    That's when F&G will be running water through the Ladder to get the salmon to up the egg taking station. Sailor Bar will be fine unless we have tropical storms in October (I wish). Folsom lake is at about 50% and DWR will keep slowly draining it until the winter/spring storms come in. The flow out of Lake Natoma has been around 1800 CFS which is okay for that area. Also you are correct about Oct.31st as the last day to fish that section.

    The American is good in Oct and Nov. Fisherman show up more in Oct. I suggest looking up the regs if you're new to the area and not a local. I also don't fish the outlet...If you look up www.eregulations.com 'find your regs' above the map...click on the state you want-Calif...It has all the regs, then click & download Calif Fishing Supplement. Pg. 4 for the American Sec. 7.50(b)- 5 b.. barbless hooks only, 1 salmon, fishing open 7/16 to 10/31..from the gauging station cable crossing about 300 yards down-stream from the Nimbus Hatchery fish rack site to the SMUD power line crossing at the southwest boundary of Ancil Hoffman Park....Sec. 5 c, d says barbed hooks ok, 1 salmon, from Ancil Hoffman to the mouth or Discovery Park 7/16 to 12/31. I don't know the Feather River but look up Pg. 5 Sec. 7.50(b) 68-D-closes 10/15, 1 salmon....68-E says it closes 12/16 1 salmon. Wait until Oct to scout and fish and get there early, it's too hot.. Good Luck!
