Thumbs up Sounds like a total hoot.

Good on you for putting this on; lots of 2hander folks in Nor. Cal and can't think of a case where this type of event has been put on before.

A real pin down on the 'Clave location would be good; 'Lower Sac' could be a bit sketchie for most coming any distance.

3. Hours, 9 AM to 2 PM

If you ever had an interest, question or wish to ask a rod maker a question about a rod you own of his, this is a great opportunity to do just that.

Thank you, and call either shop for more questions.

American River Parkway - Sacramento Bar

Welcome:

Each season Sacramento Bar river access adds a special touch to the uniqueness of the American River Parkway, located just across from the Lower Sunrise Recreation Area.

Fast Facts:

Sacramento Bar is a popular spot along the river year-round. Winter and autumn find salmon fishermen elbow-to-elbow in the chilly water.
Summer finds legions of rafters drifting past the San Juan Rapids past picnicking families.
Spring brings wildflowers, animals and nature-seeking hikers to the area.

How to Get There:

From U.S. Highway 50, take the Sunrise Blvd. off-ramp. Head north to Fair Oaks Blvd. Make a left on Fair Oaks, then an immediate left onto Pennsylvania Avenue. The kiosk is at the end of Pennsylvania Avenue, just past Magnolia Street.

We had around 250 people show up.

It was a great event for our first big one.

It will be an annual event so be looking for it.

We had wonderful vender participation.

Lot of Spey / two hander celebrities too.

Our location on the Lower American River was perfect too.
