Northeast California Boondock Site Lures Fisherfolk

It's the largest river in this part of California. Disabled anglers can take advantage of an "accessible" fishing pier. Kayakers will find a launch site especially made for them. It's the pits. Well, OK, it's really the Pit River campground, northeast of Redding on Highway 299.

A seasonal campground, operated by the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) Pit River reopens this April 21 with a redesigned setup: You'll find seven individual campsites, a group camp, all equipped with tables, barbecues, and fire rings. While the BLM charges a daily fee of $8 per night, it's a bargain when compared to a lot of spots around this end of the country.

The Pit is said to have some of the finest Rainbow trout for the catching, whether you're using fancy equipment or a simple hook and a bucket of worms. Nevertheless, it is also said that there have been some cougars sighted in the area, usually around dawn or dusk. Remember, if you see a big cat, stand your ground, puff yourself up and look as big as you can. The chances of being attacked by these big cats are pretty small--in the US only around six attacks are reported annually. Here's a site with some information on what to do in a cougar encounter.
