Are the flows just because of the past week's storms or more release out of nimbus dam?

I think I might fish the American on the 14th. I'm racing at Buttonwillow so what's another 3 1/2 hrs?

Backed down a little, it’s at 5000 cfs. Still need to take care. I use a inflatable PFD, just in case. The American takes a few people every year.
Hard to get out of the bushes to.
When I was a 7y/o kid I used to sneak up to the levee from American river drive and fish the river. I did not learn to swim until maybe 10. God protects the stupid. Parents back then had more kids. They all had spares.
