The Bureau of Reclamation is making changes to their fish weir in the Lower American below Nimbus Dam. One of their alternatives for getting fish to the fish hatchery at Nimbus is an innovative "naturalized" fish channel that would run parallel to the river. Depending on how the new fish channel is designed, this project may be part of later construction of a full-on white water slalom course at Nimbus (with over 46 foot of drop in less than a half mile).
This project is only the first of several decision making processes, but you can help by
Bureau of Reclamation meetings on the Nimbus Hatchery Weir Replacement Project are at the CSUS Aquatic Center, 1901 Hazel Avenue, 2nd Floor in Rancho Cordova.
