Description - Cliffhouse Fishing Access, as the name suggests, is an excellent place for Delta fishing. Near Rio Vista, this small site is located conveniently just off Highway 160 and offers both clamming and Delta fishing opportunities. Fishing the Sacramento River is very different from angling the American, and the avid fishing enthusiast should try both before selecting a favorite spot.
- Fishing and clamming are the main attractions here, although recent years have brought windsurfers to these waters. Those enjoying this adrenaline-pumping sport should be aware that they do so at their own risk. The fishing is best in fall, although year-round fishing is good at the Cliffhouse Fishing Access.
The park is open year-round from sunrise to sunset. Parking fees are collected 365 days a year, even on special event days and on weekends. Self-payment is required if no fee collector is present.
Recreation - Anglers, clammers, and windsurfers find satisfaction and thrills at Cliffhouse County Public Fishing Access!
Climate - A generally warm, dry climate prevails in the Central Valley; it is hot in the summer, mild in the winter. Precipitation in the region falls mainly from October through April. Winter temperatures tip well below freezing producing frost, however, snow is very rare. Summer temperatures above 100 degrees F are part of the normal pattern.
From Interstate 80 or U.S. Highway 50 in Sacramento take the Interstate 5-South exit. From I-5, take Highway 12 west. Then follow Highway 160 north. The Cliff House Fishing Access is located on a small turn -off from 160, just north of Das Cliffhouse Restaurant.
