American River Fishing Report

American River - Sacramento, CA (El Dorado County)

by California Delta Chambers & Visitors Bureau

Salmon fishing has been very slow on the American river with only a couple taken on the opening weekend at Sunrise and the Nimbus Basin a Mepp’s Flying C’s and Blue Fox spinners. The better bet is to hit the water early and target striped bass by tossing Pencil Poppers and Zara Spooks at a variety of locations from Howe Avenue to Sailor’s Bar. expect to hook stripers in the 18 to 26 inch range, up to an occasional fish weighing 15 pounds or better. Releases from nimbus Dam are 5,000 CFS.
