Summer '15 Drought Closures
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 https://www.wildlife.ca.gov/Regulations to obtain the current status of any  
water. The number to call for information is (916) 445-7600.
