The California Department of Fish and Wildlife (CDFW) is currently in the process of drafting guidelines for trout management. Three associated projects make up this effort:
- Strategic Plan for Trout Management
- Strategic Plan for Trout Hatcheries
- Inland Trout Angling Regulations Simplification
The new proposed regulations can be viewed here: Inland Trout Angling Regulation Simplification
We need engagement from the public to make these projects successful. You can help by reviewing draft plans and regulation changes as they become available. By providing feedback on these efforts, you help ensure that we are drafting plans and regulations to meet your needs while providing for the protection and enhancement of trout resources.
