I do, but it's a mixture of New York City area dialect, and Western New England accent (they are totally different, but sometimes I use both).
Like sometimes I say wota (water), sometimes I replace ing with in, I say New Brih-nn (New Britain), and I actually say y'all a lot, but that's only one southern word I usually use.
Whatevah woiks.

Let me assure you, most native Californians have distinct accents. They are usually oblivious to that fact. Problemo!

I've been told I have a Mission brogue (refers to the Mission district in SF that was populated by predominately Irish immigrants up until the 60s) and I do use colloquialisms common to Northern California.

It's a hella nice day today :)

No, not all, or yes I have two, lived in the south and the north, both for long periods of time so its a neutral blend, or so I've been told.
