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."
