Hello All,

As announced at last night's club meeting, Christen Ayers of KPIX CH 5 will be coming out prospecting with us Saturday 2/8 at Bear River Day Use area.   

Yes we know it may be raining.  Yes we know it may be cold.   Rain or shine please be there to show support for the club.  Please be there by 9:00am

 

Directions to Bear River 

From the Bay Area:

Take I-80 East out of Auburn. About 12 miles past Auburn you will exit on Exit #133 (Canyon Way exit). Turn left on Placer Hills Rd and follow it for around 1- 1.5 miles until you come to Plumtree Rd. Turn right on Plumtree Rd. and follow it down to the river. As soon as you get to the first parking lot on the river, you have arrived. Please look for the canopy and banner. Come early, stay late, and most of all have a great time.

Alternately

The way to Bear River. I-80 East from Auburn. Take the West Weimar Crossroads exit. Go north over the overpass 1.5 miles to Placer Hills Rd. Turn right and go 2.5 miles to Plum Tree Rd. Turn left ,campground is at the bottom.

Our original directions are above, take your pick.....

My truck is loaded and I'm headed for the Bear in the A.M.. I wonder If I'll be able to work the area we were in on our last outing. I expect to see the river up some. I'll report when I get home....I'll post pics too! :)

What a beautiful day to be out prospecting!! I ran my wipers, on and off, most of the way up to the bear, but once I got there it was nice out. The river was off color but not that high. I didn't need rubber gloves because the river wasn't that cold. I stopped at Pioneer on my way up to pick up a blue bowl so I'll be playing with it tomorrow. I know I got some color and I guess the bowl will show me how much tomorrow!! I'll be posting some pics when I process my cons. :)
