    Thanks all!
    A few were throwing hardware, I did not see them hookup or catch anything. All activity were either on fly or drifting bait. Those fly fishing, were hooking up several times.

    American River opener report

    Got to Sailor Bar early, about the 4th person to the area. Fished 5 hours among the crowd that joined. Saw 3 landed, 1 half pounder, 1 wild I believe, and 1 hatchery. No action for me at the bar, so I headed downstream, carefully walked around the redds. Hooked 2, landed 1 on roe. A very skinny hatchery hen, just a hair under 28".
