is it legal to trap bluegills in California???
Ok, I looked up the DFG and reg 2.09. It states only the legal size landing nets. You can check it out at:
Hope this helps.
4.05. Bait Fish Capture Methods.
(a) Approved bait fish may be taken only by hand, with a dip net, or with traps not over three feet in
greatest dimension. Such bait fish may not be purchased, bartered, sold, transferred or traded; or
transported alive from the location where taken. Any other species taken shall be returned to the
water immediately. Traps need not be closely attended. Dip net use: A dip net must be hand held, and
the motion of a dip net shall be caused only by the physical effort of the operator. A dip net may not be
moved through the water by any mechanical force or motorized device.
(b) Within the area bounded by Highway 111 on the north and east and Highway 86 on the west and
south, approved bait fish may be taken only with dip nets with diagonal mesh size one inch and
greater, or by traps in water greater than four feet in depth. Traps may not exceed three feet in
greatest dimension. Approved bait fish may not be taken by hand within this area.
I stand corrected. lol
