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 Wildlife, 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!
February is Stocked with Fishing Opportunities
CDFW hatchery trucks are continuing to roll
CDFW scientists are working hard to maintain and restore fisheries around the state, including endangered coho salmon along the coast. CDFW's hatchery staff works year-round to help ensure healthy fisheries and ample fishing opportunities for California anglers. Our hatchery trucks continue to roll and stock fish. February is a great time to target urban, suburban and low-elevation waters for trout and bass. If you need a little motivation to wet a line, check out some of California's best winter fishing destinations below.
