Title: Summer '15 Drought Closures
Post by Lew_Riffle on Jul 6th, 2015, 8:57am

Heads up as the summer goes on.  As of the start of July the California Department of Fish and Wildlife Agency(DFG) has the authority to close normally open fishing waters if specified parameters are met that make angling a major stressor factor.

So if you are headed out up the state you be advised to check to see if the water you are headed to is under one of these closures.  They will be specific to certain waters and this is not so much a blanket closure so check!

The department shall maintain a list of closed waters of the state and update that list on

Wednesday of each week by 1:00 pm. In the event that water conditions change later in the week, the

fishing status for each specific water will not change until the day following the next Wednesday. It

shall be the responsibility of the angler to use the telephone number provided below or go to the

departmentís website at to obtain the current status of any

water. The number to call for information is (916) 445-7600.
