Calif. rivers and streams will close on Nov. 15

Don Quilici

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!
