If you are trying for trout you can always try the Santa Ana River. Bad part is that parts of the road will take you up to around that elevation but the area that you could be fishing is much less than that. This is the part of the river that is in the mountains not next to the 91 fwy.

Hey there NVYDVR1 there is also the East Fork of the San Gabriel River. But you may have to wait until the fire activity is over. It is about 50 miles from Norco. Fish are rather small, so a two wt would be ideal.

Hi NVYDVR1,

If you want to made a trip there is the Kern River below Lake Isabella. There use to be some big trout in this stretch. Kernville is only 2500ft or so elevation. I think you could also fish the Kern above Kernville and stay below your limit. You drive to Bakersfield and then take 178 Ne. The road follows the river most of the way to Lake Isabella. Don't start fishing until you are up into the hills. The best number of fish will be above the lake.

Then there is Kings River below Pine Flat Lake. This is a great tailwater fishery but a good distance from you. There is also a river/stream east of Porterville that I have fished but don't remember the name.

Frank

If you are willing to drive a bit there is also the Santa Ynez River. Need to fish from below Cachuma Lake to Gibraltar Reservoir.

If you want to try something at sea level, check out the local surf and bays. Take the 91 to the toll roads, and you will be at the beach in no time. Lots of fun year round, no fires and the fish are there so long as the winter storms don't blowout the beaches. You will never know what you are going to catch
