The California Department of Fish and Wildlife on April 17 announced the recreational salmon seasons for 2018, noting that it appears to be "a mixture of good news and bad for California anglers." "Klamath River fall run Chinook are likely to be one of the better fishing opportunities due to higher returns that will support both ocean and inland salmon seasons," according to the CDFW. "But returns for Sacramento River fall run Chinook – the main stock of salmon supporting California’s ocean and Central Valley river fisheries – have been low for the third consecutive year, pushing them into 'overfished' ...

Governor Jerry Brown described the vote by the Metropolitan Water District (MWD) of Southern California Board of Directors on April 10 to support the Delta Tunnels as “a historic decision that is good for California – our people, our farms and our natural environment.” Assemblymember Jim Frazier (D-Discovery Bay) strongly disagrees with Brown’s assessment of the vote as “a historic decision,” instead issuing a statement pointing out how MWD’s “dishonesty” threatens to destroy the Delta: “Californians deserve comprehensive 21st century water management solutions in light of climate change and more frequent and devastating droughts, not a decades old plan that creates no benefit and picks ...

On April 12, the California Fish and Game Commission at a teleconference meeting approved full recreational fishing seasons on the Klamath/Trinity and Sacramento River systems, but the bag limit on the Sacramento has been reduced from two to one fish.

The Klamath Basin quota this season is 3,409 fish ...

In spite of appeals by many of its ratepayers to oppose the Delta Tunnels project, the Metropolitan Water District of Southern California’s Board of Directors today voted 61% to 39% to support the full project to build two massive water tunnels under the Sacramento-San Joaquin River Delta. The vote in favor of the twin tunnels took place after a topsy-turvy week where representatives of the giant water agency flip-flopped between support of a one tunnel proposal and a two tunnels option. The Board pledged to commit $10.8 billion (or possibly more without a spending cap) to cover 64.6 percent (or more) of the upfront ...
