Fishing along the L.A. River is not ideal. Traffic on the 5 and 2 freeways roar nearby. Homeless encampments dot the channel. The cleanliness of the water and the safety of eating fish that swim in it is a concern. Despite these drawbacks, summer weekends find families, groups of friends and seasoned anglers at the river’s edge, and some say their numbers have been growing.
