Where outdoor recreation has no end
Humboldt Bay North Jetty, Humboldt CountyWhen the outgoing tide meets a big north swell the entrance to Humboldt Bay can be treacherous and spectacular, but often there is news of someone who got too close. Enjoy the scene from a safe distance.Photo by Casey Allen
Big Lagoon, Humboldt CountyBig Lagoon is a great place for small craft, famous for its winds. Sailors and wind surfers can find every level of difficulty each day it blows and still, calm water can be found for canoe and kayak. Photo by Marna Powell
Scotty Point, Humboldt CountyIt has been said that when you find an abalone near Trinidad in Humboldt County it will be a big one. The fact that to find them you must enter another world full of strange sights is alone worth the trip.Photo by Tracy McCormack
Trinidad Memorial Lighthouse, Humboldt County
Trinidad Head, a large domed prominence rising to a height of 380 feet, is connected to the mainland only on its northern end, thus forming the beautiful and natural Trinidad Bay on its eastern side.Photo by Tracy McCormack
Cape Mendocino, Humboldt CountyA red sky in the morning does not concern recreational tuna fishermen because they are armed with the most current weather information. Technology has made offshore excursions much safer.Photo by Casey Allen
Brookings, Curry County
Albacore are the most sought-after game fish off the Jefferson Coast. The anticipation of a season is so high by July that anglers move from one end of the "state" to the other in search of long-fins.Photo by Joel Brock
Klamath River, Del Norte County
A tour captain/narrator will describe the river's rich history, local Native American culture, and thriving wildlife. Bear, deer, elk, osprey, eagles, hawks, otters and mink are seen often during the trip.Photo by Tracy McCormack
Weitchpec, Humboldt CountyDuring late summer and early fall where the Trinity (l) and the Klamath join, you are perfectly positioned to cast flies or spinners from the banks for huge fall-run Chinook salmon and steelhead. Photo by John Harlan
Trinidad, Humboldt County
Surrounded by redwoods and spruce, Trinidad is often compared to a quaint Cornish fishing village. Trinidad Head rises to shelter the harbor, its small fleet of fishing boats and working pier. Photo by Tracy McCormack
Pacific Ocean, 7 miles southwest of Trinidad Head
Salmon runs are very cyclical and the ocean here is also unpredictable. These highly prized fish are also difficult to catch even when plentiful. One this size (25 lbs) makes the day for any angler. Photo by Tom Davison
