Weather Conditions And Fishing In Southern California

Aug 17, 2007
With the surge in popularity in fishing in Southern California, especially amongst newer anglers, it's a good idea to be aware of the optimal times and seasons for the different breeds.

Not only will this help you to land a bigger catch, but it will also help you determine which months you should be fishing in, depending on your taste. Weather conditions play a big part in how successful you are, so it's a good idea to brush up on how to predict how a day is going to pan out.

Since some types of fish that are happy to swim in a variety of weather conditions, predicting the weather becomes even more important. If you want to fish during the times when fish feed and rest, then you will want a calm and stable water surface.

Obviously, weather conditions in Southern California need to be clear and free from any kind of turbulent atmosphere. Since fish tend to feed in the afternoon, and then swim to the deeper areas to rest, a clear, mid-afternoon day is ideal for fishing in Southern California.

If the weather conditions are cold, then fish will tend to eat a larger amount for longer, since the sun is attracted to the colder water, heating it. This, in turn, brings the fish to the surface more, or along the banks of a river, making a good catch easier. This is in stark contrast to warmer days, especially in shallower waters, where the fish will rest more frequently, and make them harder to catch.

However, as mentioned, some fish can swim in all weather conditions, so even if there is a prevailing wind, there is still good opportunities for fishing. If the wind is one-directional, you may wish to look towards areas where there are reeds and bushy areas, or even floating timber.

However, if the wind is gusty and multi directional, then fish will ten to gravitate toward muddier areas. Be aware, though, that even the sturdiest of fish will probably not swim at all if the wind is particularly strong, and they will rest up at the bottom of the waterbeds.

If rain is the prevailing weather condition, then this can actually be the best time for fishing. Fish will be attracted to the vibrations on the surface, and swim upwards to feast, making this an especially enjoyable and productive time for fishing. Make sure the weather conditions aren't too wet, though - heavy rain will usually stop the fish from surfacing at all.

The best ways to try and predict weather conditions can range. Seasoned anglers will use methods such as cloud types, how the waves are moving, whether thunderheads are visible, and other formulas. However, if you're at all in doubt, simply check the local meteorological conditions online for Southern California to help prepare yourself for an enjoyable day's fishing.
