There's a "West Coast" forum. You might want to post this there as well. I'm just north of there in Washington but we have a whole different deal.
Good luck.

We've got a REALLY different atmosphere up here. Most days I'm surf fishing there's no one else doing it. Now the Jetties and piers are a different story but flat out open sand heaving at the ocean is a LONELY sport up here.

Well, yes and no. Better talk to the Oregon people about that. It could be like the Salmon fishing up here. There are several regular posters from that region in the West Coast forum.
