Ocean salmon seasons curtailed on much of California coast, due to low Sacramento, Klamath numbers The California Department of Fish and Wildlife (CDFW) on March 11 announced that the recreational ocean salmon fishery has been curtailed on most of the California coast, due to poor stock assessments of Sacramento River and Klamath River fall-run Chinook salmon.    The Pacific Fishery Management Council (PFMC), the federal management body that oversees salmon and other ocean fisheries, has adopted three alternatives for 2020 ocean salmon fisheries off Washington, Oregon and California for public review.  The Council will make a final decision on salmon seasons ...

Rustic Rob Reimer’s Produces Memorable Sturgeon Trips! By: Stacy Barawed Truth be told, I'm starting to become a fixture on Captain "Rustic" Rob Reimers' boat.  And who can blame me?  I get to fish with an experienced captain and his adorable co-captain, a three-legged rescue chihuahua named Warren, all while kicking back on a comfortable River Wild boat that is largely covered, keeping me out of the elements.   Rob invited me to go sturgeon fishing, so of course, I jumped at the chance.  But when he mentioned it would be a night trip, I was a little hesitant.  As someone ...

May 19 of this year marked the fifth anniversary of the massive Plains All American Pipeline spill near Refugio State Beach in Santa Barbara County that resulted in the idling of Exxon’s three offshore oil platforms that rise like sentinels from the coastal waters. The collapse of the severely corroded pipeline resulted in 140,000 gallons of crude oil spilling into the ocean, killing hundreds of birds and marine mammals, halting recreational and commercial fishing and fouling four “marine protected areas” created under the privately-funded Marine Life Protection Act (MLPA) Initiative as the spill was cleaned up. Exxon’s offshore rigs have remained idle since the ...
