    Re: Two Pole Regs on the Sacramento River

    Yes, 100% legal to fish with two rods on the Sac river. The only exception would be any barbless area such as on the AR between Anchil Hofman and the Hatchery.

    Sorry, reread your post and gave you information you already know. I will try to inquire with enforcement tomorrow and post a response.

    Re: Two Pole Regs on the Sacramento River

    From the Freshwater Sport fishing regulations:

    SECOND ROD VALIDATION

    Anglers in possession of a Second-Rod Validation and anglers who are under 16 years of age may fish with two rods in inland waters, except for waters where artificial lures or barbless hooks are required.No more than one rod may be used in those waters in which only artificial lures or barbless hooks may be used.

    1.53. Inland Waters

    Inland waters are all the fresh, brackish and inland saline waters of the state, including lagoons and tidewaters upstream from the mouths of coastal rivers and streams. Inland waters exclude the waters of San Francisco Bay and the waters of Elkhorn Slough, west of Elkhorn Road between Castroville and Watsonville. See Section 27.00 for the description of San Francisco Bay.


    My interpretation reading the above regulations is you can.

    I believe you’re fine using the two rod endorsement on the Sac river. Who told you otherwise and what are their credentials?
    Here they come!
