During the open season (March, June, July, August & September), a California fishing license is required for people 16 years and older. Grunion may be taken by hand only. No holes may be dug in the beach to entrap them. There is no bag limit, but take only the fish you can use.  The grunion run in April and May, but no collection is allowed, only observation.

Grunion are a species of fish that leave the water at night to spawn on beaches during the spring and summer months throughout Southern California (Santa Barbara to San Diego). For four consecutive nights, beginning on the nights of the full moons and new moons, spawning occurs after high tides and continues for several hours. The best runs normally occur on the second and third nights of the four-night period. The second hour is usually better than the first hour.  Peak spawning is from late March to early June.

Grunion are unpredictable because after all….nature.  Even if you only get a moonlit walk on the beach, it’s a great experience! Grunion running would just be the icing on the cake!!!
