Whether you want to power your way up and down the river or relax and fish from the bank the Sacramento River is the place to be. The Sacramento River in Shasta and Tehama counties is in pristine condition and provides public access to anglers and pleasure boaters just minutes from I-5. A Boating Information Sheet and a map are available for this river.
If you are looking for a drift boat experience or bank fishing head up to the Trinity River. Near the fishing resort town of Lewiston, the Nationally recognized Wild and Scenic Trinity River emerges clear and cold from Clair Engle Lake and Lewiston Lake into a mountain valley. Fishing opportunites abound on this river. A Boating Information Sheet and a map are available for this river.
Bring your boat out to the cool waters of Keswick Reservoir and fish until your heart is content. If trout are what you are looking for...this is the place. This is also an excellent place to simply float around and enjoy nature and wonderful views of Shasta Dam. At the Keswick Boat Ramp there is also a trailhead for the beautiful Sacramento River Rail Trail. View a map of the area surrounding the Keswick Boat Ramp.
