Proposed Amendments to Section 7.50, Subsection (b)(47), Fall River Complex
Document Type
NEG - Negative Declaration
Document Description
The California Fish and Game Commission proposes to amend the current bag and possession limits for trout in the Fall River Complex, and expand the geographic area to account for the best available science. The best available science that has recently become available about the Fall River Complex, including Bear Creek, indicates a unique spring system with a mix of rainbow trout life histories locally adapted to a spring fed and snow melt system. This information suggests there are genetic differences among rainbow trout populations within the Fall River Complex. The proposed regulation change will not allow a seasonal harvest, and will prohibit the use of barbed hooks to protect and conserve the unique trout fishery in the Fall River Complex.
