While Salmon fishing is closed from November 1st through December 31st along many areas of the American River. It continues to remain open on the section of The American River below the SMUD power-line at the southwest boundary of Ancil Hoffman Park in Carmichael, across the river from Rancho Cordova’s Hagan Community Park.
These scenes captured yesterday, were taken along that stretch of The American River Parkway.
The drought has impacted the river’s flow significantly. As the 3 fishermen in the pictures below, actually walked from one side of the river to the other, with their waistlines barely wet.
