Santa Barbara Sport Fishing Club


We offer you camaraderie with a group of people with a common interest: fishing! We meet monthly and share local knowledge, with current fishing updates, interesting speakers and a raffle of fishing gear. We sponsor several tournaments each year in both salt and fresh water. Salt water tournaments are generally limited to Santa Barbara county and fresh water tournaments are at Lake Cachuma. Hone your skills in friendly competition with incentive to fish most all the local species. Tournaments often include: trout, red ear sunfish, surf perch, sand bass, calico bass, halibut, white sea bass, salmon, lake multispecies (small and large mouth bass, catfish, crappie, red ear sunfish) and a rock fish charter.


Monthly Meetings

Plans for monthly meetings to resume are underway as soon as COVID is at a lower risk. If you have any suggestions, ideas, or Guest Speakers Topics that you would like at the monthly meetings, please contact Matt Russell, Doug Bradley, or Whitney Uyeda



One of our goals is to create educational fishing opportunities for disadvantaged and underprivileged youth. The Santa Barbara Sport Fishing Club is a non-profit organization incorporated in the State of California.


The 2022 Tournament Schedule may be on hold until COVID is at a lower risk. Check out the Newsletters for more information on meetings and events.
