Was wondering if there is any stretch of the American River that can be hunted publicly? Anywhere from the upper sections down to the lower section below Nimbus.

I've spent countless hours fishing on the lower section watching ducks fly within feet of me wish I knew a place to hunt near by.

Pretty sure there are no firearms allowed in the American Parkway period.

Fish on!

The American River Parkway is part of the Sacramento County Parks System the following is an excerpt from the regs:

No person other than peace officers in the discharge of their duties shall use, maintain, possess, fire, or
discharge any firearm, air gun, spring gun, bow and arrow, slingshot, or any other weapon potentially
dangerous to wildlife or human safety, except in areas, at times, and under conditions designated by the
director for such use. A violation of the provisions of this section is a misdemeanor. (SCC 576 15, 1983.)

I have no clue what the exceptions are but I suspect they may be talking about sanctioned events.

Hunting is allowed in the Auburn State rec area. Here is the website I found. Not 100% clear if water fowl can be hunted there or not. Does anyone know for sure. Here is the link I found.

the link you provided list the species you can hunt there.... waterfowl are not listed... so you can't hunt them there for whatever reason... good luck!!!!
