I heard this meeting on Feb 2nd is going to be at 8am, VERY early for me, as I take my daughter to school, plus a 2hr drive to sac going to be rough to make it. :mad:

 

Thursday Feb. 2nd is "D" day for striped bass..

The Fish and Game Commission will hold a hearing on the DFG's proposed striped bass reg. changes on Thursday Feb. 2nd.

 

We have been working very hard on building a case against the proposed reg. changes along with scientific documentation to back up our position. At the meeting on Feb. 2nd, StriperFest, CSPA, CSBA and the Allied Fishing Groups would like as many fishing community members there as we can get! I have no idea why they haven't published an Agenda yet, so we don't know the start time. To be safe and I'd suggest that all who plan to attend be there by at least 8:00 AM. The address is:

Resources Building Auditorium

1416 Ninth Street

Sacramento, CA

The Security folks there can tell you where the Auditorium is within the Building.

 

The Resources Building takes up the whole block between "N" and "O" streets and "8th" and "9th" streets. This is just a couple blocks S/W of the Capitol Bldg. There's public parking around with in several blocks. Google downtown Sac parking to find the lots (garages). There will be two panels of speakers, (already made up) one for and one against. I would not expect anyone else to have more than about a minute (or less)to speak. Depending on the number of people, you may just be able to give your name and urge the Commission to vote the proposal down! Politeness and quiet is expected, loud comments on what someone says are not generally tolerated. (This is only guidance for those that have never been to a hearing before!) I hope to see lots of you there! A large turn out will speak louder than

http://blog.***********/stienstra/2011/12/14/salmon-flood-hatcheries-great-2012-predicted/#2133-4

 

 

Tim can you fix the link since its a news article?

 

Salmon have flooded into state and federal fish hatcheries in the past month. The key indicator, the arrival of two-year-old salmon, also predicts the ocean off the Bay Area coast will be full of fish next summer.

 

Trips to Nimbus Hatchery last week on the American River near Sacramento and to the Coleman National Fish Hatchery on Battle Creek near the Sacramento River unveiled great news for salmon, the people who fish for them, and those who love to eat them.

 

At Nimbus, adults and youngsters alike watched the salmon swim up the American River, jump up the fish ladders to the hatchery, and occasionally make spectacular jumps in the river. It’s the best show in years.

 

All the news is good.

 

At Coleman, 55,000 spawn-ready salmon returned to Battle Creek this fall, 42,000 to the hatchery, up from lows of 14,000 and 10,000, respectively in 2008, reported Brett Galyean at the hatchery.

 

The number of 2-year-old salmon, or jacks, which is used to predict next year’s run, has been mind-bending, 22,800, up from 721 in in 2009 and 5,500 in 2010.

 

This year’s egg take at Coleman was 13 million before they shut down the gates on the fish ladders. Those eggs are now being used to produce 12 million smolts, or juvenile salmon, which will be released in April.

 

Nimbus Hatchery on the American River had similar great news.

 

The hatchery has met its egg-take goal of 6.6 million, reported hatchery manager Paula Hoover, and plan to meet their goal of releasing 4 million salmon in the coming spring. The number of jacks was also up, with 4,000 more at this date compared to a year ago.

 

Most adult salmon are three and four years old. The number of jacks – the smaller 2-year-olds — is critical for federal and state biologists to plan next year’s season. The ratio is roughly 30 jacks to 1 adult. So large numbers of jacks now is an indicator of excellent ocean feed conditions and a big year for salmon in 2012.

 

“This year’s run is tremendous, 55,0000 to Battle Creek,” said Galyean at the Coleman hatchery. “I’ve been here four years, and you could add those years up and it wouldn’t add up to that.”

 

He called the jack return “extremely high.”

 

“It shows the ocean conditions are a lot better,” he said. “We use it as an indicator for next year’s return.”

 

Hoover at Nimbus was also thrilled.

 

“The return of jacks is quite high,” she said. “Our adult fish runs are about normal, not high or low,” and a normal year coming after the the declines of 2007-2009 is great news. “We’ve met the quota, made our production goals.”

 

Another significant note: Up north, a check with the huge fish hatchery near the Bonneville Dam on the Columbia River system showed similar large numbers of returning adult and jack salmon.

A little late for a reminder, but those that can go should do so. Has anyone here been to a CFGC meeting and know if the doors stay open so that a person can come and go as they please? I assume and hope that's the case, so I can check in periodically to see which item they're on. My guess is that they won't get to item 9 until after lunch, and may have planned for just that.

 

 

 

ps - If it goes late into the night stick around... tomorrow night there is a bar a few blocks away from the meeting that has a bikini bull riding contest. icon14.gif
