Results of the 2015 economic survey of Central Valley anglers
Details:
  • Description:
    "In 2015, we conducted a survey of adult California license holders who fish on the Sacramento River system to assess their interest in pursuing new salmon fishing opportunities above dams that could occur as a result of improvements in fish passage. About 76% of Sacramento River anglers - 34% comprising anglers who had fished for salmon in the past year and 42% who had not - indicated that they may be interested. These anglers tend to be younger and better educated than non-interested anglers. They also participate more in activities such as fish planting, visiting Central Valley dams and fish hatcheries, fishing tournaments and fishing clubs. Whether angler interest in new salmon fishing opportunities above dams is actually realized depends on factors such as: (1) fishing and habitat conditions including water quality and flow, (2) regulations, (3) distance between angler's home and the fishing site, and (4) availability of amenities such as boat ramps (which are commonly used by salmon anglers but not common above dams). To the extent that a newly established salmon fishery attracts many new anglers, it could adversely affect the aesthetic conditions (scenic beauty, peace and quiet, lack of crowding) valued by anglers who currently fish above dams"--page 3.
