Dog Goes Fishing at Huntington Dog Beach, CA

dog beach fish


Huntington Beach, CA--A dog catches a fish at Huntington Beach City Beach area designated as Dog Beach. The popular beach adjacent to Bolsa Chica State Beach is known as a great fishing location. Dogs need not apply for license!    


While people over the age of 16 must purchase a fishing license to fish at Huntington City Beach, dogs fish free. You'll see people surfing, and sometimes you'll see them cast a line at this popular beach on the north side of the city at the perimeter of the Bolsa Chica wetlands. But when dogs take to the water to play, you never know what they may catch. Usually it's a ball or some other manufactured toy. But the more skillful and enterprising pets manage to find catch to feed their owners. If you don't have a fishing license, you aren't allowed to take fish from the beach, even if your dog catches them in his or her mouth. Dogs can only fish free at Dog Beach, but people can fish free at public piers, including one to the south, Huntington Beach Pier, and one to the north, Seal Beach Pier.

Dog Beach is located on Pacific Coast Highway between Goldenwest Street and Seapoint. Metered parking runs parallel to Pacific Coast Highway. If you don't see a parking spot, drive south on Pacific Coast Highway and try your luck at the metered Coast Highway parking beginning around 22nd Street. You'll have to walk with your pet a short distance to Dog Beach, but it is a pleasant stroll with pavement and plenty of grass lawn for pets to sniff.
