    Re: Mokelumne river below comanchie dam

    You guys are thinking too hard. It’s 1 fish limit because you can fish barbs on your hook. Everywhere else in Cali is barbless for steelhead. If you’re looking for fish to take home, fish a different section. Like middle bar or Electra rd.

    I agree with that statement I fish that river alot , Not a large river but small with a lot of wild fish as well as a lot of wild steelhead that come up in the winter
    I thinking its because that is Mainly a hatchery river for hatchery fish .and they need all they can get for egg collection . Granted in the summer Months after schools Out , I have seen families of those types that can care less about Rules and regulations . They get a fish and throw it on the grill and then go get another fish and repeat the scenario , regardless of size of the fish , if its a wild fish or not .. they play stupid and get away with it because it not much for enforcement in the summer time , than it was this past steelhead season when you saw a game warden almost every weekend./ during summer time it is sad people like that are around!!!!

    It looks like its because of the one steelhead limit there . Maybe its too hard to differentiate between the 2 . I think there was a span of 10 years there in the 70's & 80's that no steelhead returned . Once again this is my 2 cents I could be wrong . Tightlines BF
