Redwood National and State Parks are now accepting applications for “beach access permits.” These permits provide access to Freshwater and Hidden beaches for commercial fishing purposes.
A valid commercial fishing license, drivers license, $130, and some training is required to receive one of the limited passes.
Persons interested in applying can obtain application forms at the National Park Service Crescent City Information Center or by written request.
Applications must be received by close of business Friday, June 22.
The Northern California Coastal Heritage Wilderness Act calls for NPS to issue these permits to continue traditional commercial surf fishing.
