carp fishing central valley California 6 Years, 11 Months ago Karma: 0
I am fishing for carp for over 30 years in Long Island, NY, in South Florida and now I got my fishing license in California where I live. In the fishing regulations is mentioned only the grass carp which has to be released immediately. But how about the mirror carp, the common carp.
Is any carp fisherman from Central Valley (Sacramento) who can help me?

Common Carp are listed in the "other species" section of CA DFG regulations.

Other species of fish may be taken in any number and at any time of the year by angling, except for closures and restrictions listed under district special regulations.

and

2.25. Bow and Arrow Fishing.

Bow and arrow fishing is permitted only for the taking of carp, goldfish, western sucker, Sacramento blackfish, hardhead, Sacramento pikeminnow and lamprey, all year, except in:

and you correct:

5.37. Grass Carp.

(a) No grass carp may be taken or possessed at any time, except that any grass carp inadvertently taken must be immediately returned unharmed to the water.
(b) Exception for Siskiyou and Shasta Counties for any waters, within the Sacramento River drainage above and including Lake Shasta: All grass carp taken shall be killed immediately by removing the head and shall be retained by the angler. The angler shall notify the department that he/she has taken and possesses a grass carp by calling the department's telephone number (1-530-225-2278) as soon as possible, but not more than 24 hours after taking the grass carp.


So as long as the body if water you are fishing in has no special regulations, and no Grass Carp, its game on with a hook and line.
Pay special attention to the regulations for the body of water you are at. As an example, here in the lower Yuba there is a population of big beautiful common carp, however it is Salmon and Steel-head habitat, single barbless hook, artificial lure only, limit one hatchery trout, one hatchery steel-head. If I tossed a baited hook into that water DFG would hand me my own a$$. You can get a reg. book anywhere licenses are sold.
