Big Sur fishign regs

2 posts in this topic

Hey guys, I know nothing about fishing but my brother and I are planning a road trip to big sur to camp and fish during Christmas. I'm aware that the regs require fishing to remain on the West side of Highway 1 from Dec1 through the spring. However, whether or not you can keep the fish isn't clear.Is it only catch and release? Anyone know?

Closed to fishing all year. e-2 says Sat, Sun, Wed and legal holidays only. barbless and zero possesion.I've been fishing since the morning before I was born, have a Masters in Education, and cannot finger-out these regs!Call the Fresno DFG office or some Monterey area tackle shop.I still don't know why I read that you do NOT need a Steelhead Report Card.
