    CDFW are not focusing any efforts on removing Striped Bass or Largemouth Bass, they are simply not managing for them. There's a big difference. If CDFW manages for them they will be sued by groups...

    Disclaimer: these are not necessarily my opinions but from a regulatory/law standpoint.



    This one is fairly easy, any species that imperils the long-term survival of any ESA-listed species....

    So you mean fisheries where the population is healthy and stable and additional take might be possible?

    This is the exact point of revisiting and evaluating whether current regulations are overly...

    tcorfey,

    Thank you for finally listing an example of a declining fishery. I'm still waiting on all these 'depleted' fisheries I keep on hearing about.

    You hit the nail on the head on your Hot...
  5. It doesn't matter that one user group is more in...

    It doesn't matter that one user group is more in tune with conservation than other user groups. The state holds the fish populations in public trust meaning it should be equally available to all user...

    Since I derailed this thread with a dissenting opinion I will add my comment to CDFW:

    I applaud CDFW's efforts to increase fishing opportunities for all user groups with these new regulations. I...

    Lew,
    I don't need you to tell me what to do or how to think. To me you reek of conspiracy theorist. This thread is filled with armchair experts who think they know better than the people that...
  8. I am an environmental scientist (don't work for...

    I am an environmental scientist (don't work for CDFW) and realize fishing regulations have almost nothing to do with the current state of our fisheries. Things like habitat loss, water policy,...

    Scientists are able to model all of that. I had a program in college where I could adjust things like harvest, slot limits, etc. and model how the population is affected. I can guarantee you CDFW...

    Our resident trout populations aren't depleted, that is such a ridiculous statement. They certainly aren't depleted due to overfishing either. We have plenty of healthy fisheries in California. I...
  11. What fisheries are 'depleted' according to you?...

    What fisheries are 'depleted' according to you? Depleted has a specific meaning in fisheries management and I would not consider most of the trout rivers in northern CA anything close to 'depleted'....
  12. We should be encouraging more people into the...

    We should be encouraging more people into the sport in general since fishing and hunting is a dying breed in CA. Simplifying and extending seasons should help encourage that. I'm all for opening up...

    No rain until Monday???? I gotta wonder where you heard that. I drove back from Forks Washington to my home in NorCal today, and can tell you that it was raining buckets from Portland all the way to...

    Thanks for posting that email Jason.

    Remember the Mount Polley mine disaster a few years ago up in BC? You know the one where the dam failed and spilled mine waste into the headwaters of the...

    If you get seas are conducive to fishing, the perch will be in close. Looks like its going to be pretty nasty for the short term though.

    Don't bother with tying mole crab flies. Anything that is...

    The federal agencies I work with have switched over to the Garmin InReach. It's a bit more expensive than the Spot devices buy the extra features are worth it. Having two way communication is worth...

    There's always fish throughout the river this time of year but the big numbers will definitely be down river.

    I'm looking more at the 1/2/3 ips and 2/3/5 ips versions.

    I'm aware of the SA versions in the UST but a lot of them only come in larger grain sizes. Guideline is no longer distributed in the US....

    Anyone have any experience with this line or similar Scandi-style heads?

    I'm looking for a shooting head system for shad fishing in the valley and this looks promising. I like the idea of sinking...

    The TRRP is stuck in a bad spot here. The TRRP cannot just be suspended like some people want as it would take an act of Congress.

    Just keep in mind this decision to suspend TAMWG has nothing to...

    In response to your first question, it is possible it is too little too late. We can't control ocean conditions though so all we can hope for is restoration to improve juvenile salmonid conditions in...

    Mahahual is another good option. It's about an hour from Xcalak and about an hour and a half from Espiritu Santo Bay. Really good baby tarpon and snook fishing in the surrounding lakes. Also permit...
