- Resident Rainbow Trout
The Garcia River is 44 miles long and the watershed expands roughly 144 square miles on the northern coast of California, near Mendocino County. It's headwaters start in the Coast Range at 2,470 feet and it empties into the Pacific Ocean near Point Arena, CA.
The river provides recreation, agricultural and industrial water supply for the community of Point Arena, CA and is important wildlife habitat for freshwater fish. Excessive erosion caused by logging, grazing and gravel mining are the most serious issues facing the Garcia River today.
