Jerry has been watching all the neighbors cleaning their fish at the fish cleaning station in the park. He is debating about buying the fishing license, it is over $125, he would only get to use it for a month or so. I wish they would come up with a senior’s fishing license that was good for all fifty states. It is tough buying them for each state, plus Canada. One of the favorite fishing areas recommended for the area is Kellogg Beach. Jerry and I rode over and checked it out. It is a great place for watching the birds too.
Kellogg Beach is a small Del Norte County beach access surrounded by state lands north of Crescent City. The beach access has a parking area and a path for vehicles to drive right onto the sand. We didn’t dare try driving on the beach, the sand was way too thick. It was hard just walking to the beach. If you walk or drive north you’ll be in the northern portion of Tolowa Dunes State Park and if you walk south you’ll be on the beach at Lake Earl State Wildlife Area. This is a remote spot on the Northern California coast making it great for beachcombing. Driftwood, agates, and fossils can be found in addition to cool stuff that washes ashore.
We enjoyed watching the fishermen, one told us he was having a hard time with the seals. He would toss his line in and the seals would take his bait. I was wishing I could have watched the seals doing so. That would be more fun than fishing to me. :-) I hope you enjoy the fishing pictures, I will let our readers know if or when Jerry decides to fish or just watch. Check back later for more from California.
