The Devil's Punchbowl comes to mind. South Fork campground, which is about a 10 minute drive from the crag has some fishing pretty much right across the road. I bet the fishing isn't very good, though. Also, the various crags up near big bear lake may work nicely.

If it were a little earlier in the year, I'd say Mammoth Lakes. But it's probably a bit chilly there now. Owens River Gorge should still be ok though.

Lone Pine - Alabama Hills, perfect for beginners (climbs behind Ted's Shred). Three hours up the 395 from L.A., and you drive into the hills and walk maybe one minute to the climbs. Did I say convenient?

Ask in town about the fishing, it's pretty popular. I've taken my kids and they enjoy the small lake in the Portal, which is stocked, but the streams below have lots of places to catch trout.

Camp at Tuttlecreek Campground for a few bucks. Clean, nice latrines, and a stream running right through camp, only five minutes from hot coffee and breakfast in town.

No crowds and you can see the Milky Way at night.
