No fishing license is required to fish off the Pismo Beach Pier. So you can take the kids! However if you plan to fish from the shoreline or from a boat, a license is necessary. Also, if you are planning to park in the pier parking lot between the hours of 11:00 pm and 4:00 am in order to fish, you will need a parking pass, obtainable in the lobby of the Pismo Police Station at 1000 Bello Street.

This morning I had a great time on the Nature Walk. Across Pier Avenue, to the East of the Bridge is the trailhead! As you walk past the bridge take a look in the water on your left. Sometimes you can see a school of white carp about 2.5 feet long! The head of the Nature Trail is just past the bridge on the left! The Nature trail has views of the Lake and the trees form a canopy over it and there is plenty of other vegetation. If it was not for the urban noise you would think that you are in a temperate rain forest! I saw two baby rabbits scurrying across the trail! You can here the splashes of the turtles, who have crawled up onto the branches that come out the water, escaping as they hear you approach. On rare occasions, if you are quiet, you can sneak up on them and see them! These are Pacific Turtles. It is an exciting experience to see the turtles and to feed the ducks on the lake next to us! Once in a while you may see a deer or coyote!
Poison oak is here!! It is strongly recommended that do not touch any vegetation on the Nature Trail at any time of the year! Poison oak can be a bush under the sun, or a vine in the shade. It generally has three leaves together with some red coloration! Look up images of poison oak on your phone! Save yourself some pain!
At the Visitors Center, (The Visitors center and public restroom are closed during the corona virus Sorry!) across the street, which has programs and exhibits, they keep track of wildlife sightings. There are picnic tables with a view of the lake next to the Visitors Center! Check in and tell them what you saw. They list what others have seen on the board! There are beavers, Osprey and once I saw a Deer and fawn. They ran right by me being more afraid of what might be chasing them then they were of me and my daughter! Ten years ago a Cougar was spotted in the early morning hours and it was eliminated by the early hours of the afternoon by the Park Service. Walk with a friend. Not just a friend but a friend with a big stick!
There are many Birds here! As you reach the end of the lake, turn left back toward Pier Avenue and then take the blacktop road, to the right, past the camp ground and public restrooms. Take the first right on the blacktop road and it will turn into sand as you walk through the dunes. The Beach will open up before you!!! You can find sand dollars on the beach and in the water. You can teach your children to catch sand crabs here! Walk to the left back to Pier Avenue. There is a public restroom and a candy store where you can get a free salt water taffy sample. Walk up Pier Avenue to our complex. Its about 2.3 miles around and you can go either direction! Overall it is a very nice Nature Walk!!!
Alternate Route (Shortest Walk) Walk across the street through the parking lot and merge left! Follow the road as it turns into sand, through the sand dunes, and to the beach!
Alternate Route (Medium) Walk across the street, Find the trail next to the Lake, on the right of the Visitors Center. Turn left at the road. Follow the road right as it turns into sand, through the sand dunes, and to the Beach!
