Nov. 15 is the date that the State of California closes most of its Sierra streams, creeks and rivers to fishing for the 2007 fishing season.
Those waters will not re-open to fishing again until the last Saturday in April of 2008.
That is a long time from now. So, the next few days will be your last opportunity to fish those types of moving waters in the Golden State for quite a while.
Starting Nov. 16, you'll be restricted to fishing only California's open lakes and reservoirs until that magical day in late April.
And as a special reminder, also remember that all of the applicable, open waters in Inyo and Mono Counties (ie: The Twin Lakes area, the June Lake Loop, Convict Lake, the Mammoth Lakes area, Crowley Lake, etc. ) will also close for 2007 on Nov. 15.
So, if you're not into ice fishing during the long winter months, you had better hustle. You only have a few days left to get in all the Sierra stream fishing that you can, until next April.
And, as a special word to the wise, when you go, be sure to dress warm! You'll need it!
