Arroyo Seco River - Steelhead

Print E-mail

The Arroyo Seco River is one of the most beautiful streams that I have ever seen.  It supports wild steelhead - a fish that I would love to go after next season - but, this season has already ended.  Be sure to check http://www.dfg.ca.gov for the current regulations for fishing this river.  There is an excellent campground nearby named (oddly enough) Arroyo Seco Campground, and it is very clean, green and quiet.

My understanding of the current regulations for steelhead fishing in this area is: Dec 1st through Mar 7th, but only on Sat, Sun, Wed, legal holidays and opening and closing days. Only barbless hooks may be used and there is a zero bag limit.

The banks are nice and broad in places.  Good for casting from the knees without wading in and potentially spooking the fish.
