California Inland Fisheries Foundation, Inc., (CIFFI), is a volunteer operated, tax deductible 501 C3 non-profit foundation, incorporated in the State of California, dedicated to the enhancement of freshwater angling opportunities. The cooperative efforts between CIFFI and the California Department of Fish and Game, and many partners, provide necessary funding to sustain multiple species of fish in California’s lakes and reservoirs. Founded in 1992, CIFFI is a success story in cooperative fishery management, beginning with Project Kokanee, and now providing assistance to many other projects.
Fisheries for NOW... and the Future!
The first egg harvest will be held on Tuesday, 9/30/14 at Stampede. We will meet between 6:30 and 6:45 AM at the staging area on Hwy 89.
From Interstate 80 take Hwy 89 towards Sierraville, about 8 miles from Truckee is the Penny Pines Plantation on the right at the top of the hill, also on the left side of the road is a garage with a metal roof. We usually car pool since the road is rough and some do not want to take their own rigs down. When you see the Sierra county sign the staging ares is at the top of that hill. If you have waders or rubber gloves please bring them.
HEY CIFFI VOLUNTEERS!
California Dept of Fish and Wildlife is looking for volunteers to help with some hatchery projects, here’s DFW’s Kasie Barnes to tell you about her needs:
CA DFW VOLUNTEER REQUEST: Due to the drought, American River Trout Hatchery has turned off the water to their raceways and dried up their hatchery for the first time in decades. This has revealed some opportunities for improving the infrastructure of the hatchery holding facilities, including a new layer of sealant for the raceways and holding ponds.
Saturday, August 30, 2014 - The Sixth Annual CALIFORNIA INLAND FISHERIES FOUNDATION, INC./Project Eagle Lake Trout Family Fun Fall Fundraising Festival was held at Arnold’s Eagle Lake RV Park & Store, Spalding Tract, Susanville.
The size of the crowd continues to grow each year, probably because participants anticipate an enjoyable day in the Park and they’re inviting friends and relatives!
A few items have been mailed since the first of the year...the 2014 CIFFI Update brochure, the Derby Postcard and your 2014 Membership cards that was purchased at the 2014 ISE Show in Sacramento.
