I wanted to go fish at the Shanghai Bend, but wasn't too sure what street it is located at. I plan to fish from the bank so what street would I park my car and go?

I went there on Sunday expecting to see shad stacked up below some rapids because of low water conditions. The water did seem low, but I didn't see any rapids (not even close). Was the river altered somehow at that location in the recent past? If you do a youtube search for Shanghai Bend you'll find videos of jet boats jumping over the rapids. What gives?

Man that place looks killer for real. Anyone know its current status, like that actual falls. Is the river too low atm and it is just the middle channel or is it actually flowing over like in some of the videos I have seen? It looks super good for salmon also. Might have to make a trip up there next weekend. Going to Santa Cruz this weekend for some R & R. Might make it out for the twilight fishing trip with stagnaro charters. It is only 40$ for a sand dab trip. If i do go will post some pics for sure. If anyone is down to maybe car pool next weekend send me a Pm, we can figure out some details.

The falls collapsed a few years back


Fish on!

I was looking into fishing there as well, but sounds like the clay bottom of the river got washed out recently and the rapids are no more. There's some posts on the sniffer about it, or this link for ya:

As said above, the falls collapsed a couple years ago. Worst news of my fishing career. However, go in from the YC side,walk to the tailout of the chute and drop a grub under a bobber. Too easy
