California Pier Report — May 2009

Northern California Piers

Lawson's Landing — No report this month. How To Get There: Take Highway 1 to the middle of the town of Tomales. Turn west onto the road that goes to Dillon Beach. At Dillon Beach you will see a road marked Lawson's Landing; simply follow it down to the entrance, pay your money, and stay on the road to its end at the foot of the pier.

Lucas Wharf (Bodega Bay) — No report this month. How To Get There: Take Highway 1 to Bodega Bay, the wharf is at the south end of town, the parking lot fronts onto the highway.

Spud Point Marina Pier (Bodega Bay) — No report. How To Get There: Take East Shore Rd. off of Hwy. 1 to Bay Flat Rd. Turn right and follow until the road turns into West Shore Rd. Continue on past the marina until you see the breakwater.

Point Arena Pier – Some perch, greenling and cabezon are available when the wind dies down. How To Get There: From the south, turn left from Hwy. 1 onto Iverson Ave., which will turn into Port Rd.

Trinidad Pier — John at the Seascape Bait Shop says a few people are crabbing for rock crabs but the weather has really been bad the past few days; no one is fishing for fish. How To Get There: From Highway 101 take the Trinidad exit and follow the road all the way to the harbor-it will change from Main Street to Trinity to Edwards Street. (A license is required from this pier.)

Citizen's Dock (Crescent City) — Dave, at Englund Marine. 201 Citizens Dock Road, said the weather has put a kibosh on fishing and crabbing from the dock. How To Get there: From Highway 101 turn west on Citizens Dock Road and follow it to the dock.

There are bajillions of small Dungeness crabs at the Del Norte Pier. If you're crabbing, all you get in your net are, literally, piles of juvenile dungees. But there's a great ray bite happening in the shallows of the bay at high tide, along with occassional leopard sharks showing up.
