Attention Anglers!

Catch and Release Zero Limit Waters

In waters where the bag limit for trout is zero, fish for which the bag limit is zero must be released unharmed, and should not be removed from the water.

Angling Regulations in National Parks

Angling regulations in national parks may be more restrictive than State regulations. Anglers should check with the National Park Service to determine if seasons or bag limits differ from State regulations.

Coho Alert

Coho (silver) salmon may not be taken in any of the waters of the state, except in Lake Oroville, the Oroville-Thermalito Complex (Diversion Pool, Forebay, and Afterbay) and the Feather River from the Diversion Pool Dam to the Fish Barrier Dam. Incidentally hooked coho (silver) salmon, from all other waters must be immediately released unharmed to the waters where they are hooked.

Steelhead Anglers!

All wild steelhead caught must be released unharmed. Wild steelhead are identified by having an intact adipose fin.

Hatchery steelhead may be kept in selected waters. Hatchery steelhead are identified by a missing adipose fin and a healed scar in the location of the missing fin.
