CDFW's high public use areas, including visitor centers and license counters, are temporarily closed to help slow the spread of COVID-19 (coronavirus). Before heading to a CDFW facility, contact the regional headquarters office to determine if that facility is open.

On a hatchery fish, the adipose fin is removed, while a wild fish has an intact adipose fin. Since the 1970s, federal agencies have worked closely with states and treaty tribes in the Pacific Northwest to reverse the decline of native salmon populations.
Jul 21, 2020 · Fish-to-human transmission of this bacteria is rare and unlikely but there are several documented instances associated with immunocompromised people consuming infected raw fish and unpasteurized milk products. Hot Creek Hatchery in the eastern Sierra has tested negative for the bacteria and is still planting eight waters in Inyo and Mono counties.

Currently, the DNR has no backup plan to source eggs or hatchery stock from another location. “We’ll have to figure out if we can do something like that,” Wesley said. “On Lake Michigan, we have predator caps, and we mix and match species to stay within that cap, so we could stock extra chinook salmon. There are ways we could mitigate (the lack of a year class of steelhead). “One thing with steelhead is that some of our rivers are not stocked and get 100-percent wild runs, and where we do stock, about 30 percent of the runs are a result of natural reproduction. Every run also has fish from age 2-6, so there will still be some year classes available. … We often see year-class failure because of lake conditions or river conditions. Yes, this is widespread, but a lot of these rivers have poor year classes anyway. Nature adjusts and we might not even notice a missing year class.” Other fish stocking adjustments took place at the federal level, Wesley said. In recent years, the U.S. Fish...
One silver lining resulting from the recent crisis has been the number of people across the state who are getting out fishing, Wesley said. The stay-home order allows only essential people to leave home to go to work, but makes an exception for people to leave for recreational purposes, including fishing. “It’s crazy: We have more people fishing right now than we’ve had in years,” he said. “We just need people to remember to spread out.” That lack of adherence to social distancing guidelines led the state to shut down the popular Tippy Dam Recreation Area on the Manistee River, where anglers flock every spring to try for steelhead on their spawning run. The site is closed until further notice, with violations resulting in civil infractions and fines up to $500. Wesley said DNR conservation officers continue to monitor heavy-use sites around the state and give warnings when people are not practicing proper social distancing, although they often “bunch back up” soon afterward. “Then y...
Another step taken as a result of the coronavirus also affected a key project that aims to protect the Great Lakes from the spread of invasive species. In a move supported by a bipartisan coalition of state Legislative leaders, Whitmer also used line-item veto powers in a supplemental budget bill to direct $150 million to the coronavirus response. That included an $8 million budget item to support a beefed up barrier to block Asian carp at the Brandon Road Lock and Dam near Joliet, Ill., as MiBiz previously reported. The funds would have gone toward Illinois’ share of state matching funds needed for the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers to conduct a preliminary analysis and scoping of the project. Illinois had budgeted $2.5 million for its portion of the match. MUCC’s FitzGerald warned that additional budget cuts as a result of the coronavirus response and loss of state revenue were likely to affect every state department. He called on the DNR to “reassess the top priorities within divis...
