    Hi my real name is Dan. I'm 27 and I live in Fresno CA. I wanted to introduce myself ad see if there were any people from the central valley in here. I use to fish here and there from the age of 6-12. Then I really got into it around 17. Became infatuated with it at 25. One of my projects is mapping the San Joaquin River from Highway 99 to Friant Dam. This is going to take some time but it'll be worth it once (if it ever happens) the Salmon run & Strippers return to the river......

    welcome Dan,
    I am new to BOC too!
    Thats quite a project your undertaking... I have started a similar project by boat from the Delta below Stocton up to the Stanaslas River... all in my old boat, sleeping and camping on the river. Its going to be great if they ever let the river go back to Natural flow.... From what I understand there use to be quite a bit of traffic on the old river.

    Jeb,

    Did you know that Mark Twain spent some time in California?.. You probably knew that! What a Character.... I have spent many hrs. on the old rivers out here. Going up as far as I can.... Spending the night, fishing, taking in the scenery... the "old Look" ...at some of ways that people have gone down to the river to fish, their favorite spots that can only be gotten to by tresspassing on someones property... can't stop my old boat from going up a river... "a looking and a fishing...."

    Swartseeneger..... thats table meat isn't it? He probably doesn't take his "hummer" off road... only to the Deli. Actually, my ancestors came out with Brigham and the folks.... I've even heard they were on the second boat after the Mayflower....Just a rumor.
