The classes take place at the Dockweiler Youth Center at 12505 Vista del Mar, which is just a short drive from your Anaheim hotel. Other options for fishing include a number of fishing tours for all ages and abilities, whether you prefer deep sea fishing in the Pacific or freshwater fishing in one of California’s lakes or rivers.
Adding a fishing expedition to your trip is a fantastic way to get away from the bustle of the city, relax, and learn some new skills.
