The California Fish and Game Commission will be meeting next week for the second time as part of the inland trout fishing regulation simplification process. Friday, August 14th is the last day to submit comments by email to be considered during the meeting.
CalTrout has submitted a comment letter outlining our recommendations. In the letter, we advocate for a balanced approach to increasing the opportunities for anglers to get on the water while also protecting native trout species and sensitive wild trout fisheries.
We hope you will join us in advocating for these specific wild trout fisheries in our letter. If you wish to weigh in, here are two ways to submit comments:
Our latest article titled “California Fishing Regulations – Seeking a Balanced Approach” in The Current lays out our timeline, process overview, outcomes assessment, and shares our rationale for continuing to engage in this effort. It also outlines the opportunities for continuing public input in the process.
