hey guys. I'm moving to Sacramento next week and am looking to find some info on fishing the American below Folsom. I am thrilled to be able to explore the sierra lakes and both sides of the upper American when I have time but would like to take advantage of how close I am to the lower American. Any tips/advice on where I should go or what I should look for would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance. Hope everyone is enjoying this little preview of spring we are getting. Matt

You are on the right board, lot of local American river folks here. Welcome to Sacto!

When you say below Folsom do you mean between the Folsom damn and nimbus lake or American river from Nimbus dam to the Sacramento river?

Either way both stretches are not big Trout fisheries like the upper American in the Mountains. You will have several lakes within an hour or so drive that are stellar for trout!
