* California and Oregon record catch and effort by angler day.  Washington records catch and effort by angler trip, although the majority of trips are equal to one day. With very infrequent exceptions, the duration of Oregon recreational fishing trips by private anglers and by charter anglers is 24 hours or less, and encompasses one day of fishing activity.
** California catch is summarized by CRFS Sampling District. For a description, see:  California Recreational Fisheries Survey Districts
Private boat estimates for CPUE are not available by species for California.
