The California Department of Fish and Wildlife advises local sports enthusiasts to fish responsibly on the next day of state fishing, Saturday, July 3, when a game fishing license is not required.
The state regularly has two free fishing days a year, usually the weekend of July 4 and Labor Day.
In a statement, the CDFW urges fishermen to choose to throw away water that has not been severely affected by drought and to be responsible for the level of fish they collect.
“California fishermen are fortunate to have a wide variety of fish species and a wide range of fishing opportunities and selection experiences from July 3,” said CDFW Director Charlton H. Bonham, in a statement to reporters. “We urge fishermen to choose their areas carefully due to the drought situation that is affecting some of our water. Please try to prevent water that seems to suffer from the effects of drought, where hot and groundwater can already stress the fish population.
Anyone or a group of people looking for fishing in inland waters can help maintain the survival rate of large numbers of fish by catching and releasing them. To increase living space, CDFW recommends trying to keep the fish in the water for as long as possible while removing the hooks, handling the fish as little as possible, and fishing before the day’s temperature drops.
All other rules remain applicable during free fishing days, including bag and bag size limits, gear restrictions, information requirements and fishing hours, among others. CDFW advises fishermen to have proper bulletins if they fish in the rainbow or sturgeon anywhere in the state or in salmon in the Smith and Klamath-Trinity river systems.
Fishing licenses for the remaining year can be purchased on the CDFW website at https://wildlife.ca.gov/Licensing/Online-Sales. California’s basic fishing fishing license currently costs $ 52.66, while a day-long fishing license costs $ 17.02.
