    Default New CDFW Freshwater Fishing Regulations 2021-22?

    Does anyone know where I can find the new adopted 2021-2022 Freshwater Fishing Regulations effective March 1, 2021 online? CDFW has gone paperless with the regulations booklet, and I can't seem to find any updated regulations.

    There were a lot of new regulations proposals floating around the last few years, but I'm not sure what actually was approved.

    I did read on Ken's Sporting Goods website the new adopted changes effective March 1, 2021 for Inyo/Mono counties. The East Walker is now back to the old regs- opens last Saturday in April to November 15. So I would assume that these regulations are printed somewhere, but I can't find them on CDFW's website.

    Thanks tcorfey for the links you provided. However https://govt.westlaw.com/calregs/Bro...efault)&bhcp=1 appears to be for regulations pre March 1, 2021. I was searching for the adopted regulation changes from March 1, 2021 forward. This is all I have found to date on the CDFW site: https://wildlife.ca.gov/Regulations "NEW Ocean and Freshwater Fishing Regulations will be posted on or before March 1, when the 2021-2022 regulations take effect". The new Ocean regulations are posted, but not the new Freshwater regulations. Either I'm missing the link or technically CDFW has to the end of today to post per the above statement.

    Seems odd to me that CDFW changed, from a papered regulation booklet to a online only regulations, and has not provided those regulations prior to the change date.

    Maybe they're busy helping out the California EDD and DMV with their fiasco's or it can always be blamed on COVID and budget cuts.

    They simplified the regulations and made them more complicated? I'm confused by the multiple table thing they have going on.

    Perhaps marks' link should be made a "sticky."
    Thanks, marks!

    It’s a total mess. I couldn’t believe it when I was looking at it earlier.

    Default DFW now has them posted on the web site

    https://wildlife.ca.gov/Regulations

    Oh boy, gonna take some studying.

    Most significant to me is that the McCloud is now open year-round.

    Most significant to many people (I think) is that the general trout season is now

    Sat. preceding Memorial Day through Sep. 30

    Note DFW will no longer be printing reg booklets, you gotta get them online now.

    Great, do a major change to the Regs and then make them harder to get.

    I guess everyone has a smart phone these days and can download the stuff.

    Still I do not like the change.

    I like most of the changes, there is now A LOT more water open year round for fishing access. I think they must have had the IRS and DMV get together to work on making it simple though.
