Re: NFC: Re: California fish

Chris is right.  As near as I can tell, this is pretty much true of any 
state from the Rocky Mountain front west (Oregon may be an exception).  Too 
bad, but, like me, you're probably going to have to resolve yourself to 
keeping natives from other U.S. regions.  Not a big problem to me, because 
most of the fish that I'm interested in are from the eastern half of the 
country, anyway!

Well, except for a colorful species of sculpin that I once caught while 
fishing the California aqueduct.  I never bothered to id it, but it had a 
bright orange-red border on the dorsal fin.  Very nice.  Very much 
off-limits....strange to think that I could have legally killed it and fed 
it to my flowers, but I couln't keep it alive in an aquarium.  Oh, and then 
there are the desert pupfish...and the Sacramento perch...and one or two 
species of estuarine surfperch...
