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 CIFFI/Project Eagle Lake Trout Traditional July 4th fundraising event was nothing short of exceptional! Held annually at the Eagle Lake RV Park Store in Spalding, this year's get-together was attended by nearly 400 participants. Everyone took part in the famous Star Spangled Banner kazoo salute led by Tim Noxon. Mike & Kate Arnold, owners of the Park and head of the "cooking crew" provided hot dogs, hamburgers, trimmings & great desserts.
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.
