I'm also not sure what you've got here. While it certainly may be a moth that feeds on oak trees, that doesn't narrow it down much. The Oak Leafroller (Archis semiferana) occurs almost exclusively in the eastern half of the U.S. and would be very unlikely to occur on the West Coast. You may have a related species. Just hard to tell from this image.
