 400 lakes you can drive to, 500 lakes you can hike to, 175 major streams, and 1,200 miles of coastline, enough places in this book to fish a different spot every weekend for 22 years.

If there is one book I want you to have on the seat of your car or pick-up truck as you venture out to find California’s best fishing, this is it. And yes, that is a real fish on the cover, a 9-foot, 400-pound sturgeon — jumped six times!

To try and merit your faith, California Fishing has been rewritten, reworked, and redesigned. There are close to 5,000 upgrades and updates in this edition, including a new how-to section, and in many cases, new easy-to-follow directions.

This is what the reviewers are saying: Acclaimed outdoors author and expert angler Tom Stienstra knows the best fishing spots in the Golden State, from the crystal-clear lakes dotting the Sierra Nevada to the abundant waters just off the coast of San Francisco. Moon California Fishing leads both beginner and expert anglers to the best lakes, rivers, and coasts that the state has to offer. The eighth edition of this classic guidebook offers detailed descriptions of over 2,000 fishing locations and includes over 70 pages of fishing tips and advice. Complete with detailed regional maps as well as directions and ratings for each location, Moon California Fishing provides anglers with first-rate expert advice and all the necessary tools to head outdoors.

To achieve this, I have personally ventured to all 58 counties in California, searching for every hidden spot, as well as the secrets at the better-known ones. Senior Research Editor Stephani Cruickshak was involved in a process where every listing was checked, faxed, and reviewed. Hundreds of people were involved in polishing the final product.

Radio show host Bob Simms, an avid fisherman, reviewed the manuscripts, and his suggestions were incorporated in the final galleys. Some 40 fishing experts were involved in the creation of the new how-to section of the book, each who I fished with. They are listed on the book’s credit page.

In all, there are 375 lakes you can drive to, 483 lakes you can hike to, 175 major streams, and 1,200 miles of coastline, enough places in this book to fish a different spot every weekend for 22 years.

I fish, hike and camp all the time, 12 months a year. It’s my full-time job. Look for my boat out on the water, the Custom Design 18-footer, with the words “The Stienstra Navy” on the big Honda outboard.
