Jess Ranch just delivered 1,200 pounds of rainbow trout on Thursday, June11th. Good looking fish, but no trophy trout included in this batch.

  • We have been experiencing a persistent problem with people overfishing our panfish…meaning crappie and bluegill. They fill grocery bags with 25 fish each, load the bags up into a day-pack, then take the bags to their vehicle where there is a 48 quart to 96 quart cooler waiting.

    Why don’t they concentrate on carp??? It’s too bad because this has now forced me to hire on an extra ranger just to monitor these people, reduce the take from 25 to 10…which 25 had been the limit for as long as I can remember. It’s too bad that a few ruin things for a lot.

    Now, I have also instructed my rangers in the bait and tackle shop to verify each California State Fishing License from now on rather than merely taking the individual’s word for it, and have more frequent permit checks along the shoreline. This is sad…and expensive at best, but obviously needs to be done.

    On a lighter note…the boys have put a dent in the carp population using bow-fishing techniques so, keep it up!
