The California Department of Fish and Wildlife’s (CDFW) Bay Delta Region is relocating its headquarters — including its License Sales Office — from Napa to Fairfield in June.
CDFW’s License Sales Office along the Silverado Trail in Napa will close permanently on Wednesday, June 13 at 4:30 p.m. CDFW’s new License Sales Office in Fairfield will open to the public Friday, June 15 at 8 a.m. Licenses can also be purchased anytime online at www.ca.wildlifelicense.com/InternetSales.
The new address is 2825 Cordelia Road, Suite 100, Fairfield, CA 94534. The public service hours will remain the same, Monday through Friday, 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. with license sales ending at 4:30 p.m. The main office phone number will change to (707) 428-2002 beginning June 15.
While CDFW will continue to maintain some operations at the Napa location, including the Silverado Fisheries Base, which raises trout and inland salmon, all public operations will cease June 13. Public services such as the sale of fishing and hunting licenses, bear and deer tag validations, and commercial fishing license sales and service will only be available at the new Fairfield regional headquarters location starting June 15. Bear tooth extractions may be available at other CDFW office locations by appointment only. Please contact the Fairfield office in advance.
“The Napa Valley has been a wonderful, scenic home base for our Bay Delta Regional Office for some 40 years,” said Bay Delta Regional Manager Gregg Erickson. “The move to Fairfield, however, will benefit a majority of our customers and employees by creating an office location that is easily accessible to all. Our new, modern offices will allow us to provide a better customer service experience and a better workplace that our dedicated employees richly deserve.”
About 40 CDFW employees will relocate to the newly constructed office space in Fairfield from Napa and other locations in the region. These employees work in a variety of CDFW branches, divisions and programs, including Administration, License and Revenue, Cannabis, Habitat Conservation, Fisheries Management and Wildlife Management.
CDFW’s Bay Delta Region encompasses 12 counties in northern California and is one of seven CDFW regions in the state.
