Thumbs up Santa Ana River

Anyone been fishing the Santa Ana River/Bear Creek area lately? Never have been there and was wondering if it's worth the drive from OC.

Santa Ana River is nice but it's not really a river. More like a creek. Still there are lots of fish both natural bows and brownies and lots of stocked bows in there. Bear Creek is a pain to get to unless you have a 4 wheel drive vehicle. Bear Creek is one of the natural streams and is not stocked. It does have plenty of bows and brownies but they are on the smaller size. Any river you have never fished before is always worth the drive, if you don't catch fish, you had a nice drive and a great hike.

Thanks for the feed back. Having a troublesome knee, don't think that I will be up to hiking up to Bear Creek.

If you are having a problem with the knee then the Santa Ana river would be great. There is a dirt road that goes alongside the river for about 4 miles above 7 oaks and goes to Hwy 38 at South fork campground.
