California Ocean Sport Fishing Regulations Update for August 14, 2005

The purpose of this email is to notify California's saltwater recreational anglers of upcoming regulation changes, including seasonal openings and closures, bag and size limit changes, depth and gear restriction changes, etc. This email has been formatted to be viewed in HTML.


Ocean Salmon

The recreational fishery for ocean salmon from Humbug Mountain (OR) to Horse Mountain (Humboldt county) is open from August 14 through September 11, 2005. The following regulations apply:

The daily bag and possession limit is two salmon of any species except coho (silver) salmon.
The minimum size limit is 24 inches total length.
Salmon may only be taken by angling as defined in Section 1.05. No sinkers or weights exceeding 4 pounds may be used, except that a fishing line may be attached to a sinker or weight of any size if such sinker or weight is suspended by a separate line and the fishing line is released automatically by a mechanical device from the sinker or weight when any fish is hooked.
North of Pt. Conception: No more than 2 single-point, single-shank barbless hooks shall be used and no more than 1 rod per angler when fishing for salmon or fishing from a boat with salmon on board.
The Klamath Control Zone (12 mile square centered on the mouth of the Klamath River) is CLOSED for the entire month of August
Ocean Boat Limits: Each angler aboard a vessel may continue to fish until the boat limit (combined daily bag limits of all anglers) has been attained. Once the vessel reaches shore, individual daily bag limits will apply. Charter boat operator(s) and crew members may not take fish that apply towards the boat limit of their passengers, but they may take fish for their individual bag limits provided their fish are kept separate from the passengerís fish.
NOTE: These special gear restrictions apply to each angler fishing for salmon or fishing from any boat or floating device with salmon on board.
