    Agenda Item 3 – Central Valley Sport Fishing

    This item will serve as the final adoption hearing for 2021 Central Valley sport fishing regulations. The Commission generally adopts Central Valley sport fishing regulations on an annual basis to align state regulations with federal fishery management goals set by the Pacific Fishery Management Council (PFMC). At their December 2020 meeting, the Commission authorized publication of a notice of proposed changes to Sacramento River fall-run Chinook salmon (SRFC) size, bag, and possession limits for the American, Feather, Mokelumne and Sacramento rivers that were intentionally broad to encompass possible PFMC 2021 recommendations for SRFC stocks.

    Under this agenda item DFW will recommend for Commission consideration of adoption specific size, bag and possession limits, and season dates for Sacramento River fall-run Chinook (SRFC) salmon based on the PFMC final recommendations.

    Jonathan Nelson of DFW’s Anadromous Fisheries Branch will open this item with a presentation which will first provide mapping of the four rivers covered under Central Valley sport fishing regulations – the American, Mokelumne, Feather, and Sacramento rivers. Mr. Nelson will then remind the Commission that the bag and possession limits adopted in 2020 for the American, Mokelumne, and Sacramento was a daily bag of two and a possession limit of four, while the 2020 bag and possession limit for the Feather River was three and six, respectively.

    Following a quick reminder of the three regulatory options DFW had previously brought forth for 2021 (See April 2021 meeting below), Mr. Nelson will state that, with the PFMC final recommendations now in hand, DFW is recommending a bag limit of two fish and a possession limit of four of any size salmon for all four rivers in 2021. Mr. Nelson should then close by stating that DFW is recommending the same season dates as 2020.
