Fishing Opportunities Remain For Northern California Anglers
The holiday season is a good time for anglers of all ages to take advantage of fishing opportunities in Northern California. There are many lakes and reservoirs that remain open to fishing, and a portion of the Upper Sacramento River is open all year to provide opportunities for stream anglers.
“The Department of Fish and Game is pleased to provide anglers with opportunities to catch rainbow trout at lakes and reservoirs near their homes,” said DFG Northern Region Senior Hatchery Supervisor Linda Radford. “Although the fishing opportunities are available, it is advised to be well-prepared for winter storms and to dress accordingly. Northern California can experience extreme cold weather, so checking the weather forecasts and winter advisories is also recommended.”
Please refer to the 2008-2009 Freshwater Sport Fishing Regulations for details regarding open seasons, gear restrictions and bag limits.
