Sacramento River

Sacramento / Rivers

Sacramento River holds the record as the longest river in California, flowing 400 miles throughout Northern California. Rising in the Klamath Mountains and ending in the Sacramento-San Joaquin River Delta and San Francisco Bay, the Sacramento River is known throughout the U.S. for its population of Chinook salmon. In addition to the famous king salmon drawing visitors from across the country, the river is home to steelhead and rainbow trout, striped bass, small and largemouth bass, bluegill, green sunfish, shad, Sacramento sucker, catfish, herrings, minnows, and sturgeon. In the Yuba Sutter region, a boat launch, marina and other amenities can be found at Lovey’s Landing in Meridian.
