Despite news reports regarding the recent closings of several fishing areas throughout the area, popular restaurant, El Segundo Fish Co, is again serving steelhead and wild salmon. The California Fish and Game Commission, located in Sacramento ordered the closures of the Russian and American Rivers in Northern California as well as hundreds of smaller areas along the coast.

The closings were ordered amidst concerns that the sustained drought would lower water levels significantly. The belief is that with lower water levels, anglers may trample spawning beds that would ordinarily be located in safer, deeper waters. The emergency action was specifically undertaken to preserve salmon and steelhead trout populations though fishing for other fish species was similarly barred as further protection for these fish.
