Top Fishing Spots in California


Set your sites on these three unbeatable fishing lakes in California this summer, and you may just find a new favorite spot.

Lake Almanor — Plumas County

Just the sight of Lake Almanor, with its pristine waters and towering mountain backdrop, will make you want to plan a return trip. You’ll find that this lake in northern California is packed with rainbow trout and smallmouth bass. Park your RV at the Almanor Campground to enjoy easy access to some of the state’s best fishing as well as the Lassen Volcanic National Park. From fishing, swimming and boating to hiking and sightseeing, you’ll never run out of things to do at Lake Almanor.

Lake Tahoe — El Dorado County

Lake Tahoe is easy to access for California and Nevada residents who live close to the border. The Lake is so massive that it’s surrounded by four counties — El Dorado, Douglas, Placer and Washoe. And if you thought the scenery was impressive at Lake Almanor, you’ll be even more impressed with what you find at this famous fishing spot. Be prepared to catch plenty of mackinaw, rainbow trout, jumbo brown trout and kokanee. Don’t forget to get a taste of the area’s other unbeatable outdoor activities like hiking, mountain biking, kayaking, paddleboarding and rafting.

Lake Shasta — Shasta County

Lake Shasta, also known as Shasta Lake, is one of the most diverse areas to fish in the state. It’s a reservoir within the Whiskeytown–Shasta–Trinity National Recreation Area that offers an abundance of crappie, catfish, smallmouth bass, sturgeon, redear sunfish, bluegill, green sunfish, trout, largemouth bass, king salmon and a variety of others. If you’re looking to catch more than your fill this summer, there’s no better place to be than Lake Shasta.

Make Your Way Down the PCH!

Bixby Creek Bridge Big Sur California

If you haven’t driving the Pacific Coast Highway yet – at least when you could take your time and visit the many places that are “must see stops,” plan to load up your RV this summer and take a week or two to enjoy the scenery the PCH offers.

If you are able to get more time off, take the PCH from start to end. Be sure to visit Pan Pacific RV Center before you begin the trip to ensure that everything in your RV is in great working condition. And, if you are towing a travel trailer or fifth wheel, be sure your tow vehicle is in top-notch condition.

Redwood National and State Parks

One of the “can’t miss” areas on the PCH is the Redwood National and State Parks. They are located about 5 miles south of Crescent City. You’ll enjoy tons of great old-growth redwoods, stunning beaches including Enderts Beach, gray whales, tide pools with tons of colorful sea life and wildlife, and you might even catch a Roosevelt Elk.

Humboldt Redwoods State Park / Shrine Drive-Thru Tree

Detour to Highway 101 South to visit the Humboldt Redwoods State Park, which is the largest contiguous old-growth in world. Head south of the visitor center to Myers Flat for the famous Shrine Drive-Thru Tree. You can drive a car through the tree, but an RV probably wouldn’t fit.


Visit the charming coastal town of Mendocino. The town, established in the 1850s, is the only town on the California coast that has a historical landmark status. You’ll see saltbox cottages, Victorian buildings, some of the best scenery around and art galleries. Choose from upscale fine dining venues or quaint cafes to get something to eat.

Santa Monica

Be sure to stop in Santa Monica to visit the 100-year-old pier, which houses tons of shops, restaurants, an amusement park, aquarium and an arcade. Ride the iconic Pacific Wheel Ferris wheel, the world’s only solar-powered wheel. This is a place you might want to spend at least a night in, as the area is lit up with over 160,000 lights at night and it’s definitely something to see.

Visit Pan Pacific RV Center

Stop by Pan Pacific RV Center to walk through the many RV floor plans we have available whether you are ready to buy your first RV or you are ready to upgrade your current RV.
