With occasional notes from elsewhere
Cabezon! Scorpaenichthys marmoratus. From Miller and Lea (Guide to Coastal Marine Fishes of California):Baja Ca to Alaska, intertidal to 250', reddish to greenish with intense dark and light mottling. Diagnostic feature: a large broad-based cirrus extending along midline of snout.You can see the cirrus along the snout in your pictures really well. What a beautiful fish!
