Santa Barbara Channel / Channel Islands Offshore
Stretching from Pt Conception to Pt Mugu, the Santa Barbara Channel separates the northern Channel Islands from the mainland and is one of the most productive fisheries in the world. Fog, wind, a web of fishing regulations and almost too many fishing options intimidate many a skipper departing from Santa Barbara, Ventura or Channel Islands Harbor. Stay calm and keep it simple with our laminated fishing map, with all the information you need available at just a glance!

Salmon Fishing Areas Clearly Marked
Santa Barbara Channel boasts the southernmost reliable ocean salmon bite on the West coast. Ocean kings don’t push this far south every year, but when the fish are in, the action can be hot and the fleet of boats is thick.
