    Hi all - I'm new to this site so hopefully, these questions haven't been anwsered before, but here goes:

    1) What is the bag limit for catfish over at the Firebaugh canals? (if there is any)

    2) Another friend of mine, had mentioned using corn was illegal (to catch carp). I know chumming is illegal - is it illegal to use corn at the canals?

    3) Is it ok to use a 2 rod (with the 2 rod stamp) over at the canals?


    Sorry if these are newbie questions. Thanks in advance.

    Welcome to the BOC .... We have a good following of folks in your area, and they may be able to help with limits.... corn is great for carp... and anywhere on lakes and streams you can use two poles if you've got the stamp.....

    There is no limit on catfish, you can use corn as long as it is on your hook, and yes you can use two poles with stamp.
    Welcome to BOC. I am here in Fresno and fish Mendota area a lot. We will be having the annual Mendota Gathering April 17th-20th if you would like to come out and check it out. Will be fun with lots of good people.
