Join H2O Adventures and the South Yuba River Citizens League (SYRCL) during the months of October and November on a float trip down the lower Yuba to see spawning salmon. This unique, hands-on educational experience and fun day on a raft includes learning about the Yuba River ecosystem, how mining has impacted the river, SYRCL’s work to protect salmon, viewing one of SYRCL’s major restoration projects at Hammon Bar, and hiking the Yuba Goldfields.
Get the opportunity to witness awe-inspiring salmon as they jump two-feet out of the water, show off their beautiful silvery coloration and dart wildly around our rafts. Be amazed by the spectacular journey of wild Chinook salmon as they make their way from the ocean to their ancestral spawning waters!
Get your hands (and feet) wet while learning about the salmon life cycle, their ecology, and human impact on these incredible fish.
Salmon Expeditions meet under the Highway 20 Bridge at Parks Bar. We ferry cars from Parks Bar to the pull-out at Sycamore Ranch. The day begins at 9 am and ends at approximately 3 pm.
