Summertime in the Baja is just plain hot - both the temperature and the fishing. Loreto, a small village just above the East Cape that sits inside the Sierra de la Gigante mountains, offers one of the most scenic and undeveloped vistas along the Baja. Founded in 1697, this town is also the oldest permanent settlement in the Californias.
One advantage to fishing Loreto is that there are plenty of other things a non-fishing companion can do. But those who come to fish can find small dorado, roosterfish, bonito, sierra mackerel, jacks and barracuda just off the beach, as well as big dorado, sailfish, marlin, skipjack, yellowtail and yellowfin tuna offshore. Few places rival the variety of species found here, and reputable local charter services and guides know how to fly-fish for them.
