In Register 74, No. 3, major substantive changes have been made to former Sections 1.05 through 98.8 of Part 1, Division 1, Title 14, dealing with sport fishing regulations of the commission. Previous Chapters 1, 2, and 3 of Part 1, which constituted the aforementioned sections, have been repealed and replaced with Chapters 1 through 5. The former Chapter 4, concerning commercial fish, can now be found as Chapter 6. Former Chapter 5, concerning capture, transportation, possession and sale of live freshwater fish for bait for profit, can now be found as Chapter 7, and former Chapter 6, containing miscellaneous regulations, can now be found as Chapter 8.
The new sport fishing regulations cannot directly be compared with the previous regulations on a section-by-section basis. In the new format the regulations are broken into Chapter 1, General Provisions and Definitions; Chapter 2, Statewide Regulations for Fishing and Frogging in Inland Waters; Chapter 3, Inland Water Fishing; Chapter 4, Ocean Fishing; and Chapter 5, Reptiles and Amphibians.
The basic objective in the new sport fishing regulations format is to divide the state into eight sport fishing districts, each containing certain common characteristics for all waters within it. Consequently, one should now first determine the sport fishing district containing the water of interest, and look within that district's regulations for general seasons, bag limits and methods of take applicable to that district. Review should then be made of the special regulations contained in that district for any exceptions which may apply. Chapters 1 and 2 contain certain provisions, definitions and regulations for fishing and frogging in the inland waters which are applicable to all districts other than the Ocean and San Francisco Bay District.
