Mission Bay Fly Fishing Company was started with the intention of educating and informing anglers about the fly fishing here in San Diego. We specialize in walk and wade only fly fishing. Concentrating on Mission Bay and the surf along the coast. Mission Bay is the largest manmade aquatic park in the nation! Originally named False Bay by the Spanish explorer Juan Rodriguez Cabrillo in 1542. Mission Bay has 27 miles of shoreline, 19 that are sandy beaches. It can be fished year round with our not so bad San Diego climate! In the summer months the bay can be on FIRE!
When it comes to the surf fishing in San Diego nothing beats the quest for Corbina! Sometimes called the "Ghost of the Coast" or the "Poor mans Permit", these are only here in the summer months when the water is at it's warmest temperatures. This species is only found here in Southern California and is one of the few opportunities you can sight cast in this fishery. The largest recorded specimen was 28 inches long and 8.5 lbs. Just like Permit or Bonefish they can be elusive. You can be a hero one day and a zero the next. Corbina are not well known but once you experience the challenge you will never forget them!
