    I just called them to confirm because I couldn't find anything online (all of their websites and such are out of date.)

    Shovels, picks and such are all okay. No displacing large rocks. Try to leave things as you find them.
    Allowed to work the gravel-bars only. Sluices okay so long as they're running gravel-bars and not taking from the surrounding areas and putting into the rivers.
    No metal detecting west of 49 is still in place but no other restrictions .
    No taking of historical artifacts.

    I didn't ask about highbanking or drywashing. Oops. (530) 885-4527 then '0' to get the front desk if you want to know.

    Thanks for letting us know @Goldwasher!

    Don't worry about the bears, just the rattlers. They like to hide in your secret glory hole.

    Didn't see any rattlers today but did see ASRA left a warning note instead of a ticket on someones window. They once called me off of my pan to move my vehicle instead of ticketing me which was rather descent of them. Park at your own peril......

    There is usually a parking fee for overnight, not sure about just a day fee. If so just pay and they stay away, hopefully. That area will always give up some gold. You can't go wrong.

    I was at Yankee Jim's. They seem to go a little easier there than at Mineral Bar. $10.00 to park daytime to sunset. No overnight parking.

    Did pretty good yesterday, initially wasted a little time digging a waiste deep hole on a gravel bar with some nice watermelon sized rocks all over the place- yet found little gold for the effort.

    I moved upstream to the next inside corner and did pretty well working the crevices there. Met a fellow prospector who told me where to find the gold there and even helped me position my sluice!

    Had a great time for my first river experience ( i normally work smaller creeks ). The hike up/ down pennyweight trail with all of my gear was perilous but I'm definitely up for the challenge again!

    If anyone is down to hit the river this weekend let me know, maybe we can meet at the trailhead??
