Add comment on:Folsom Lake and American River threatened by twin tunnels plan
Folsom Lake hosts a naturally spawning king salmon population, as well as abundant populations of spotted, largemouth and smallmouth bass, rainbow trout and channel catfish. The American River below the dam hosts a unique urban fishery for king salmon, steelhead, striped bass, American shad and other species that would be devastated if the peripheral tunnels are built. The American River is the crown jewel of the Sacramento metropolitan region.
