We also have fish eating spiders in California:

Spiders of California (http://www.spiders.us/species/filter/california/)

Dolomedes triton
(Six-spotted Fishing Spider) (http://www.spiders.us/species/dolomedes-triton/)SummaryA large and strong hunting spider, this species is more closely associated with water than any of the other Nearctic fishing spiders. Find it among aquatic vegetation at the margins of streams and rivers, as well as floating around in lakes and residential pools. It eats aquatic insects, small fish, or even small amphibians!

Not to worry, they primarily eat mosquito fish.
