View Full Version : Carrying on levees while fishing?

01-07-2011, 2:33 PM
I fish in on the levees in sherman island rio vista area sometimes at night.Im wondering if i can UOC/LOC or CC in this area.

Im not grasping the whole exemption to the concealed weapons law for hunters and fisherman.

I rather LOC than CC unloaded. PLEASE:confused: HELP

The answer is that it depends on where you are, exactly.

Check for yourself, and take this for just what it is, "internet advise".

That's looks to be an unincorporated area, if it is, (you need to be sure) you can carry concealed (loaded) while you are fishing, and not up on the roadway.

That's my assesment.

Thanks again.

It looks like CDFG Controls that area. The monster strippers are around there, 20 years ago we were catching 20 to 40 ponders at this time of year, the big ones bit on shad. I was always armmed when I fished there, but things change, call dfg, here's the SI link;

It looks like CDFG Controls that area.

If he's fishing where I think he is, I don't think that's in the "Lower Sherman Island Wildlife Area (see page 39 of .pdf [or other maps in doc]).

There's very little shore fishing access in the LSIWA.


But I have always been interested in any case law on this exemption:

"The prohibition from carrying a concealed handgun does not apply to licensed
hunters or fishermen while engaged in hunting or fishing, or while going to or
returning from the hunting expedition (PC section 12027)."

Page 36 here:

As cited earlier...
