Andy, if you are interested in the Sacramento area, try the Auburn State Recreation Area or Bear River. A bit farther for you is the South Yuba River--some areas are hands and pans only (Bridgeport) so just do a little research before you drive.

You might consider browsing Sub-Forums: California for information (i.e., clubs, hunts, finds, legends, maps, etc.) directly related to your state.

Andy, welcome to Tnet! If your sluice is a larger model (keene A52 or even the 51) you might want to disguise it a little, camo paint, just so it does not attract so much attention, all silver and glaring in the sunlight. Folks other than prospectors are getting a bit sketchy around us, IMO...................63bkpkr

John,
Nice water pictures but why did you post them. Oh wait a minute is that a camo'd dredge in the water? Nice! That is a narrow creek, it looks might fine and I would assume that it was worth the effort! Lovely water............63bkpkr

Marz, the sluice sounds like a very nice setup, you didn’t mention any breathing gear, masks or wet suits; are you going to use a hooker to prospect? With no breathing equipment, you’ll be restricted to the banks where for years before you metal detectors and gold panners have been searching for gold.
