    Try Lake Isabella east of Bakersfield, you can fish right from the shore. Good catfish,and trout from the shore.

    If you could pin down a more specific area that would be cool. I like Mendota slough. It is free, campfires are permitted and I catch fish:wink:

    thanx guys, to be a little more specific i live on the monterey bay and am willing to stay in cen cal or even go up north depending on what catfish lakes or ponds might be better. i want to camp on the bank of a lake and be able to fish for cats all night.I havent ever gone for cats but im very interested, so if this helps you help me i really appreciate it.

    I have fished Lake Cachuma quite frequently over the last 11 years. There is waterfront camping and the fishing there is excellent. It is just east of Buellton. About 45 minutes south of Santa Maria.

    That sounds like you & your Buddy what to hit up the Ca. Delta / but you may want to do that in about a month or so - when the water warms up a bit -the Cat Fishing will be much better by then.
