Feather River

Home to one of the largest steelhead runs in the California’s Central Valley, the Feather River is also a prime fishery for striped bass. The river is divided into the lower and upper sections. The lower Feather River has a series of riffles perfect for fly fishing, and attract anglers from around the state when the steelhead and striped bass run. The upper reaches of the Feather River above Lake Oroville are wild rivers with abundant rainbow and brown trout fishing for anglers willing to hike.
