California Posts Stream Restrictions Due to Drought and Heat

The California Department of Fish and Wildlife (CDFW) is requesting that anglers voluntarily avoid fishing after 12 p.m. on select waters throughout California. This approach directs anglers to focus their angling during the cooler “hoot owl” periods of the day when water temperatures are lowest. These voluntary angling recommendations will be triggered by ongoing monitoring of select fisheries across California. When these select fisheries begin to achieve sustained afternoon water temperatures exceeding 67° Fahrenheit, CDFW will add the water(s) to a “Hoot Owl” watchlist below and will work with local stakeholders and CDFW staff to help with outreach to inform anglers. Although these are not legal angling closures, CDFW strongly recommends adhering to the recommendations for the specific waters listed until removed when conditions for those waters improve. Note: this list is not static and will be updated as conditions change with waters being added and removed.

Current list of waters:

  • The Lower Owens River (Pleasant Valley Dam downstream to Five Bridges)
  • Hot Creek
  • Mill Creek (Walker Basin)
  • Lower Rush Creek (From Grant Lake to Mono Lake)
  • Bridgeport Reservoir
  • Deep Creek
  • Crowley Lake
  • Truckee River (From Lake Tahoe to Nevada Stateline)
  • East Walker River (From Bridgeport Reservoir to Nevada Stateline)
  • Upper Truckee River (From Lake Tahoe to headwaters, including tributaries)
