This post is more for the locals, but I was cruising out on the DFG fish stocking site and I made a shocking discovery. This week they are stocking Silver Fork of the American River. I think the last time they stocked this creek, I was still in diapers. OK, it hasn't been quite that long, but I think the last time was before Silver Fork went on the "no Stock list" back in, maybe 2008.
I fished it last summer with my fly rod and caught one small rainbow, as I recall, but had written it off since it's been forever since they stocked it. I figured it now fell into the same category as the Cosumnes as a non-stocking creek. Definately a Tenkara creek.
I consider this huge that they are stocking it again. Now if they can only get up to Bear River, Silver, Caples, and Red Lakes. So many places to fish, so little time.
