You can relive your childhood memories and take in the great outdoors with a family fishing trip this summer.

If you’re eager to get out on the water and try your luck at reeling in a big catch or two, here are some fishing areas in Placer County.

Halsey Forebay

As a wildlife habitat, Halsey Forebay is nearly 600 acres of woodland, forest, grassland and aquatic habitats near Auburn.

Quaint and scenic, the park offers access to plenty of recreation, including fishing.

Auburn State Recreation Area Ranger Station

This state park runs along the north and middle forks of the American River.

The middle fork is rich with trout and bass. Don’t wait too long, though. As summer approaches, the north fork is more of a fishing challenge.

Lake Clementine

Smallmouth bass and trout are popular catches at Lake Clementine. Other fish include brown trout and catfish.

The 3.5-mile long reservoir is near the north fork of the American River.

French Meadows Reservoir

Operated by the Tahoe National Forest, French Meadows Reservoir is a fun summer destination for boating and fishing.

Every two years, some 15,000 fingerling hybrid Kamloops are brought in and quickly grow large for fishing season.

Keep in mind that vehicle access can be limited at this recreation park.
