San Francisco 🇺🇸

Sun and Moon
The sun will be at it's highest point at 01:01 pm. Today we have 11:59 hours of daylight. For shallow water fishing the twilight periods are often the most productive fishing times, especially on days when a major or minor time will coincide with twilight. In low light conditions predators have better cover for their ambush and often hunt in shallow water.

New Moon is generally a very productive time for fishing. Dark nights mean that many predators feed more actively during daylight hours. The combined gravity of sun and moon during New Moon days has a stronger effect on all water bodies, leads to increased food availabilty and hence better fishing.
  • Distance to earth:
    384,776 km
    Proximity:
    49.1 %
We can compare the current moon distance to it's minimum and maximum distance from earth and express that as proximity. A high proximity means the moon is closer to earth. At 50% it would be at it's mean distance. A high proximity causes big tides, currents and has a direct effect on increased bite times. A proximity greater than 90% indicates a super moon.

Tide Coefficient at 12:27 am is 100
Tide Coefficient at 01:00 pm is 106

For fishing, stronger tides are often favourable as they cause stronger currents and more motion on the sea bed. The above tidal coefficients give us an indication of how strong the tides are compared to their average. A value over 90 indicates very strong tides, known as spring tides. A low value indicates weak tides, known as neap tides. The tidal coefficient can range from 20 to 120 with a mean value of 70. A higher number usually indicates better fishing.

7 Day Fishing Weather
The weather plays an important role in fishing. Wind strenght and direction often determine where you can fish and where fish might be holding. Although high pressure is usually good for fishing, steep pressure changes often trigger feeding frenzies and are great times for fishing. Of course temperature has also a strong effect on fishing and comfort on the water. So make sure to cross check the weather forecast with the solunar fishing times to determine the best times to go fishing. The graph below shows you the 3 hourly weather progression over the next 7 days. Scroll the graph left or right to see more.

Best Fishing Spots in the greater San Francisco area

Wharf's or Jetties are good places to wet a line and meet other fishermen. They often produce a fresh feed of fish and are also great to catch bait fish. As they are often well lit, they also provide a good opportunity for night fishing. There are 17 wharf(s) in this area.

Central Wharf (historical) - 3km , Hilton San Francisco Fisherman's Wharf - 3km , Hyatt at Fisherman's Wharf - 3km , Marriott San Francisco Fisherman's Wharf - 3km , Super 8 San Francisco Fisherman's Wharf - 3km , Best Inn - Fisherman's Wharf - 3km , Suites At Fisherman S Wharf - 3km , Meiggs Wharf (historical) - 4km , Fishermans Wharf - 4km , Holiday Inn Fisherman's Wharf - 4km , Holiday Inn Express Fishermans' Wharf - 4km , Best Western Tuscan Inn Fisherman's Wharf - 4km , Courtyard by Marriott Fishermans Wharf - 4km , Radisson Hotel Fisherman's Wharf - 4km , Sheraton Fisherman's Wharf - 4km , Fisherman's Wharf - 4km , Fort Point Wharf - 6km

Beaches and Bays are ideal places for land-based fishing. If the beach is shallow and the water is clear then twilight times are usually the best times, especially when they coincide with a major or minor fishing time. Often the points on either side of a beach are the best spots. Or if the beach is large then look for irregularities in the breaking waves, indicating sandbanks and holes. We found 14 beaches and bays in this area.

Mission Bay (historical) - 2km , South Beach Harbor - 3km , Washerwomans Bay (historical) - 3km , China Beach - 6km , Baker Beach - 6km , San Francisco-Oakland Bay Bridge - 7km , South Bay - 7km , Ocean Beach - 8km , Seal Rocks Beach - 8km , Horseshoe Bay - 8km , Kirby Beach - 8km , Sand Springs Beach - 9km , Quarry Beach - 9km , Perles Beach - 9km

Harbours and Marinas can often times be productive fishing spots for land based fishing as their sheltered environment attracts a wide variety of bait fish. Similar to river mouths, harbour entrances are also great places to fish as lots of fish will move in and out with the rising and falling tides. There are 7 main harbours in this area.

South Beach Harbor - 3km, China Basin - 3km, Central Basin - 3km, East Harbor - 4km, Yacht Harbor - 4km, The Marina - 4km, Cruise Line Terminal - 4km

We found a total of 97 potential fishing spots nearby San Francisco. Below you can find them organized on a map. Points, Headlands, Reefs, Islands, Channels, etc can all be productive fishing spots. As these are user submitted spots, there might be some errors in the exact location. You also need to cross check local fishing regulations. Some of the spots might be in or around marine reserves or other locations that cannot be fished.
