Hey does anybody know what the fishing is like this time of year on the lower fork of the American River?

Red Hot for Steelies, great fishing for trout and a decent striper bite happens on the Lower American. Great Shad fishing during the runs. Do I even have to mention the Salmon Season? The Steelies time is now on the lower. Light gear, minicrawler and not standing around in one spot should produce. have fun out there.

Yea and with Folsom so low hopefully they wont release a massive amount of water hoping for a large snowpack and wreck the Stealhead season as they did in previous years. Maybe they have learned their lesson?
