The California Department of Fish and Wildlife (CDFW) are looking for volunteer assistance with an
angling study to be performed on the Yuba, Feather, and American rivers. This is a great opportunity
to learn first-hand some of the ways we manage fisheries in California. The purpose of the study is to
determine the affect different angling rigs have on the frequency of foul-hooking on captured salmon.
Volunteers are needed for one day of angling for a five hour period. Volunteers will be required to
use provided CDFW spin fishing equipment and adhere to the angling protocol and techniques
dictated by the study. Volunteers must be prepared to transport themselves to and from the study
location, commit to an entire day’s study effort (5 hours of angling as well as additional time for
training and orientation), and provide their own food and water. CDFW personnel will direct and
accompany the volunteers during the study.
The study will be performed on weekdays from the middle of October, 2014 through the end of
December, 2014. To sign up, please email Cameron Zuber at and
provide the following information:
 Name
 Phone number/email
 Preferred dates
 Short description of your angling experience
If you are scheduled for the study, please be aware that a specific meeting location may be
determined a week or a few days before your study date. To maximize the success of this study we
need to select appropriate locations and unfortunately we cannot control where the fish are located.
We appreciate your understanding and thank you for your interest in volunteering for this study.
