Found this quiz as well on the reef.org site.  This time it's for fish of the Pacific Northwest which seems to be a better match for NorCal.

Enjoy...

The black rockfish is unfair, in the photo the eye looks to be well behind the end of the mouth...   :smt013  The B&Y rockfish looks much like a china in that photo, I had to look at it for a while to decide that the nike swoosh wasn't good enough to qualify it to be a china.  Most B&Y have more random markings.

That site is more for scuba folk than fisher folk.  They could've really screwed us on the flatflish other than halibut and starry flounder as well as the warbonnets, wrasses and kelpfish.  ;)

Of the big lake they call Gitche Gumee
Superior, they said, never gives up her dead

I had never seen a white spotted greenling before.  It's not listed on Love's site but here is another picture I found.
