State and federal wildlife officials have unveiled ambitious plans aimed at helping endangered salmon and steelhead thrive again in Central California rivers.

Salmon season is getting a boost today and tomorrow thanks to a massive salmon release in the American River.
For the first time in four years, state wildlife officials are allowing a six-month Chinook salmon fishing season in Sacramento Valley rivers.
