Kid's Adventure Day was a hit once again! We hosted 34 kids each day, and a good time was had by all! Special thank you to Pat Loomis and Fort Hope, as well as all of our club volunteers. [gallery ids="479,480,481,482,483,484,485,486,487,488,489,490"]
Assemblymember Bill Quirk has introduced AB2787 that will make it impossible to purchase lead fishing weights and sinkers that are approximately 1.75 ounces or less. Widely considered “a solution in search of a problem,” the proposed legislation will hurt California anglers without protecting California fish and wildlife. In fact, as fishing license sales decline due to increased cost, money spent on conservation programs around the state will drop. Click here to sign the petition.

The Modern Fish Act aims to improve access to America's federal waters and promotes the conservation of natural marine resources. The bill is designed to provide federal managers with the tools to effectively manage 11 million recreational saltwater anglers in a different way than commercial fishermen.
