What is CARF?

The California Association for Recreational Fishing (CARF) is a grass-roots organization of fresh water recreational fishermen and businesses whose mission is to protect & preserve freshwater recreational fishing in the State of California. Read more about us here.

What’s at Stake?

As a result of new regulations drafted by the California Department of Fish and Wildlife, fish stocking could be a thing of the past once costly regulations are mandated for every fresh water hatchery and stocking pond. This could have a crippling effect on California’s recreational fishing industry. Read more about what’s at stake.
