I just moved down here from Eastern Washington and I'm going
crazy trying to find places to fish - ideally fly fish or bass
fishing. I'd prefer to stay in the Orange County area, but if
the best stuff is up in LA county I don't mind doing some
traveling for the sake of my soul. Please any advice would be

Go to your nearest reservoirs and throw until you catch
something! See Google Earth for fishing areas nearest you.
If you want to fly fish get/rent a boat, a 9 or 10 weight, a
stripping basket, some fast sinking lines or shooting heads,
20# mono/flouro leader, a Rio Outbound Short Floater, and some
big flies in shad and rainbow trout patterns.

Thanks for the help guys. The google map is a great way to go, but I wasn't sure if all reservoirs were stocked and if so with what kinds of fish. Does anybody fish those drainage canals out near where they join into the ocean?
