|That record trout was caught in "Negro Bar", if you are looking for a fishable place in that area.
Also, in downtown Sac is Discovery Park on Richards Blvd. This is where the American enters the Sacramento. If you go, when you enter the park, don't go over the bridge, but go to the right... the road dips down, and you can go left, under the bridge. Fish just left of the point for shad (using shad darts), or striper (pile worms work great)... if you have a little time, take red worms on a very light rig and try to catch a pike minnow... if you can get one smaller than about 10", you have a serious live Striper candy.
This is also a great salmon spot, but more for the boater.
Also, be VERY careful in the water there... on that side, the current is extremely strong (and doesn't appear to be), and a few people drown there each year.
