There are currently few locations to fish on the Cleveland. Many areas that do have fish are closely monitored to expand fish populations and encourage natural migration and breeding. As fish populations reach more sustainable numbers, the Cleveland may once again offer fishing options.   

Fishing on the Cleveland National Forest is regulated by the CA Dept of Fish and Game. A current valid California fishing license is required for all anglers over 16 years of age. Many of these can be purchased at your local sports and outdoors store. For more information, please see the Fishing in California on the Dept. of Fish and Wildlife website.
