California stream fishing season comes to an end Nov. 15

It’s nearing that time of the season where anglers will exchange their tackle boxes, fly rods and fishing poles for ski, snowboard and ice climbing equipment. Nov. 15 is the last day in California for fishing in most of the Sierra streams, creeks and rivers to fishing for the 2007 fishing season. The exception here is Lake Tahoe itself, where one can fish year-round if one is so inclined.

Most other waterways, however, will not re-open to fishing again until the last Saturday in April of 2008. The next few days will be your last opportunity to fish those types of moving icy 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, where thousands get together with friends and family to catch the first big one of the season.

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.
