The Tri-Cities South Orange County Coastline is known for excellent surf fishing and for offshore kelp beds (although they have been diminished in the past thirty years). Looking North of the San Clemente pier which is 1,296 feet long is Dana Point Harbor which is rich with fish and to the south is the warm-water area around the San Onofre Nuclear Power Plant and Seal Rock. The pier is located over a sand beach and the pier's original pilings were built in 1928 and are heavily covered with mussels.
A Wildlife Conservation Board reef was constructed out near the end of the pier and due to normally mild wave action a variety of fish are found such as corbina, spotfin croaker, yellowfin croaker, a few sargo, barred surfperch, guitarfish, various rays, and small sharks can be caught right off the pier.

The quake, which had a preliminary magnitude of 6.8, came just one month after a 7.2 magnitude temblor killed at least 12 people in Japan's northern mountains...." Associated Press 7/24/08
