Our MOTTO "Dedicated to Preserve, Protect and Enhance Striped Bass" means that although we enjoy our sport fishing, we want to protect and enhance our fishery to insure that future generations will have a chance of catching this great sport fish... the STRIPED BASS
The California Striped Bass Association (CSBA) originated with a Chapter in Stockton, California on April 14, 1974 and remains the oldest fresh-water fishing club in the state of California. The CSBA is a non-profit organization to preserve, conserve and enhance striped bass while promoting recreational sport fishing, environmental awareness and good fellowship. CSBA is one of the largest and most active fishing clubs in California's Central Valley.
In addition to the original Stockton chapter, other chapters have been established in Modesto, West Delta, Isleton, Sacramento, Fresno, Colusa, and Ukiah. A State Board, which is composed of three members from each chapter, is the governing body for all nine chapters. The chapters have activities throughout the year for members such as derbies, potluck dinners, picnics, workshops, seminars and fundraising activities. A monthly chapter bulletin is sent to each member informing them of the monthly general meeting, the program, matters of interest affecting the fishery, chapter activities and a fishing report. Meetings vary with guest speakers, films, and fishing seminars. Each chapter conducts or participates in free children's fishing days or derbies. Some chapters grant scholarships for students studying for careers in fish and wildlife vocations.
CSBA also works with other fishing groups on legislative matters affecting the fishery, water quality problems, etc. We also work with the California Department of Fish and Wildlife and state legislators making our ideas, views, and suggestions known.
