Elk Grove Park Wildlife Protection

Fishing Moratorium

The Cosumnes CSD will enact a temporary ban on fishing in Elk Grove Park Lake from June 3 through November 18, 2019. Fishing is being prohibited during this 6-month period to allow the District an opportunity to develop a wildlife protection plan.

The wildlife in Elk Grove Park - primarily ducks and geese - are being injured, and in some cases killed, by improperly discarded fishing-related debris.
