    Since I'm on the opposite side of the country I can give you some basic guidlines but finding a local flyshop or a local flyfishing club would help you way more than I could. You will be fishing anything from an 8-10WT rod. The size of the rod will depend on the wind and the size of the flies you will be throwing. Hopefully some CA guys jump in here to give you some local advise.
    The best way to a fisherman's heart is through his fly.
