Eastern Sierra Wardens to Conduct Wildlife Checkpoint

Contacts:
Lt. Bill Dailey, CDFW Law Enforcement, (760) 872-7360
Kyle Orr, CDFW Communications, (916) 322-8958

The California Department of Fish and Wildlife (CDFW) will be conducting a wildlife checkpoint operation to promote safety, education and compliance with laws and regulations.

CDFW wardens will be conducting the inspection on westbound Highway 108, 1.5 miles east of the Inyo/Mono county line on Monday, Sept. 22, from 8 a.m. to 2 p.m.

The wildlife checkpoint is being conducted to protect and conserve fish and wildlife, to encourage safety and sportsmanship by promoting voluntary compliance with laws, rules and regulations through education, preventative patrol and enforcement.

CDFW reminds hunters to make sure they are familiar with all game laws before entering the field. View California’s hunting and fishing regulations by visiting https://www.wildlife.ca.gov/Regulations.

Deer tags need to be checked carefully as local wardens have been finding hunters with D Zone tags hunting in the premium X Zone areas.

All anglers and hunters will be required to stop and submit to an inspection. CDFW officers will also be providing informative literature about invasive quagga mussels and New Zealand mud snails.
