Coastal Conservation Association of California (CCA CAL) is our saltwater fishing advocacy group. They fight for our right to fish in California. They also believe in our white seabass hatchery program and are trying to expand it into California Halibut. They are fighting to make more artificial reefs. They are working with marine scientists to get real answers to issues that plague our fishery. CCA CAL is very important for the future of our fishing and we need you to all join. Like them on Facebook and follow them on Instagram.


Ten years ago, the San Diego Anglers started the “Warriors on the Water” program. It was a small way we could give back to our wounded military, to those who have sacrificed so much. Each year, the San Diego Anglers does two to three trips, taking out anywhere from 25 to 60 warriors each time. These trips would not be possible without the generous donations of caring people and organizations, for which the San Diego Anglers are very grateful.

Additional Info:

  1. IAngler App will be used for all measured fish.
  2. Groms (17 years and younger) may sign up the day of the event however we do encourage everyone to sign up on line so that we can be sure to have a shirt and your size available.
