Do people take 17 foot jet boats out on the American or is the river too small / not apropriate? Sorry for what may seem like a dumb question to you locals.

    Re: American River and Fish and Game

    during the motor months i see quite a few guides put them on step in salmon season to get up riffles... i guess ranger and warden does not mind as i have seen them both watch them do it over and over again at upper sunrise... i see them usually put up river at 5 mph...

    I'm not so sure but I overheard someone said something at the warehouse today about 5 mile per hour limit and above ancil hoffman cannot have motor til April 15th or something.
