    What is legal prospecting in California?

    I know dredging is banned, but can you highbank if your away from the river and your river water is not going back into the stream? Can it go into a catch hole? Just wanting to have a heads up before I come out there.. :P

    Its better to ask the question "what is going to be legal?" - and that is no motors. If you come this summer from NC why not bring a dredge and have at it. Then
    if they catch you just skip town back to east coast. They're gonna make criminals out of us anyways.

    When are you coming out, ywevis? I was born and raised in NC, not too far from you. Now I've lived in NorCal the last 5 years.

    I am leaving tonight..

    I thought the rules implied that you can't suction dredge, but can you use a blaster nozzle and work under water with air and move the rocks? Was thinking of doing under water metal detecting haha might be crazy but california has pretty big gold. Compared to NC, as long as I am not using a sluice to run my stuff through I should be good right?

    No motorized equipment. Most people I know are using homemade bazookas and sluices. You'll get plenty of gold just using a sluice if you are in N. Cal. Otherwise, grab your wetsuit, snorkel and snipe the bedrock. You'll probably find some good pickers if not more. Have fun!
