On my latest Fly Fishing adventure I decided to go and check out Santa Anita Creek. So I got on the 210 freeway exited at Santa Anita Ave, and followed the road up to the end at Chantrey Flats. So you will end up in the parking lot and the road that you want to take down is at the south side of the parking lot. Follow the paved trail down alittle and that will take you down to first water trail. Not long after jumping on first water trail you will be at the creek. The creek will mini dams on it about every1/4 mile or less and these are the spots to fish. I fished each one on my way back to Sturtevant Falls for about5-10 minutes each and I caught 7 fish and also got a couple hits on a few Rainbows that got away. This creek is not stocked, all of the fish are Native Trout (you can tell by the beautiful coloring of the fish) so I urge you CATCH AND RELEASE ONLY! If you want more info and better directions check out the link on my main page under locations.

    Hey Sean,
    Great pics! Sounds like a place worth checking out. I picked up a book by Chris Shaffer with some other interesting sites although not all of them would qualify as “urban” spots. Still, they re pretty accessible to most SoCal anglers.
    Dude, we gotta get busy!
