Nothing close to the LB. You may want to try your hand on the salt.

Contact the guys at Fishermen's Spot out of Van Nuys. They should have some recommendations.

Hmm within an hour for trout sorry but you are left with the local pay lakes or the local stocked community lakes. Pretty sure that DFG will stock the local lakes too. If you want to flyfish for other fish besides trout, try that really big lake just on the other side of Ocean Blvd. Yes ocean fish can and will be taken on the fly and will put out a better fight. What type of setup are you using? I wouldn go to the salt with anything less than a decent 5wt. Then again I havent ventured out into the salt water with a fly rod... Still want to do that soon.
