Hi, I'm going to Kernville for a few days. And I would like to go out to sea to fish. I have a fishing gaff in my gear. I have AFTCO Tapered Fiberglass, large model, 4'. Can it be used in this region. Will there be any problems?

Net, yes. Gaff, no.

Restrictions: It is unlawful to: Snag, spear, gaff, net, trap, club, shoot or ensnare any freshwater game fish. A hand-held landing net may be used to land a legally hooked fish. A gaff may not be used to land salmon, steelhead or other freshwater game fish in inland or ocean fisheries.
