One of America's best cities has some of America's best fishing.
Have you ever thought about what it would be like reel in a gigantic Chinook salmon or sturgeon with the Golden Gate Bridge as the background? We have, and that’s why we’ve listed so many outfitters in the San Francisco area. Fishing is good year round here, and there is a multitude of different species to target. You can go out to sea to chase salmon and sturgeon, or you can stay close to shore and cast to tasty rockfish and lingcod.
Many of San Francisco’s fishing charters are based out of the iconic Fisherman’s Wharf and have been for generations.

Whether you’re a corporate group, a family, or just looking to get away for day, a fishing trip in the Bay Area might be exactly what you need.
