Project aims to restore habitat for salmon, trout in American River

A big construction project is underway in an effort to protect fish in the American River, especially as they struggle to survive a serious drought. Crews are working on the Sacramento Water Forum's habitat restoration project on the Lower American River at Ancil Hoffman Park in Carmichael. Workers carved out a new alcove for young Chinook salmon and steelhead trout to grow and hide from predators, and they moved lots of gravel to the area for the adult fish to use when laying eggs.
