Oh we have plenty of chances to do that.
Worst case of frostbite I ever got was a January morning standing in the middle of a river fishing for steelhead in Northern California.
And, as far as Southern California goes, our only real stream fishing occurs in the winter when the rain keeps the streams and rivers at a reasonable flow level. During the long summer dry season, most of them are too warm to fish because the trout get too stressed.
If you want to feel sorry for us, that would be the season of despair for So Cal.
