I agree, be careful and be smart. If someone is really concerned about life safety in a certain area then it's probably best to not fish there. The code cited above is Sacramento County code. How that plays with the California Penal Code I can't say. Violation is a misdemeanor which under certain circumstances would be worth the risk. It looks to me as if this is aimed at hunting/poaching and wildlife harassment. The intent of the ordinance may not be to prevent someone from protecting themselves under the provisions of State law. But it is California, I'm surprised the carrying ccw provision for hunters and fisherman is still on the books. Who would have ever thought a fly fisherman would need to consider being armed... outside of Alaska of course.
