Hi everyone. Maybe I'm getting old but I can't seem to figure out if rock crabs are open to catch because of the domoic acid. I know that dingies are okay in certain areas but I can"t find info on rock crabs. I usually go to Fort Point but haven't been since then closure for crabs first happened. Thanks in advance, Ed.

Hey there! Rock Crab recreational fishery is open statewide, just be wary of consuming the butter of the crab, as that's where toxins are going to be concentrated. But as long as they measure 4" and up, they're good to go. The season for dungeness ends today for the rest of California (Mendo and Humboldt county) until November.

Any fish being caught there? Was thinking of possibly going there the Sunday after the kids derby in San Rafael.

there's jacksmelt being caught there right now, and the usual variety of perch/rockfish caught around the pilings.

People next to the pier fishing off the beach at Crissy Field have been catching perch and halis as well.
