Still a pristine river flowing through a beautiful city.

Redding has done a remarkable job of making the Sacramento River a pleasant focal point as it passes through the city. In addition to being a pristine clear river, the city... read more

Redding has done a remarkable job of making the Sacramento River a pleasant focal point as it passes through the city. In addition to being a pristine clear river, the city fathers have developed the city property along the river into an exceptionally inviting place for their citizens and visitors. There are marinas, parks, museums, hiking trails, playgrounds, and interesting... More

2 day guided fly fishing trip from The Fly Shop in Redding. Given the drought conditions, the fishing was excellent. Guides are very knowledgeable and put us on fish all day. great fun!

You can take photo's, fish, raft, dine in a boat and float, and explore the many things the area has to offer..Like the River Trail, The Bridge, Turtle Bay Exploration Park, Caldwell Park, just to name whats available in Redding right on or around the river..And there are more attractions..

I am from Reno and anything over 65 degrees is considered summer-ish. Redding doesnt have much to do when it isnt "summer time". I think the city as a whole doesnt consider it summer until July. I will say though that due to the lack of other activities this is a great little journey to take. The Sacramento River still... More

Nice clean flowing water, much different from the river when it flows through Sacramento where it smells and is brown.

I enjoyed seeing the section of the Sacramento River which is in Redding. The Sacramento River is 447 miles. In the Sacramento River area of Redding, I enjoyed hiking on some trails, walking across Sundial Bridge, seeing some ducks and other wildlife. The other section of Sacramento River where we spend a lot of time is in Sacramento, the capitol... More

It's beautiful along the river. Very hot in the afternoon and the water is really cold, so plan accordingly.

Quiet, peaceful and relaxing! Great river to drift down, by raft, kayak, drift boat, etc. Wonder large trout to catch for dinner or catch and release. World renowned trophy fishing!

The Sac River Trails are awesome. The mostly paved trails wind along or near the Sacramento River, but ALL of Redding has been overrun with homeless & criminal transients. Fed & catered to by a large number of vocal do-gooder organizations, they run amok day & night. Take care as you would in a large dangerous city as law enforcement... More
