California Bass Fishing: Where You’ll Find What You Want Most

If you don’t mind getting wet, California bass fishing is a great opportunity for wet wading. Because of the warm temperatures that pervade throughout the year in much of the state, waters are easily 70 degrees and the air temperature stays at 75 degrees or greater, meaning that the temperature is comfortable from early spring through late fall, especially in southern California.

To wade fish, you’ll need a fishing vest or waist pack so that you can carry more than just a single lure and a couple of sinkers. The pockets of your vest allow you to be prepared for whatever difficulties California bass fishing has to offer that day, with pockets to fill with extra lures, line, reel spools, pliers, and other equipment, as well as personal items like sunscreen, water to drink, bandages, insect repellent, snacks, and even a waterproof camera. If you don’t want to wear a vest, you should at least clip on a waist pack and take the essentials (always take drinking water, since lots of sun exposure, heat, and contact with water can cause dehydration).

With proper preparation, California bass fishing on foot can be a great deal of fun and actually produce quite a response with smallmouth bass, white bass, and other smaller species. Just make sure you have everything you need so that you don’t come out all wet!
