    Anyone do any panning on Piru Creek just north of the lake?

    Ive been going to Piru for 25 years. I panned the river a bit before they made it unaccesable to vehicles (endangered arroyo toad they said.. what a bunch of malarky), anyway, I was wondering if anyone ever panned from blue point to the lake. ? Anyone? Anyone recently hike back there?

    I went to Piru last year for the first time I prospected. I really didn't have an idea what I was doing, an I found zero. I was near a GPAA claim. I do want to go back soon.

    I never saw this post, sorry.

    I would really like to go back to piru creek. First time I went I found zero gold. I really had no idea what I was doing. It was my one of my first prospecting days.

    I don't know that area well buy love to explore. Lets go sluicing there sometime! I will drive. You live in leisure village? I'm just around the corner !

    Send me a pm sometime brother!

    I took my son and 4 other Scouts to the GPAA claim near Gold Hill and dug all day test panned a dozen spots and ran a EZ sluice till dark.
    meet a local there and they said that almost 20 miles on this creek has been dredged for the last 30 years.
    We found nothing but the cleanest black sand I have ever seen.
    2 months later we took the Scouts and went to Heaton Flats on the East Fork San Gabriel River.
    We worked the east bank under a 10 ton bolder and had run several buckets when we hit a pocket.
    In 3 shovel fulls we pulled out almost 8 grams of nice flakes.
    The other Dads and I agreed to give it all to the Scouts.
    For the 6 Scouts it came out to about 100 pieces each.
    That was a few years now, but they will always remember that strike.
    East Fork SG River is still my most common mining destination to this day.
    I'm only 57 miles by freeway.
    I'll be there Wed Nov.14th for 3 nights.

    And If anyone inspires me to try something new, or better, I thank them now.

    I've had the same luck at the GPAA claim. I've been several times, since it's only about 30min from home. I was disappointed to see all the graffiti and broken bottles. A couple nice swimming holes and maybe some good fishing too.

    I was back in the area about a month or so ago....it is a good loooooong hike just to get back there....but once you are in the area, it is so wonderful isn't it. The last time I just road my bike all the way in, much faster. Can't wait to go back and poke around a bit.

    Only experience I have with Piru Ck. was back in 1986, and it didn't have to do
    with gold, rather it was a bunch of drunken young idiots trying to raft Piru Ck.
    when it was waaayyy too low.


    2 cheap rafts, 4 fools, a case of beer and off we went. When it was
    done I never wanted to try again, as my arse was so sore from bashing the rocks
    I couldn't sit for a couple days..lol

    Did you ever find any gold? Like even a tiny bit? I want to try that area because I have only been to the San Gabriel and the Kern so far. Thanks
