Anglers' Guide to the United States Pacific Coast: Marine Fish, Fishing Grounds & Facilities.
Squire, James L., Jr.; Smith, Susan E.
The purpose of this guide is to provide a general source of information on areas of the Pacific coast that are more frequently fished and the species of fish that are commonly taken. The guide covers the marine and estuarine waters along the coasts of California, Oregon, Washington, Alaska, Hawaii, American Samoa, and Guam. It is arranged in five sections according to similarities in their fisheries. Each section contains a series of coastline fishing charts that outline offshore, bay, and shoreline fishing grounds and give locations of marine sport fishing facilities such as sport fishing boats, boat launching sites, fishing piers, skiff rentals, and jetty fishing sites. Included in the guide are forty charts of fishing areas and glossary of 237 of the most common marine game fishes. (Author/BB)
