People probably won't post locations to someone new, but if you poke around the site you can learn about the kind of habitat to look for.

Agreed with Otterwoman, but the whole Pacific coast is gorgeous. I have more experience with Northern Cali and the Olympic Peninsula, but any moist forests with creeks/seeps are a sure bet, but it also depends what you are looking for. A great resource, especially for habitat ideas, is californiaherps.com. Although this site focuses on herps found in Cali, there are many similar species or subspecies that occur more north along the coast that would utilize similar habitat.

I'll give it a look! I am not looking for anything in particular. I think any newt would be cool but I am open to anything since I am just starting my herping hobby.
