View Full Version : Point Arena

Can anyone advise on what the fishing is like up at Point Arena between August and November? I may take a long drive up north. I have not been there in over a year. Fishing used to be great in the spring. I would like to know how the fishing is in the fall, and year-round. Thanks!

In Ft Bragg, 42 miles north of Pt Arena they say that is the best time of the year for lingcod.

I'll be using 7' medium action spinning rod with 10lb test line. I may go down to 8lb line. Usually, that has served me fine for perch fishing on piers and along the beaches. (I will just have to remember to invest in a crab net and long rope for taller piers like Point Arena.)

Hmmn, I'm not sure I want to tangle with a Lingcod on this setup, although one never knows. Will be targeting mostly perch.

Thanks for the info.
