    There will still be special regulations on specific waters. I think there are 20 some odd pages of special reg. waters, but I didn't read through to see any in particular. I'm assuming from other posts, some of their favorite waters which currently have special regulations aren't proposed to, but I haven't looked up any in particular.

    Re: Changing regs

    There are meetings taking place throughout the state the next few weeks to discuss the proposed regs. I am going to the one tonight in Fresno. Will post a reply later about what was said.

    There are a few that concern me, both locally and the Eastern Sierra. #1 for me: changing Mammoth Pool, closed May 1-June 15 (1 1/2 months) to closed March through May (nearly three months)

I expect some of the advocacy groups will have an opinion too. My recommendation would be to join one of the fishing groups and let them know your opinion. Organizations with thousands of members have a louder voice than an individual.

    I agree i think the West and Carson give every angler a piece of water that they can fish to their own liking. Its not hard to read and understand the regs at first glance of 90 percent of the waters we fish.

    The opening waters year round especially the put and take fisheries will be suicude. basically the state will have to grow and plant more fish because anglers are fishing/keeping more. so were relying on the state in some waters.....the state......

    Re: Changing regs

    I am not sure how I feel about their proposal, except that I definitely would like to see the regs simplified. As they are now, it takes very, very careful reading and study of maps to know whether you are in compliance or not.....and even then sometimes I am not positive.

    The law should not work like that IMHO.

    Changing regs

    Just so Im undertsnading this correctly.

    https://www.wildlife.ca.gov/Fishing/...ation/Comments

    Basically the whole state is opening up to year round, no regs, 5 fish limit except for very few waters. they are pulling restrictions away from waters.


    Why?

    I would imagine by increasing the limit places that dont get stocked these waters will be fishless in no time? also wouldnt planted waters suffer because of the need to replineish fish stocks year round?


    Thoughts?
    Am I reading this correctly?
