Permit to Receive Eggs (form 772)

Completion of an approved training program is a prerequisite for applying for a form 772 (Authorization to Transport and Rear Eggs and Fish). Once you have completed the form, please sign it and mail it to the appropriate address listed on page 2 of the form. Please allow 6 weeks to process your application.

It is advisable to work with your sponsoring organization (generally the fly-fishing club you are working with) when you complete the application form.

If approved, your application will be returned to you (or to your sponsoring club) prior to your receiving eggs.

For rainbow trout, please see the list of pre-approved trout release sites below.

Once the fish are released, this form must be completed and returned to your regional coordinator within 3 days of release. A fully completed 772 permit must be returned to CDFW (or your sponsor, at their request) within 3 days of release of your fish (or within 3 days of the last fish dying). A list of returned permits for this year can be found on the TIC blog. We suggest you keep a copy of the permit.
