water temps

What impact does water temp have on the surf fishing. What is the ideal range sort of overall for the most species? Does it flucuate much? Changes caused by winds, off shore currents, both or other factors.
 
thanks

Here is a link to a blog on Garry Bulla's web site.

Garry Bulla is a local flyfisher and legend around here.  The blogs on his site cover most of the CA. South Coast.  Things are a little slow but the water is warming up.

The water does get warmer in summer. The only bad thing is the red tides which can kill off everything in an area. Winds and strong swells can cause turbidity and uproot kelp which makes fishing difficult. There are a lot of kelp beds so when broken kelp gets washed into the beaches it makes things messy. Water temps this time of year are about 63
 
Corbina, as well as halibut are being caught now.
 
Gary Bulla's Forum will have a lot of discussion on current conditions in Southern California:

and the Artful Angler fly shop (805 566-5900) will have the specific local information for Santa Barbara area.
 
The saltwater section of the Kern River Fly Fishing Forum also has some information:
