Results of Ocean Access Protection Fund Donations (OAPF)

Posted on behalf of the LARRC Environmental Comettee:

“The Los Angeles Rod and Reel Club (LARRC) is pleased to announce the results of the solicitation campaign on behalf of the Ocean Access Protection Fund (OAPF).  Following the solicitation letter mailing in late March 2011, donations totaling $10,000 have been forwarded to OAPF.  Prior to the solicitation letter campaign, LARRC members had already donated $5,200.  The balance of $4,800 was
collected as of April 21, 2011.  The LARRC can be proud of its role in trying to mitigate the drastic affects of the MLPA process.  There is more to be done and your Environmental Committee will continue to work on your behalf.
Our Environmental Committee thanks all of our members who contributed.”

Save California’s Fishing

Oppose unfair licensing requirements and costly regulations

After more than 30 years, the California Department of Fish and Game is trying to require recreational fishermen to purchase a fishing license to catch privately stocked fish on private property as well as at private fee for fishing lakes – and proposing, unnecessary and very costly regulations that will be mandated for every fresh water hatchery, fish farm and nearly anybody that purchases and stocks fish in California.

Such regulations will put small business owners who stock fishing holes out of business – and deny access to recreational fishing! Without affordable local fishing, how long will it be before all the fish in California are GONE?

Please contact Governor Jerry Brown and the Department of Fish and Game today. Let them know that California’s economy can’t afford this plan! To do this, visit CARF’s “Take Action” page – Your voice needs to be heard – it’s quick and easy – and VERY IMPORTANT!
