It's not a federal or any other type of crime to collect in California. The basic rule is you need a fishing license to collect. There are bag limits and you may not sell any wild caught herps. But if you are just collecting a few for yourself for pets it's ok and you can export them too but not for commercial purposes, then it would become a federal crime, a violation of the Lacey Act. Any sporting goods store can sell you a fishing license and the should have the regulations there too.
Do a search on CA hunting laws and you should be able to find the CA Fish and Game Website. You will need Acrobat Reader to view the laws and you should be able to download it from their site.
Also here is a phone number for CA Dept. Fish and Game License and Revenue Branch (916)227-1305.

PS some areas like State Parks and species like San Francisco Gartersnake that are completely offlimits to collecting.
