I called DFW today. Was informed by the person answering the phone that Salmon is closed but Rockcod was opened.

This is from the CDFW website last revised Feb 29, 2020

"The recreational fishery for rockfish (Sebastes species) is open year-round to divers and shore-based anglers. This fishery is closed to boat-based anglers from January 1, 2020 through April 30, 2020. Take of these species is prohibited seaward of the 30 fathom depth contour (180 feet), as defined in federal regulations (50 CFR Part 660, Subpart C)"

This is also from the CDFW website last revised Feb. 29, 2020

This fishery is currently open for boat-based angling.

Some reports of enforcing shelter in place orders, If you are not of same household or alone you may get cited by sheriff. This is SF bay area, Also commercial fishing is allowed.

    Moved in with my buddy a month ago but haven't been able to change my address since DMV is closed..... Or at least that's the excuse you can use.
