Special Closures for Thermal Refugia in Klamath River Watershed
A 200-foot radius* at the confluence of each of the following waters with the Klamath River is Class A:
Water
Hunter Creek
McGarvey Creek

*  Pursuant to Fish and Game Code 5653(d) it is unlawful to possess a vacuum or suction dredge in areas, or in or within 100 yards of waters, that are closed to the use of vacuum or suction dredges. Therefore, the effective closure at thermal refugia locations is a 500-foot radius from the center-line of the confluence of the tributary stream with the mainstem river.
