California Department of Fish and Game Passport Program

We recently sent in our money to become an official passport station for the California Department of Fish and Game.  What is a passport station you may ask?  Here’s what I know so far, from  The program is free to participants and encourages all types of fishing, here’s a brief overview from their website…

To help highlight these many waters and to encourage people to more fully experience all the fishing opportunities that the Golden State has to offer, the California Department of Fish and Game has designed the California Fishing Passport program.

With this program, people will be challenged to fish their way around the state in search of 150 different fish and shellfish species.  And like traveler’s passport book, for each successful catch, participants will receive special stamps in their books to mark their accomplishments.  The California Fishing Passport program is one that will appeal to everyone.  From the first time angler who wants to feel the sensation of that first bite, to those who enjoy spending quality time in the outdoors fishing with friends and family, to those who wish to passionately pursue the wide variety of different and unique fishing opportunities that only California can offer… the California Fishing Passport challenge has something for everyone?  Completing this challenge will not be an easy endeavor and it will likely entail using a variety of different fishing methods along the way.  Everything from fly-fishing to deep sear to surf to spinning to trolling tackle and techniques will been encouraged.  Winners in the past have received Berkley/Abu Garcia/Stren Tackle Packages ($100 value) or Bass Pro Shops Gift Cards ($100 value):  For more information go to their website at
