    From Fremont you'll have to go about 2 hours to get to a good area. Get a panning kit, because it has all the little stuff you'll need with out trying to figure it out yourself. Also, watch a couple of videos on panning on utube just to get the general idea of the techniques. The info on that link about the gold on the beach in SF is pretty intresting. I'm from Walnut Creek and I've never heard about that. It's something you shopuld keep in mind to check after some storm or high tide.

    Look up Bear River, free parking and free gold! I'm heading up there in a couple of weeks, river flow should still be good to use a sluice box.

    If you find your way over by Colfax you can try the American River, not sure what claims are where but you can call BLM and ask which parts are open.
