Department of Fish and Game's Newly-Expanded Tracks Magazine Lures Anglers

Contact: Conservation Education, (916) 653-6420

SACRAMENTO — A new, free publication about fishing California's inland waters is now available to anglers, the California Department of Fish and Game (DFG) announced today. The publication, called Tracks, includes a detailed description of most warm-water fish, and 30-page guide to every "fishable" body of water in California.

The magazine is an expansion of an existing DFG publication. Tracks began 15 years ago as a subscription-based newsletter for deer hunters. Then, in an effort to fill the information void for upland game hunters, Upland Game California magazine debuted in 1998. The response from hunters has been overwhelmingly positive, prompting the DFG to expand its outreach further to include waterfowl hunters and anglers. Rather than publish four individual magazines, the topics have been combined under the name Tracks.

Beginning this year, Tracks is being distributed as a quarterly hunting and fishing magazine. The spring 2001 issue focuses on fishing. The summer issue will feature big game, the fall issue will feature upland game, and the winter issue will focus on waterfowl hunting.

The magazines, available at DFG offices statewide, are free while supplies last. To be on the DFG mailing list to receive all four, send your name and mailing address to:
