The California Department of Fish and Wildlife (CDFW) is holding a panel presentation on summer fishing on the American River. The free event will be held at the Nimbus Hatchery Visitor Center in Rancho Cordova on June 19 at 7 p.m. Preregistration is not required.

CDFW scientific aides Don Paganelli and Mike Brune will cover fish species present during the summer months and share their tips for a successful catch, including gear, locations, methods and more. Both speakers will answer questions from the audience.

This is the second of four planned speaker sessions at Nimbus Hatchery Visitor Center with the third session covering climate change on the American River in July.

Nimbus Hatchery is located at 2001 Nimbus Road in Rancho Cordova and open daily to the public free of charge until 3 p.m. The hatchery offers hands-on exhibits, a river bluff trail and a play area for children.
