Clear Lake hitch
Registration open for 2nd Annual Native Fishes Symposium: Clear Lake, California

This year the spotlight falls on fish native to the Clear Lake Basin. We have several excellent speakers lined up to cover topics ranging from the status, management and biology of Clear Lake Hitch to lampreys in the Clear Lake Basin (as well as discussions on several other species in between). The Workshop will include a half-day of presentations on the afternoon of April 4th, and on April 5th, a half-day of hiking along local creeks observing native fishes as they compete their spawning migrations. We will be taking over a campground and hosting a BBQ dinner on the evening of April 4th. 

New Cal-Neva Small Project Grant Program

The Cal-Neva Chapter of AFS has created a 'Small Grants Program' to provide funding to fisheries-related projects in California and Nevada.  Our goal is to fund at least two grants, for a total of $3,000 across all grants.  This money can be used to get a project started or to supplement funding from other sources.  We are currently accepting applications and the deadline is March 1, 2019.
