    I can’t think of any relevant to fishing. Seems like all our current species are caught in Mexico as well.

    Thoughts?

    Perfect disguise for all the Californian's migrating to Mexico would be a sea lion suit. When you get there you just sell the suit to a bad hombre heading to Alta California. He then loads the seal suits pockets with contraband before heading to the land of milk and honey and you have established international trade.

    Evidence suggest that the delta smelt might be an invasive species.

    Even though scientist disagree lovely California waste millions of gallons of water to help “protect” it.

    Maybe I’m slightly bias on this one.

    They still have them in the Malibu Creek, and you hear about them in other north and south during really wet years.
