Just moved to the neighborhood with my wife and dog. "Hello". *wave*

Besides my other (tons of) hobbies, fishing is something I have fun doing. I was reading about "Big Tujunga Creek" and its supposed fishing areas but was wondering if anyone knew anything local up in "them hills".

=)

Fishing is one of my hobbies too, locally the fishing spots are only good after planting unless you enjoy hiking, then you can go back farther and try for the ones that have washed down stream. Go to fishingnetwork.net and click on the links for rivers and streams....there is local info there.

Up in our local Angeles National Forest
Vogel Flats comes to mind for fishing.
I believe they even stock the stream
right there too ...

FF member Canyon Ed knows more about
that area... he lives up there !

It's pretty dry - I wonder if there's even any water up there this year.

Some enjoy fishing out of Haines Canyon Resv. Although I have never caught anything from there, and its smelly and buggy, depending on the time of year.

I've seem people catch bluegill at Haines canyon and I've seen people swim in there too. But..... YUCK :shock: I wouldnt swim or eat anything that came out of there. I know there's no water in the canyon below the dam so any fishing would have to be above.

Try up the Arroyo Seco behind JPL

Trailhead: From the Foothill freeway (210) in Pasadena, take the Arroyo Blvd/Windsor Ave exit. Head north on Arroyo, which becomes Windsor. Park in a lot on the left about a mile up, just before the intersection with Ventura Street. Walk up Windsor a few hundred feet to a gated ,narrow, paved road on the right side of a Y. The road to the left drops down into the JPL parking lot. (Lat:34.19338 Lon:-118.16893)
Bicycles are ok. You can fish anywhere on the right side unless posted otherwise. I caught trout (Check Western Outdoor news for stocking dates) at a pond at Gould mesa and most anywhere along the way. I worked at JPL and rode up the canyon before work and caught a limit every time they stocked it. I look for the specific tire tracks of the stocking truck to find the best spots :shock: I also rode horses with the resident ranger! It's about a 1.5 mi back. Water fountain at the ranger station. There's been no rain this year and it's pretty late in the season so the water may be down. Best bet is to call the local ranger for ANF.

P.S. Another hint. I've panned for gold up the Arroyo after a heavy rain. It's there under one of the bridges :wink:

Used to race at SoCAL raceway in Huntington Beach.. but they are up in the air and too far now. I now partake in "oval" (nascar) style racing up at HotRodHobbies in Saugus. I have yet to try and hit a track in Bakersfield or Camarillo yet.

Hey RCM besides Castaic there's also Lake Piru and further north is Pyramid lake, I'm a big fishin fool so hit me up we'll go sometime. Piru rents pontoon, and regular fishing (aluminum) boats. If you want to drive even further to the west there's also lake casitas
