The law says that you can fish without a license but it must be catch and release, if you want to bring the fish home you need a license

Lots of fishing going on. Not sure if you need a license but I would guess so. Check local regulations.

Fishing is permitted and the signs indicate what is allowed. This is a great spot to watch surfing, fish and enjoy a meal

Yes, there are always people fishing on the pier. Lots of lobsters pots being used right now too. I am guessing you need a license, check with city hall. On weekends the shack on the pier also sells bait and rents some equipment.

There are always people fishing from the pier. While not a fisherman myself, I would assume you need a California fishing license.

Yes, you can fish and you need a license. Not sure how much they are. I believe you can purchase a one day license.

I don’t think that you need a license & yes people can fish there.

Not a fisherman so I’d double check re:

License .

You can definitely fish on the pier. I’ve seen many people fishing as for the license I am not too sure. You might want to contact the city to find out.
