DFG Publishes Printable and Interactive Steelhead Zone Maps to Assist AnglersThe Department of Fish and Game (DFG) has created and posted two different Steelhead Report and Restoration Card (SHRRC) location code maps to help anglers easily identify location code boundaries and accurately report their catch.

The newly available maps include a printable pocket guide for use in the field and an interactive, web-based, map that not only allows anglers to identify location code boundaries, but also helps them explore potential fishing areas within each location code.

Additional layers available on the interactive map can be used to help identify fishable waters, satellite images, topography, roads, and more.

A list of location code descriptions has also been posted to accompany these maps or act as stand-alone reference.

Both maps and location code descriptions can be found by visiting the SHRRC website at www.dfg.ca.gov/steelheadcard.

Steelhead are carefully monitored by DFG and have special fishing regulations. Anglers are responsible for knowing these regulations.

All wild steelhead caught must be released unharmed. Wild steelhead are identified by their intact adipose fin. Hatchery steelhead are missing their adipose fin and have a scar in place of the missing fin.

Anglers must have a valid California fishing license as well as a non-transferable Steelhead Fishing Report and Restoration Card in their possession when fishing for steelhead.

Complete fishing regulations can be found at http://dfg.ca.gov/regulations/
