American River

The American river has three main forks—the South, Middle and North—flow through the Sierra foothills and converge east of Sacramento into Folsom lake. Most everyone fishes the Lower American which flows from Folsom Dam to Sacramento flowing into the Sacramento river. The American River watershed offers fishermen a wide range of experiences. Stripers, Salmon, Steelhead, and Shad are the most sought after.
