These locations will be Martinez, Rio Vista, Sacramento and Yuba City/Colusa areas Item 9 on the agenda 9. DELTA FISHERIES MANAGEMENT POLICY Today’s Item Information ☒ Action ☐ Discuss a draft FGC Delta Fisheries Management Policy and potential repeal of FGC’s Striped Bass Policy. Summary of Previous/Future Actions  Delta Fisheries Forum May 24, 2017; Sacramento  WRC discussion Sep 20, 2018; WRC, Sacramento  Further WRC discussion Jan 10, 2019; WRC, Ontario  Today’s discussion May 16, 2019; WRC, Sacramento Background FGC adopted a Striped Bass Policy in 1996 focused on restoring and maintaining striped bass for recreational fishing opportunity (Exhibit 1). In Jun 2016, FGC received a regulation change petition from the Coalition for a Sustainable Delta and others requesting to increase the bag limit and reduce the minimum size limit for striped bass and black bass in the Sacramento-San Joaquin Delta (Delta) and rivers tributary to the Delta. The expressed intent of the petition was to reduce predation by non-native bass on fish that are native to the Delta and are listed as threatened or endangered under the federal or California endangered species acts, including winter-run and spring-run Chinook salmon, Central Valley steelhead, and delta smelt. While the petition was formally withdrawn prior to FGC action, FGC requested that WRC schedule a discussion to explore the issue more comprehensively, including a review of the existing FGC policy. WRC directed staff to hold a half-day forum focused on the State’s vision for managing fisheries in the Delta for the benefit of native fish species and sport fisheries, implementation of the State’s vision, and soliciting stakeholder input on potential actions FGC could consider related to this topic. Held on May 24, 2017 in Sacramento, the forum was publicized and open to the public. The forum included a state agency panel discussion, an overview of FGC’s policies and regulations for sport fisheries in the Delta, and a full group discussion. The discussion included two presentations by representatives for the original petition, consistent with direction provided by FGC. One of the recommendations that emerged from that forum was FGC adoption of a policy for fisheries management in the Delta that would provide science-based guidance to balance native fish needs with sport fishing opportunities in management decisions. The Coalition for a Sustainable Delta offered a proposed draft policy which, together with stakeholder input, formed the basis for the initial draft policy. At its Sep 2018 meeting and again in Jan 2019, WRC discussed the draft policy. In Jan, WRC directed FGC staff to review the comments to date and suggest revisions to the draft policy; those revisions are shown in the staff-revised draft policy in Exhibit 2, along with explanations for suggestions not integrated, for discussion today. Item No. 9 COMMITTEE STAFF SUMMARY FOR MAY 16, 2019 Significant Public Comments (N/A) Recommendation FGC staff: Review staff-recommended changes to the draft policy; solicit input and provide direction for any further revisions; and provide an opportunity for public review and input to refine the draft before WRC advances a recommendation to FGC. Exhibits 1. FGC Striped Bass Policy, adopted Apr 5, 1996 2. Draft Delta Fisheries Management Policy and response to comments, revised May 3, 2019 Committee Direction/Recommendation (N/A)
