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.

Thank you to everyone who attended 24th Annual California Inland Fisheries Dinner Sat., Nov.7. Special Thanks Awards went to Richard Burton - Honda Marine, Travis Morgan - Guns Fishing & Other Stuff & Cliff & Shirley Spediacci for Project Eagle Lake Trout efforts. Volunteer of the Year was Larry Aaker. Great crowd, great food, fun games & raffles!! Next year - Nov. 5th!!!
As you are aware, Eagle Lake is experiencing low water conditions; more so this year than in any other year. Launching at Spalding Tract has been impossible for several years and fortunately good fishing has continued because of the accessibility of launching at the South End Marina.
Sept. 5, 2015 - A letter was received from Stafford Lehr, Chief, Calif. Dept. of Fish & Wildlife Inland Fisheries Branch! This letter was read to the folks gathered at the CIFFI/PELT Sept. 5, 2015 fundraising event at Eagle Lake. We sincerely thank the CDFW for their on-going support.
A few items have been mailed since the first of the year...the CIFFI Update brochure, the Derby Postcards and your Membership cards that was purchased at the ISE Show in Sacramento.
