    Re: trotline/jugging in california

    Trotlining is good for the fisherman not so hot for swimmers or dog's playing in the water. If I go to the river and bank it I almost always find a line with to many hooks on it tied to a limb I toss the string in my trash bag and keep the terminal tackle if its nice. Jugging should be legal, where its legal you have to leave your name and info on the jugs.

    Re: trotline/jugging in california

    California is real stingy on what they will let you put in the water, after all they only let you have 1 rod with your license. Although I'm kinda glad they don't allow trotline/jugs in CA, I hear the litter and abandoned lines are a real problem in Texas.

    Re: trotline/jugging in california

    This pretty much sums it up. A rod and reel closely attended is required. There are a few exceptions for spear and bow fishing, and hand catching some bait fish species, but I think jugging is out.

    2.00. Fishing Methods -- General.


    • (a) Except as otherwise authorized, all fish may be taken only by angling with one closely attended rod and line or one hand line with not more than three hooks nor more than three artificial lures (each lure may have three hooks attached) attached thereto. Anglers in possession of a valid two-rod stamp and anglers under 16 years of age may use up to two rods in inland waters which regulations provide for the taking of fish by angling, except those waters in which only artificial lures or barbless hooks may be used. See District Trout, Salmon and Special regulations for exceptions.

    Question trotline/jugging in california

    I've been told by some game wardens that it is illegal, and by others that it is legal. I searched the word trotline on the dfg website and i got 0 search results. Also if anyone knows off hand where it talks about it in the regulations book that would be awsome. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Thanks in advanced,
